The Festival will be held in the Sunshine Coast Hinterland village of Maleny in the luscious rainforest surrounds of Spicers Tamarind Retreat, home to the renowned Tamarind restaurant and cooking school.

The Tamarind's award-winning chefs will showcase six dishes, complemented by beverages to match the dishes' flavours, along with cooking demonstrations. Festival goers are encouraged to bring a picnic blanket and settle in for an afternoon of live entertainment and outstanding food.

In between tastings, guests can take a walk down to the beautiful Gardners Falls, along a dedicated walking track from Spicers Retreat's grounds.

Spicers Tamarind Retreat General Manager, Ryan Dillon, said that with the Retreat named after the highly-prized Asian tropical fruit, it was natural to hold the first-ever Sunshine Coast Asian Food Festival at The Tamarind.

“We grow many of the herbs and spices used in our dishes at The Tamarind and the Cooking School on the property, while the Sunshine Coast's abundant, high-quality fish, meat, poultry and vegetables allow us to create rich and authentic dishes that highlight why Asian cuisine is so suited to the Sunshine Coast,” said Ryan.

“When guests come to The Tamarind they get a real feel of a secluded, tropical haven, and yet we are just over half an hour from the Sunshine Coast's beaches. That's the secret of the Sunshine Coast – we are far more than beaches, and when people come up to the Hinterland they will discover a completely different and exotic world, where a beautiful landscape is matched by equally beautiful food and ambience.”

Tickets are $99 per person for the whole afternoon. Ticket bookings: https://www.eventbrite.com.au/e/sunshine-coast-asian-food-festival-tickets-37019965714

Accommodation packages are also available from $399 per night, including breakfast. Accommodation bookings: (07) 5420 5420 or https://spicersretreats.com/spicers-tamarind-retreat/
