Capelli at Gympie’s Flavourfest and FlavourfeastAugust 5 2011 | General
At Capelli Foods we did our bit to support local Gympie and Sunshine Coast produce at this year’s Flavourfest and Flavourfeast Festival. We showcased our very popular tapas as well as our pork belly, chorizo and chickpea, beef pinchos and marinated mushrooms. The dishes were so popular we had sold out by 1.30 – next year we will bring a lot more food!
It was fantasitc to see so many local producers gathered together to show their latest and favourite products. The day finished with the dinner as four local chefs showed off their skills using fresh local produce. Michael provided the main meal of an alternate drop of crispy skin duck or Nolan’s private selection rib eye served with local widgee pumpkin and white sweet potato crush, Wilson’s pocket Zucchini flowers and Goomborian green beans topped with Capelli own house made jus.
Michael loved it and was in his element rubbing shoulders with celebrity chefs Rita Macali, Ben O’Donoghue and Matt Golinski.
