What a caper

Caper Byron Bay Food & Culture Festival is infiltrating Brunswick Picture House for three days during the inaugural festival from Friday 11 till Sunday 13 November with dinner and a show by night and Yum Cha restaurant and bar by day.

Local Mullum boy Louis Tikaram, now acclaimed chef of Stanley Restaurant in Brisbane, is returning to his roots to set your tastebuds ablaze with a Cantonese banquet, as you get transported back in time with a cabaret show by celebrated cabaret and jazz performer Monica Trapaga. In collaboration with the Brunswick Picture House, Caper Byron Bay presents ‘Cantonese and Cabaret’ which will run on Friday and Saturday night from 5pm, with shared tables of ten.

Guests will be treated to pre-show cocktails on arrival in the iconic Brunswick Picture House garden Who’s Yo Mama Bar, before heading into the cabaret theatre for dinner during the show.

Your senses will be taken on a transformational ride as you are treated to a 1930s-style show by celebrated cabaret performer Monica Trapaga. Then, set your taste buds ablaze with a Cantonese banquet from acclaimed chef, Louis Tikaram of Stanley.

Once-famed, Good Food Guide’s Young Chef of the Year, Louis Tikaram, was raised on a 110-acre farm in Mullumbimby and developed his love of food and interest in his heritage from his Fijian Chinese grandmother. 

Louis was delighted to return to his roots here in Brunswick Heads and share with you a night to remember.

The gorgeously talented Monica Trapaga has performed for over 30 years in both television and on the stage – from much-loved children’s shows like ABC’s PlaySchool and Disney Playhouse to Good Morning Australia and Sydney Opera House productions of the Mad Hatter’s Tea Party and The Boy who was Born With a Moustache.

Grab a table of ten with friends or come along and make some new ones!

In addition to dinner and a show, the Picture House garden bar will be turned into ShanDong MaMa Yum Cha house on Saturday 12 and Sunday 13 from 10am till 4pm, with dumpling master Mama Ying from famed Melbourne ShanDong MaMa restaurant serving up a carefully selected set menu of her handmade dumplings.

The Caper crew organisers haven’t forgotten your thirsty needs either, with the people from new restaurant Trouble San opening in Brunswick Heads later this year, delivering cool beats and great drinks at the Who’s Yo MaMa Bar in the Brunswick Picture House garden.

All tickets and tables booked through caperbyronbay.com.
