Our menu is starting to appear on the foodie map

OPINION: The Fraser Coast is starting to be a destination known for its food.

You've got the likes of Coast Restaurant which set the bar very high - the head chef is Nick Street-Brown, who we regard as one of the best chefs in the country and we have had the pleasure of working alongside him.

Then you've got Cafe Cavour, the little Italian deli-style cafe, which is open all day, that serves up amazing sweets - we had the pleasure of meeting Sylvia last week and we know they are doing an amazing job.

Rhi and Sarah from RA Organics serve it up with the best organic cold press juices and smoothies.

It's something so unique to the Fraser Coast and is an amazing product, we stock them at Eat.

To set the benchmark in the area for burgers there's Badgers and Browns and there's also Wild Lotus, where they, too, are passionate about local produce and great seafood.

Festival fun

IT'S food and wine festival time on the Fraser Coast.

Relish Food and Wine Festival is on next Saturday at Portside Maryborough. We are a huge part of it and we can't wait!

We will be at Relish with a pop-up gourmet sausage bar with a delicious Italian style sausage, together with the owner of our specialty coffee, Tim Adams himself.

We will also be doing a cooking demonstration on fermentation and preserving.

There is so much happening on the day. Wine, cheese, music, atmosphere, beautiful surroundings and an abundance of delish food! What else could you ask for?

It's a wonderful festival for the region.

It allows local producers and businesses to showcase what is on offer on the beautiful Fraser Coast.

In years to come the Relish Food and Wine Festival definitely has the potential to be like the Noosa Food and Wine Festival.

We are really looking forward to catching up with chef Alistair McLeod on the day also - he is a cheeky little man.

We are so proud to be a part of such a wonderful community that support each other.

In the lead-up to Relish Festival, there are many pre events happening all over the Fraser Coast - be sure to jump onto the Relish website for more info.

On Friday, June 6, Eat at Dan and Steph's will be hosting a Relish pre event Sausage Fest luncheon from 11.30-2.30pm.

It will be four courses of nothing but snags, with the sausage man himself, Dan.

Each course will also be paired with a delish RA Organic cold press juice.
