tweed food fest

The Tweed Foodie Fest, now in its third year, has gone from strength to strength.

What began as a one-night event at the Murwillumbah Showground has extended to ‘a five-day feast of premier dining events and hands-on activities’, according to festival director Kerry Turner.

Ms Turner, pictured here with local cheesemaker Deborah Allard, of Cheeses Loves You, has been cooking up a range of activities for the 2013 festival, which runs from Wednesday 27 November to Sunday 1 December.

New events this year include: the Caldera Cook-Off Challenge for young chefs, hosted by North Coast TAFE; a Long Table Dinner at Kingscliff;  a Signature Dish event with Fins Restaurant’s Steve Snow; High Tea at Saltbarp and an open day at the region’s biggest foodie strip, Carool Road.

Of course the highlight will again be Tweed’s Biggest Dinner Party at the Murwillumbah Showgrounds on Saturday November 30.

‘Last year, this event attracted over 1300 guests who all had a fantastic night sampling tasting plates from local cafes and restaurants while enjoying a line-up of local entertainers, and we are expecting an even bigger crowd this year,’ said Ms Turner.

‘We will also be running the popular food film night at Murwillumbah’s art deco Regent Theatre on Friday November 29. This was a sell-out last year so, for 2013 we’ll have a [second] film night at the Kingscliff Cinema on Thursday November 28.’
