Plenty Up for Auction at Noosa Food and Wine Festival
Wannabe chefs rejoice!
Tourism Queensland is offering foodies the chance to bid for the opportunity to work with MasterChef judge and cravat wearing food critic extraordinaire Matt Preston during the Audi Noosa Food & Wine Festival 2010.
The ‘money can’t buy’ experience is part of Tourism Queensland’s, Queensland Holidays Ultimate Auctions going live online from 3pm, Tuesday, April 27 with all monies raised going to the Stephanie Alexander Kitchen Garden Foundation.
“We’re giving people the opportunity to enjoy the full VIP, gold ticket experience,” Matt said.
“They’ll get to rub shoulders with some of Australia’s best chefs, receive VIP passes to the Festival’s big events and be my guests at the sold- out Italian degustation dinner. They will also attend a top-secret launch event over the course of the weekend.
“The downside is that the successful bidder and their guest will also spend time with me as my sous chefs as we cook over 1000 picnic dishes for the Critics Cooking Competition at Lions Park on Saturday May 1.”
The ultimate auction winner will be left plenty of free time for getting out and seeing all the Sunshine Coast has to offer with its relaxed, yet sophisticated lifestyle, encompassing the coastline from Caloundra to Rainbow Beach and the lush countryside of the hinterland
Other components of the package include:
* Four nights luxury accommodation for two at The Rise, Noosa
* Two nights luxury accommodation for two at Mantra Mooloolaba Beach
* Two VIP Event Gold Passes
* Two VIP Degustation Dinners
* Two VIP entries to secret event
* Dinner at the award-winning Spirit House restaurant
Queensland Holidays Ultimate Auctions showcases the unique types of packages people can enjoy when holidaying in Queensland.
There will be nine other packages on auction from around the state up for bid at the same time as the Noosa Gourmet Getaway.
