Taste Tweed 2018 has officially launched!

We are so excited to have the Taste Tweed – Winter Food Festival 2018 – officially LAUNCHED!

Surrounded by sponsors, media and local producers, Jayne and her team launched the festival with cooking demonstrations, and tastings, all pool side at Peppers Resort and Spa.

The whole month of July will be filled with tours, lunches, tastings, dinners, markets, picnics, cooking classes and fashion events … with the majority of these FREE to enter!  The ticketed events sell out quickly – so make sure you download our App IMMEDIATELY (‘Taste Tweed on iTunes or Google) and check out the full program and purchase your tickets online before you miss out!

Here is how the first week of Taste Tweed is looking …

Sunday 1st July

Winter Wonderland Pyjama Party at The Surf Club Kingscliff.   Featuring Fat Albert Band and food trucks, this is the final Salty Sounds of the season – so don’t miss it!   It all kicks off at 3pm and there are prizes to be won for the best pyjamas!

Monday 2nd July

This Monday – and EVERY Monday in July, you can “Shank goodness it’s Monday” at The Surf Club Kingscliff.  Devour a delicious lamb shank and mash meal for only $13 per person.  Reservations can be made direct with the Club on (02) 6674 1572.

Wednesday 4th July

The Tasty Trivia Night is on again at the Cudgen Leagues Club.  Get a team together and head along to the Club by 6pm for a 6.30pm start.  It’s FREE to enter and great meals and drinks are available to purchase.

Mt Warning Tours will be running their 3-hour, 5-course seafood degustation cruise EVERY Wednesday.  Departing at 10.30am, bookings can be made direct with Mt Warning Tours.  Cost is $119 per person.

Thursday 5th July

The Taste Tweed Festival’s very own 3-hour, 5-course seafood degustation cruise will take you on a journey of flavours and textures that will invoke, delight and surprise – all whilst exploring the scenic Tweed waterways on the beautiful Mount Warning Tours ‘Spirit of Wollumbin’.  Departing at 10.30am, bookings can be made here with a special Taste Tweed price of only $99 per person.

Friday 6th July

As it is the first Friday night of the month – that means it’s time for the Kingscliff Night Market!  It will be an extra awesome night as it coincides with school holidays – and of course, the Taste Tweed Festival!  The Barefoot Bar at The Surf Club Kingscliff will be open serving Mulled Wine along with other favourites to warm your insides.  All your favourite food trucks and market stalls will be there – plus a bunch of new and exciting ones to tempt you.

Saturday 7th July

The Season Lazy Long Lunch will be happening EVERY Saturday in July.  Serving from 12.30pm, there will be a different ‘feature product’ each week, foraged from our local farmers and prepared by Executive Chef Craig ‘Robbo’ Robertson.  To book, call (02) 6674 7766 or email the team at [email protected]  Like and follow our Facebook Page or download our APP (‘Taste Tweed’ on either iTunes or Google) to find out what the ‘feature product’ will be as soon as it has been announced.

Also happening EVERY Saturday in July is the Brothers Cafe Restaurant and Bar “Beef and Bottles” night.  The team will be pairing a series of delicious beef dishes with some of their beautiful wines.  Book today by calling (02) 6674 8499 or via their website.

Sunday 8th July

One of our favourite tours every year is The Taste Tweed Cycle Tour.  Ride along the spectacular Kingscliff Foreshore & Tweed River bank towards Fingal Head Lighthouse.  Soak up views of the Giants Causeway, Cook Island and watch for whales, dolphins and the vast array of local bird life.  Head back to Kingsliff via Chinderah for a well-earned seafood tasting lunch.  This one sells out FAST – so book your spot here.

So there you have it … Week 1 of Taste Tweed 2018 – we hope you are as excited as we are!
