For the sixth year running, the Food & Wine Expo is back and bigger than ever.

With three days of gourmet food, wine and celebrity chefs everywhere you turn, this year’s Food & Wine Expo will be packed full of flavour and fun.

The Food & Wine Expo is an annual three-day event dedicated to all things food focusing on education and demonstrations from celebrity chefs, a huge selection of food and wines, cheeses, cocktails and everything gourmet!

There will be over 150 exhibitors — businesses in all areas of gourmet food, wines, homewares and kitchenware — who will come together to show you the latest products and share ideas for you to try at home.

Or you could simply sit back and watch the free demonstrations from the line up of celebrity chefs including Carly and Tresne from My Kitchen Rules, Ben Milbourne and Courtney Roulston from Master Chef and well-known chefs Yuta Yoshimura and Dennis Duncanson. The Celebrity Main Stage will have all the latest recipes and cooking ideas for you to try at home. Get in early to grab a front row seat, then sit back and relax and watch the chefs create sensational recipes.

Want to get up close and personal with your favourite chef? Then check out the Celebrity Dining Room for your chance for an intimate dining experience with a one of the celebrity chefs. Choose from a Friday night dinner, or a luncheon on either the Saturday or Sunday (or both). Your tickets include a glass of champagne and nibbles on arrival, followed by a full three course meal matched with wines (and the chance to learn Masterchef secrets).

Hands up who loves free samples? Everyone put their hand up right? Then get yourself to the Appreciation Area to taste, sample and learn the art of fine food and wine. With Appreciation sessions continually running throughout the three days – there will definitely be something on while you’re there.

And for all those wine aficionados, you might not need it but who doesn’t love to swirl and sip on wine at any time of the day? Book a spot in the Official Wine Masterclass. You will examine colour and clarity and learn wine tasting tricks for your next dinner party, all guided by wine connoisseur Mr. Paul Hanratty.

Finally, make sure you wander through all the stalls to enjoy the samples and discovering the latest ideas that will make your next dinner party one to be remembered.

The Gold Coast Food & Wine Expo runs from January 30 – February 1 at the Gold Coast Exhibition Centre. For more information, check out our event guide listing.
