Brisbane Good Food Month Program

Brisbane Good Food Month Program

Good Food Month presented by Citi returns to Brisbane in July with incredible feature events exclusively curated for Good Food Month. The Night Noodle Markets, everyone's favourite open-air Asian-hawker markets, will also return to South Bank; sizzling, smoking and searing all your favourite foodie treats. Let's Do Lunch and Friends of Good Food Month will see the best of Brisbane's food scene offer up imaginative and ingenious menus that are only available for Good Food Month. The focus is all on food this July in Brisbane, so get ready to enjoy and indulge!

Venessa Cowell, Head of Food Events, Fairfax said: "The Brisbane food scene is finessed, dramatic and innovative and we wanted to showcase that in this year's Good Food Month's program. We've got one-off, unique collaborations across three feature events that food lovers of Brisbane will be very excited about. We've brought the head chef of two-hatted Lûmé to GOMA for an evening of modern art, both on the walls and on your plate. The perennial favourite, Young Chefs Lunch returns this year, showcasing the next generation of superstar chefs at OTTO. The incredibly beautiful and extremely delicious Donna Chang's will host an evening with chef, author and television personality, Adam Liaw.

The Night Noodle Markets will return to South Bank from July 24 - August 4 offering Brisbane the most exciting Asian Hawker food festival of the year. This year the sizzling food market under the stars will once again be packed with exciting and oh-so-fresh Asian-influenced flavours. There'll be returning favourites such as Hoy Pinoy, Gelato Messina, Shallot Thai, Bangkok Street Food, What the Pho, Bao Wow, Bao Brothers, Twistto & Waffleland, as well as some new and exciting stallholders.

The much-loved Let's Do Lunch presented by Church Road series returns, opening up Brisbane's amazing lunch offerings at Good Food Guide hatted restaurants, for a specially curated price of $45 including a glass of Church Road, beer or soft drink throughout July. Friends of Good Food Month also returns, which sees a whole host of the city's favourite restaurants offer unique food events and collaborations - exclusively for Good Food Month!


Young Chefs Lunch presented by Citi | OTTO | Sunday, 14 July, 12.30pm | $155
They are the future Marco Pierre Whites and Stephanie Alexanders; the up and coming generation of talented young chefs, and it's their time to get the spotlight. Join three of the hottest rising chefs from Brisbane's top restaurants as they take over the kitchen at OTTO under the guidance of head chef, Will Cowper.
Tickets include three courses with matching wines and beer supplied by James Squire.

SOLD OUT - GOMA x Lûmé | Gallery Of Modern Art | Friday, 12 July, 7.30pm | $160
GOMA Executive Chef Douglas Innes-Will's approach to food combines modern, Australian-inspired cuisine with contemporary ingredients and techniques, focusing on locally sourced produce. He was appointed GOMA's Executive Chef in May 2018 and is inspired by the creative environment of the Gallery, so for something truly unique, we decided to hold this special collaborative dinner in the gallery itself. Heading up the kitchen at GOMA are chefs Matt Blackwell and Michael Bickford, who previously worked alongside each other at Peter Gunn's Ides Restaurant. It was during their stint in Melbourne where both Matt and Michael shared their mutual admiration for the iconic two-hatted Lûmé Restaurant.
There are certain characteristics that John Rivera's food at Lûmé shares with one-hatted GOMA; both are edgy, creative, and have a spirit of experimentation about them. The team at GOMA and Rivera are a match made in creative culinary heaven - and we invite you to consume both GOMA's and Rivera's works of art.
Tickets include six courses with matching wines and beer supplied by James Squire.

SOLD OUT - Adam Liaw at Donna Chang | Donna Chang | Thursday, 4 July, 6.30pm | $180
Adam Liaw, television host of Destination Flavour and author of five incredible cookbooks, knows a lot about Asian cuisine. He's a walking Wikipedia on food, and he's inviting you on a cultural and culinary journey at Brisbane's coolest, and tastiest, modern Chinese restaurant, Donna Chang. After his two sell-out Canberra Good Food Month events in March, we anticipate tickets will sell out quickly.
Tickets include six courses with matching wines and beer supplied by James Squire.
