Published on

The Real Food Festival is a fantastic celebration of the wonderful variety of food that Sunshine Coast producers, manufacturers and restaurants have to offer, and a brilliant way to talk, taste and buy from them.

The various events, demonstrations, discussions and other activities throughout the weekend mean that the Festival has something for everyone and is a great way for people to support the best of Sunshine Coast regional food.

  • The real home-cooked meal – a typical meal is now freshly prepared and shared with the whole family; dinner is now a time to catch up and connect. We’re cooking more, and enjoying it! Despite our busy daily schedules more of us are choosing to find the time and energy to cook from scratch – and we are loving it! Fresh food is best - we prefer to cook with fresh foods and are increasingly avoiding products with additives, instead searching for the freshest possible. Health is our motivator - the vast majority of Australian households are dealing with some kind of health issue and this affects the way we shop, cook and eat. Healthy food is a healthy investment - we recognise the link between what we eat and our health, both now and into the future, and seek to use healthy food as a prevention strategy. Where are we heading? Our search for ‘wellness’ sees us turning away from rampant consumption, in a search for authenticity.
