Linger Longer Lunch

Date: Sunday 18th July 2010
Location: Eumundi CWA Hall Courtyard, Eumundi

LINGER LONGER LUNCH in Eumundi

Vive l'Eumundi!  Bastille Day celebration for launch of the LINGER LONGER LUNCH

Sunday 18 July will see the inaugural LINGER LONGER LUNCH in Eumundi, with the Bastille Day theme sure to inspire foodies with a love of seasonal local cuisine with Sunshine Coast inspiration.

The LINGER LONGER LUNCH is being coordinated by renowned local chef and founder of Cedar Creek Farm Bush Foods, Peter Wolfe.

"Think French country ambience on a glorious winter day with fabulous cuisine in Sunshine coast style," says Peter.

"Although Bastille Day falls on the previous Wednesday, we felt the following Sunday would still be appropriate and provide an opportunity for visitors from Brisbane and other areas to sample our fabulous fresh produce," Wolfe said.

"There's nothing like a long lazy lunch on a Sunday, and I could think of nowhere finer to host a long lunch than in the middle of Eumundi," he says.  

"When we say long -- we're not only referring to the long table, but also the length of time to sit and savour an imaginative five course feast that highlights the variety and high quality of produce available on the Sunshine Coast."

Peter says the events will take place three or four times per year and will feature local award-wining chefs using fresh local seasonal ingredients.

Peter will team up with esteemed chef John Somerville (from Harvest Breads) and Swiss chef Hans Tanner for the inaugural LINGER LONGER LUNCH. Mary Bowtle from The Eumundi Food Company will be creating the desserts.

"We have had a great time planning the menu round local, seasonal and unusual ingredients and thinking outside the square in mixing and matching courses," Peter says.

The LINGER LONGER LUNCH starts at 12noon and will take place in the Eumundi CWA Hall Courtyard in Memorial Drive, Eumundi                                                           

The cost is $60 per person -- including a welcome aperitif. BYO wine -- or buy from Eumundi's local cellars. To make a payment or to reserve places at the LINGER LONGER LUNCH, please phone Jan at the Eumundi Historical Association on 5442 7106 (Tues -- Fri)
