Catch a taste of the Bay

SOMETHING tasty is brewing down Urangan way.

Organisers of this Sunday’s Hervey Bay Seafood Festival at Fisherman’s Park will unleash Tastes of the Bay on the Fraser Coast.

The new departure sees the introduction of a celebrity chef, a talented group of high school students and some spectacular local produce.

Four of Hervey Bay’s signature seafoods will be served up by Andrew Mirosch in a unique dining experience.

Tastes of the Bay is a three-course wild-catch seafood lunch – prepared and served by hospitality students from Urangan State High School – with matching Sirromet wines, all at a cost of only $55 a person.

A renowned chef for almost three decades, Andrew runs iconic Brisbane restaurant Two Small Rooms.

A multi-award winner for his cooking expertise, he is a fierce supporter of local producers and travels far and wide to promote locally grown regional foods.

“We are proud to present dishes cooked from prawns, scallops, crabs and fish that have been sustainably harvested from the local wild-catch fisheries,” festival organiser and Queensland Seafood Industry Association director Elaine Lewthwaite said.

“They have been hand processed by locals in the onshore seafood processing industry.

“The seafood industry is a strong and vibrant part of the Fraser Coast lifestyle and a major contributor to the economic and social structure of the region.”
