Farmers Market Cooking Tour, QLD

From Farmer's Market To Plate

He will truly feel part of the Noosa community after exploring and supporting the local farmers’ markets and then creating the ultimate dishes from the freshest fare – all before sitting down to enjoy their creations with wine to match each dish.



Perfect for the guy loves a bit of sustainable living and playing his part in reducing his environmental footprint, this Flavours of Noosa: From Market to Plate, Combined Market Tour and Cooking Class takes him on a guided tour of the famous Noosa Farmers’ Market before creating incredible dishes with the fresh fare collected. The markets support the local producers and businesses of the region – helping both the community and the planet thrive.

After a guided tour of the Noosa Farmer’s Market, the participants will gather with a backdrop of tropical gardens and Noosa National Park, where they will enjoy a café style coffee, and a freshly baked muffin before creating magic in the kitchen. This hands-on cooking experience is designed to be relaxed, fun and sociable, where students can learn tricks they can use for years to come.

The menu consists of 6 mouth-watering recipes to get them truly inspired:

- Local antipasto platter

- Spanish inspired blistered padrón peppers

- Grilled Cedar Street Cheeserie buffalo haloumi with a lime and macadamia nuts dressing

- A salad of avocado prawns from Mooloolaba with a coconut and chilli jam dressing

- Heirloom tomato salad

- Tropical fruit tarte tatin with a ginger cream

Possibly the best part of the Flavours of Noosa journey is when everyone gets to sit down for a hard earned meal of their work! Complete with a couple of glasses of wine to match the dishes, they will enjoy full servings of scrumptious delights to finish off an awesome day of supporting and celebrating local life. Each student will then have a folder full of recipes, tips and notes from their class so they can truly recreate their dishes once they get back home.
