After a two-year hiatus, Moree on a Plate is back, offering a range of local and travelling producers showcasing the wonderful fresh fare on offer in the North West.
With the Moree district long regarded as one of the world’s premier producers of grains and cotton, a number of evolving industries, such as oranges and olives, have also cemented their place on the table in recent years.
Moree on a Plate committee member, Phoebe Watts, said Moree was one of Australia’s top food bowls and there was a continually growing diversity of what’s on offer.
“It’s a very exciting time for producers and the community and the Moree on a Plate Food Festival is the perfect opportunity to showcase our produce in a relaxed, social environment,” she said.
The day will be held on Mother’s Day weekend, Saturday, May 12 on the grounds of Moree Secondary College, culminating in a Moree on a Plate Gala Evening on Saturday night.
Committee member, Abby White, said the cocktail evening was a chance for the community to get their dancing shoes on with Brisbane five-piece band Radio Club performing live.
“The evening is an opportunity to get dressed up, mingle with old friends and new and cap off what is going to be a great day.”
Tickets to the gala evening, to be held at the Moree Town and Country Club, are available for $80 at A Tasty Surprise or by phoning 6752 6902.
Tickets include entertainment, a gourmet meal and a complimentary drink.
“It will be a great social night out for the whole community so get your dancing shoes on and don’t miss out,” Miss White said said.
