The launch of the Noosa International Food & Wine Festival 2013 will showcase a ‘world first” on Thursday May 16 as the Festival kicks off its tenth anniversary event.

Supporting the musical maestro’s will be ten very special guests, the S.Pellegrino World’s Best Restaurant Chefs, adding flavor and vigor to the magic of the evening.

The Gala Concert promises to be a sensory feast of gastronomic and musical delights as the world’s best culinary masters chop, blend and whisk in time to some great orchestral favourites as guests savor each of the canapés prepared. Guaranteed to whet the appetite of food and music lovers alike guests can look forward to the concert culminating in a spectacular finale.

Concert patrons can choose from concert-only tickets or attend one of two dinners that includes pre-concert drinks, reserved undercover seating, canapés from the S.Pellegrino Chefs followed by a three-course dinner with wine at either berardo’s restaurant and bar or at the hospitality pavilions at the Festival Village. For the dinner guests, this is a golden unique opportunity to travel the world and taste in one evening the creations of ten of the world’s leading chefs.

Thanks to the support of Westpac and S.Pellegrino the Festival has raised the bar even further with enhanced infrastructure and a higher caliber of entertainment.
