Spend An Evening under the
Stars with Alastair
The Lockyer Valley’s Food
Ambassador is coming back to Gatton next month and he wants to spend an evening
under the stars – with you.
Hosted by Lockyer Valley
Regional Council and presented by Lockyer Valley Food Ambassador Alastair
McLeod, “An Evening under the Stars” promises to be an event not to be missed.
From grazing table nibbles
to shared table dining under big-sky stars and twinkling lights, guests will
enjoy a relaxed evening interspersed with the energy and antics of the celebrity
Lockyer Valley Mayor, Cr
Tanya Milligan said Council was putting the call-out to food enthusiasts to
share in this rare opportunity.
“An Evening under the Stars
promises to deliver the freshest paddock-to-plate menu abundant with slow-cooked
meats, seasonal Lockyer vegetables and mouth-watering desserts.
“We are thrilled to welcome
on board some of our world-class Lockyer Valley producers such as Stanbroke
Beef, Mulgowie Farms, Rugby Farms, Windolf Farms, Reck Farms, Schulte’s, along
with boutique producers of cheese, honey and herbs.
“Showcasing our outstanding
local producers is something Council is passionate about and we are thrilled to
once again offer a platform where they can continue to shine,” Mayor Milligan
For Alastair, knowing where
your produce comes from is a “soulful experience”.
“If you know the provenance,
then there’s every likelihood you will know the provider.
“For me, that intimacy comes
with a duty to produce food free from fuss, frippery or fad,” Alastair said.
Alastair will host “meet the
producer” segments throughout the evening and participants will also enjoy a
quick lesson in the art of barbecue and slow cooking.
An Evening Under the Stars
with Alastair will be held on Saturday 25 May from 5.30pm – 9.30pm.
