Gold Coast hosts food and wine festival

THE third annual Gold Coast Food and Wine Festival is set to explore the evolution of the city's culinary landscape.

More than 15,000 food and wine lovers are expected to gather at more than 30 events across the coast for the celebration, which will run between May 31 and June 3.

Using the Gold Coast's world-famous landscapes and venues, from the north at Beenleigh, to the south at Coolangatta, the festival celebrates the Gold Coast as a food destination.

In its third year, the event will bring together the best local chefs, street food, restaurants, precincts, wineries, breweries and distilleries across a weekend at the start of winter.

There are degustations, picnics, workshops, demonstrations and signature food events.

Festival director Michelle Christoe says the theme "Evolve" sprang from the changing landscape of the Gold Coast food and wine industry, especially with the legacy of the Commonwealth Games in April.

"The Gold Coast is in the spotlight. With the nation's biggest events held here in 2018, there has been an explosion in the culinary landscape.

"As we consider the legacy of the Games as a community, we ask the question, how have we evolved and what do we stand for?"

"The art of cooking is to transform ingredients. The art of hospitality is to transform people: to change them, to connect them to a deeper understanding of the world and each other through food.

"The culinary landscape of a city tells the story of its community."
