Celebrity Chef

Ben O’Donoghue

The Moree on a Plate Committee is thrilled to announce that our chef for 2018 is Ben O’Donoghue. Celebrity Chef, television presenter, author and brand ambassador, Ben has worked in some of the world’s top restaurants, such as London’s famous River Cafe and alongside world class chef’s, such as Jamie Oliver.
Four wonderful seasons of cooking series ’Surfing the Menu’ alongside Curtis Stone catapulted Ben into an Australian household name, and he has since authored four cookbooks and owns three award winning Brisbane restaurant and retail fronts – Billykart Kitchen, Billykart West End and Billykart Provisions.
Don’t miss your chance to see Ben live in action at next year’s Moree on a Plate Food and Wine Festival, Saturday, May 12, 2018.

Kids Entertainment

Bubble Muffin

Popular children’s healthy eating advocate, Kevin Starow will be bringing  ‘Bubble Muffin’ back to this year’s Festival. He plans to entertain and educate children through his quirky, fun and interactive cooking demonstrations, teaching children on the benefits of healthy eating.

Demonstration times are 11.15am – 11.45am, 12.15pm – 12.45pm & 1.15pm – 1.45pm.

Blokes on the BBQ

Due to the popularity of our BBQ Cook Off, we are once again giving all the blokes in the district the chance to prove their culinary skills on the BBQ. Local teams or individuals will battle it out with the tongs to decide once and for all who really is Moree’s BBQ King for 2018. The competition is looking fierce this year with teams already committed and busy preparing their menus for the day. Barbies fire up at 2pm.


Moree on a Plate is excited to host over 45 amazing producers at this year’s festival. With local produce on display from all over the region festival goers are assured of going home satisfied!

Live Entertainment

Moree talent will continue to be on show at this year’s Festival with Hoi Polloi keeping the crowds enthralled and dancing throughout the day with their fabulous tunes. We are excited also to have The String Section return to the Festival to entertain the crowds with their original sounds.

Kids Korner

Always a highlight for the little ones, this year Kids Korner will include a fun themed photo booth, craft stations, face painting and much, much more to keep the little ones entertained.
