Welcoming Australia’s newest food festival to the Sunshine Coast | The Curated Plate

Like a meat pie and tomato sauce, a cold mango on a hot Summer’s day, or a bucket of chips at the footy; good food and good beer go hand in hand. So when we heard that the Curated Plate was coming to the Sunshine Coast and Your Mates Brewing Co. would be involved, we were ecstatic.

The Curated Plate is a new food festival that highlights the relationship between chef and producer. Famed for our vibrant, fresh produce, the Sunshine Coast region is an obvious choice for the producer component of the festival. An incredible lineup of chefs have been selected to bring the Coast’s amazing produce to life, including international guest chefs Raymond Blanc OBE (UK), Zaiyu Hasegawa (Japan), Monique Fiso (New Zealand) alongside Australian-based talent Peter Gilmore, Analiese Gregory, Clayton Wells, Matt Stone, Chase Kojima, Darren Robertson, Alanna Sapwell, Nelly Robinson and Troy Rhoades-Brown and more.

I know what you’re thinking. Where can I enjoy the masterpieces these culinary legends create whilst enjoying a Your Mates beer? We’re pleased to announce that our brews will be featured at 4 Curated Plate events this weekend. Here they are from Friday to Sunday:
