QT Gold Coast’s unique paddock to plate experience in support of local farmers
Indulge your taste buds with a true paddock to plate experience that’s as delicious as it is impactful at QT Gold Coast this month. Grab your fork and pack your comfiest feasting attire for QT’s newest luxury food and wine experience – Be Our Guest – in support of local farmers.
Be Our Guest is a year-long collaboration with local producers who are doing it tough whether they’ve been affected by bushfires, drought or the impacts of COVID-19.
Once a month, QT Gold Coast’s Bazaar Marketplace will invite guests to an intimate food and wine experience where QT’s award winning Chefs will work with each producer to curate a one-of-a-kind five course showstopper to hero their products and flavours. Guests will taste, sample and swill while engaging with the producer and discovering their personal stories.
The series kicks off with Tommerup’s Dairy Farm, from the Scenic Rim. The sixth-generation dairy farm, with dynamic farming duo Dave and Kay Tommerup at the helm, has been part of the fabric of the Scenic Rim since 1874. After suffering through one of the worst droughts in history, as well as the impacts of bushfires and the ongoing effects of COVID-19, the pair have evolved their business in true farming spirit to overcome these challenges. Kay and Dave’s new and ethically farmed products deliver an authentic farm to plate experience for the conscious consumer.
QT Chefs have designed a premium menu to hero Tommerup’s dairy products in a five-course menu to bring out the flavours of Tommerup’s creamery and pork products, with an optional wine tasting pairing. Guests are invited to fill their suitcase with products to continue to support local producers such as the Tommerup’s.
Be Our Guest: Tommerup’s Dairy Farm takes place on February 28 at 12pm at Bazaar Marketplace, QT Gold Coast. Tickets $135pp. QT will donate 5% of the ticket price to Drought Relief.
The next instalment of Be Our Guest will feature Summerland Camel Farms with a star-studded line-up of local producers to be announced monthly.
