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.
“We’re both very passionate about keeping the farm going for future generations and we want to respect and honour the previous generations who have farmed here. We love helping our visitors connect with where their food comes from,” Kay says.
QT Chefs have designed a premium menu to hero Tommerup’s dairy products in a five-course menu and includes damper rolls with Tommerup’s cultured butter, pork three ways ,twice cooked duck fat potatoes with BBQ salt, fresh Scenic Rim vegetable sides, and desserts that will make your senses explode!
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.
