Brisbane Food Month will see renowned chef Alanna Slapwell bring her Noosa pop-up, Esmay, to Brisbane’s Baja Restaurant. Only a few blocks over, Adam Wolfers of Gerard’s Bistro, Alex Munoz of Labart, and Louis Tikaram will reunite at Tikaram’s Stanley Restaurant to deliver a delightfully nostalgic dinner party. And culinary talents will collide as the skilful team at the CBD’s Donna Chang Restaurant combine forces with the gelato gods of Gelato Messina for a yum cha high tea experience like no other! Additionally, The Young Chefs Lunch presented by Citi will transform into a vegetarian affair for the first time in Brisbane Good Food Month history at Ovolo The Valley’s ZA ZA TA Bar & Kitchen.
