Our resident ‘food and Wine’ authority Sophie Mibus visited Brisbane recently to run two special networking functions at Urbane restaurant and Esquire. Gastronomy lovers, writers and passionate foodies were treated to a presentation by Le Cordon Bleu alumni and current student of the program Tawnya Bahr from Tawnya Bahr Food Consulting. Guests were also able to sample fine food and wine prepared by Chef’s at both locations whose philosophy of sustainability and locally sourced ingredients is a key trend in Australian dining at the moment. Environmental impact and waste and innovation in the support of quality local producers was also on the menu, with attendees able to listen to industry professionals share their stories and experiences.
