THIS weekend Moree Secondary College will transform into a food lovers heaven.
There will be a plethora of mouth-watering meals, delicious temptations and entertainment aplenty on offer as the community celebrates Moree on a Plate’s 10th anniversary.
And the little ones are also in for a treat, with a wide variety of children’s entertainment organised for the ever-popular ‘Kids Korner’.
One of the highlights of the festival this year is the inclusion of healthy food advocates ‘Bubble Muffin’, a nationally acclaimed, Melbourne duo performing live cooking demonstrations for youngsters.
Moree on a Plate president, Mary-Kate McCormick, said the interactive, live demonstrations were energetic and fun, and a great way to promote healthy eating to children.
“We are so excited to have Bubble Muffin perform at Moree on a Plate and teaching our little ones about healthy eating habits in a really interactive and fun form that children respond to,” Mrs McCormick said.
As usual, Kids Korner will be a highlight for the little ones, with everything from an animal farm, plaster painting, jumping castle and face painting to keep the children entertained.
Showcasing over 30 producers from across the North West, the event is primarily an opportunity to promote and celebrate regional producers but has evolved over the past 10 years into a multi-dimensional community event.
“The beauty about Moree on a Plate is that it is a true family day out,” Mrs McCormick said.
“There is something for everyone and it’s a great way to bring the community together, and enjoy a day out.”
Celebrity chef Alastair McLeod will also be a highlight of the day, performing a number of live cooking demonstrations and sharing his wealth of knowledge with the audience.
Acclaimed singer, Jess Holland will also add to the atmosphere, debuting hits from her new album, Whole Lot to Say, while the Moree town band and ukulele group, The String Section will also wow the crowds.
Mrs McCormick said this year local, male masterchefs would also have the opportunity to show off their skills at the inaugural ‘Blokes on the BBQ’ cook-off.
“Teams will battle it out to decide once and for all who is Moree’s barbecue king, with Mitre 10 Moree very generously donating two Weber Q barbecues to the winning duo.”
Moree on a Plate will be held this Saturday, May 3 at the Moree Secondary College, Albert St, Moree.
Entry is $2 and the event runs from 10am until 4pm.
Jess Holland will be performing from 1.30pm, Blokes on the BBQ begins at 2.30pm and Alastair McLeod and Bubble Muffin will each hold a number of live demonstrations throughout the day.
