Noosa Library Service invites you to join MasterChef favourite and author, Amina Elshafei, at a luncheon to celebrate International Women’s Day on Sunday the 8th of March, at 11.30am.

Don't miss this opportunity to hear about Amina’s rich and varied life experiences, being on the TV show MasterChef and her long-awaited book Amina’s Home Cooking.

Library officer Rachel Shields is excited about Amina visiting Noosa. “What better way to celebrate this special day than with good food, great friends and hearing the fascinating multicultural story of a successful woman.” she said.

Amina is blessed with a rich family history – her mum is Korean, and her dad is Egyptian. Join her as she takes you on a unique culinary adventure, exploring the best cuisine from both cultures. In her cookbook you'll find recipes for traditional Middle Eastern dishes such as Lamb, Prune and Fig Tagine and Korean staples such as Kimchi, as well as exciting new recipes, such as Sumac-crusted Trout with Heirloom Tomato Salsa and Harissa Chicken.

The luncheon will be held at The Rumphouse in Tewantin where Amina will also be available for book signings. Her new book will be available for purchase on the day, thanks to Annie’s Books on Peregian.

Tickets are $45 per person which includes a sumptuous 2 course luncheon and a glass of wine. “Why not get a group of girlfriends together or take your wife, mother, sister or daughter to celebrate this special day dedicated to women” Rachel said.

Booking and pre-payment is essential. For reservations phone 5329 6555
