The Burdekin Water Festival committee today announced their guest chef for the upcoming Flavours of the World. Michael Brine, Executive Chef at A Touch of Salt, will bring his award-winning skills to the stage on July 22nd.
Since opening in 2005, A Touch of Salt, has risen to become one of Queensland’s finest restaurants. Brine and his team have secured awards from leading industry sources and, most importantly, from their diners.
In 2016, the restaurant was named in the Top 10 in Queensland in the Brisbane Times People’s Choice Awards and was also a Regional Winner in the Australian Good Food Guide’s Reader’s Choice Awards. This year further praise was added by Australian Good Food Guide.
Despite awards from around the country, Brine’s demonstration at Flavours of the World will focus on the amazing produce available locally. Guests at the event can expect to see local meat and seafood given the treatment that wins awards, whilst being something they can do at home.
Burdekin Water Festival President, David Cooper, said Brine was a great fit for the event. “Flavours of the World is about celebrating the amazing food we have on our doorstep so to have someone of Michael’s standing share that passion means we will have a true celebration of food,” Mr Cooper said.
Mr Cooper also encouraged local community groups and businesses to get involved with the event. “Flavours of the World is a great opportunity for locals to share their love of food and to raise some funds,” he said.
Applications for stalls at Flavours of the World are now open and available from the Burdekin Water Festival website.
