Scenic Rim Eat Local Month program

Scenic Rim Eat Local Month program

The full program for Scenic Rim Eat Local Month has been revealed, and it’s bursting with creativity, flavour, and authenticity—as well as carrots, cheese, wine, beer, and pickles!

In its 13th year and second in the month-long format (there was just too much flavour to fit in a week!), Australia’s most authentic paddock-to-plate food and farming experience will shine the light on the farmers, growers, producers, artisans, chefs, and creators and the spectacular produce of the famous Scenic Rim throughout June.

There are more than 120 food events from Beaudesert to Beechmont, Kerry to Kalbar, and Mount Alford to Tamborine Mountain, including 40 Long Lunches, Degustations, and Dinners, 23 Workshops and Classes, 37 Tours and Experiences, 53 Meet the Producer opportunities, and 50+ Family-Friendly options. The program also includes over 50 new or redesigned events.

As if in a wonderful endorsement by Mother Nature, there are five full weekends in June this year, meaning more flavour experiences for everyone!

The event is supported by 15 serious food names, with this roll call of volunteer Scenic Rim Food Ambassador chefs the envy of the country – Alison Alexander (Queensland Food Fellow), Ash Martin (Eden Health Retreat), Brenda Fawdon (Picnic Real Food Bar), Cameron Matthews (Mapleton Public House), Caroline Jones (Three Girls Skipping), Daniel Groneberg (The Roadvale Hotel), Glen Barratt (Wild Canary), Javier Codina (Moda Brasa Bar), Josh Lopez (Lopez at Home), Kate Raymont (Chef), Olivier Richard Ousby (Tama and Ousby Food). Two new flavour makers were welcomed in 2023 by acclaimed chefs Jack Stuart (Blume Restaurant) and Simon Furley (Embers Wood Fire Dining).

This year, two more outstanding local produce chefs have been welcomed – Elliot Platz, who heads up the kitchen at Kooroomba Restaurant and is championing the next generation of local chefs in the region, and French-born Olivier Boudon from Roastbeef and the Frog.
