Brisbane Times’ Good Food Month announces 2017 program

Brisbane Times will once again be putting on their Good Food Month in Brisbane this July, spreading a number of curated dining experiences across the month including returning staples like Brisbane’s Young Chefs Lunch and a twist on old festival favourite, Hats Off Dinner, now known as Hat Swap; new events will include Laneway! Streetfood! Music! presented by Beer the Beautiful Truth, Hats Swap and the Good Food Month Launch After Party.

Of course, this means that the famous Night Noodle Markets will once again be held over 12 nights at South Bank, kicking off on July 19th with an open-air Asian-inspired hawker-style market with stallholders including Gelato Messina, Waffleland, Teppanyaki Noodles, Little Kyoto, Donburi Station, Spanthai, Hoy Pinoy, Blackstar x N2 Extreme Gelato and more.

Top picks of the program include the aforementioned “Laneway! Streetfood! Music!” by by Beer the Beautiful Truth, a secret-location event on Friday 28th July with cold brews complimented by street food created by some of the country’s top chefs. The best part: tickets are only $50 and include food, ice cold beer (or cider) and live music. Sitting alongside this is the Brisbane’s Young Chefs Lunch on 23rd July; a comprehensive showcase of Australia’s top young guns with a lunch held at ARIA under the guidance of Head Chef Ben Russell.

Those who really like to splurge can also participate in the new “Escape to Halcyon House” event, set at $2000 per couple with an overnight stay on the stunning coastline of Northern NSW. That involves an obvious getaway to luxury Halcyon House with welcome drinks by the pool, an exclusive dinner with Paper Daisy chef Ben Devlin, morning yoga, a champagne breakfast, and a cooking class designed around the best seasonal ingredients with a special guest chef.
