Farmers Market Cooking Tour, QLD
From Farmer's Market To Plate
With such an abundance of goodness at their doorstep, the locals of Noosa gather each Sunday at the famous Noosa Farmers’ Market to showcase their fresh and quality fare. Where the community comes together to support each other’s ventures, they also have visitors from all around Australia and the world. This amazing gift opportunity, Flavours of Noosa: From Market to Plate, Combined Market Tour and Cooking Class sees participants receive a guided tour of these gorgeous markets – helping select the freshest local produce, before heading back to learn some seriously great tricks to create the best meals from seasonal goodies.
The classes are designed to make each student feel at home, no matter their skill level in the kitchen. It’s a hands-on experience, with a fun and friendly atmosphere, with only a maximum of 10 people at any time to keep that intimate feel. And after arriving to a café style coffee and a freshly baked muffin each, they will all be friends in no time.
The menu consists of 6 mouth-watering, fresh and healthy meals that the students will help to create. Starting with an old favourite, the class will put together an antipasto platter of local goodies, before going Spanish style with some blistered padrón peppers. They will then help support local small business by learning to grill Cedar Street Cheeseries buffalo haloumi, dressed with a macadamia nut and lime mix.
Next up is a salad made up of local prawns from the stunning Mooloolaba, complete with a coconut and chilli jam dressing, and a yummy heirloom tomato salad. To satisfy those sweet tooth students, they will use local fruits from the market to create a tropical tarte tatin with a ginger cream to top it off. All of the recipes, tips and class notes will be available to students in a folder to take home, so they don’t have to worry about remembering every little detail.
After getting their hands dirty making magic in the kitchen, the day will finish off with a sit down meal, where they get to try all of their amazing creations with full sized portions. Complete with wines matched perfectly to the specific dishes, they can relax and take in their beautiful surrounds of the tropical garden and Noosa National Park.
