2019 Sample Food Festival re-cap

You are here

Perfect spring weather for a full day sampling all the food, produce, markets, demos and entertainment at the annual Sample Food Festival at Bangalow Showgrounds early September.

Attendees were spoilt for choice, with top restaurants offering $5 and $10 tasting plates. The 2019 Golden Fork awards went to Koobideh who took out the best $5 tasting plate for their Persian Meatballs and to Federal Doma Cafe who were awarded best $10 tasting plate for their Wood fire grilled lamb spareribs.

"The biggest thank you to everyone who made the 2019 Sample Food Festival such a wonderful day, our chefs creativity and skill, our passionate producers and stallholders, our phenomenal restaurants, our eager and curious guests, our talented artists, our knowledge sharing workshop facilitators, our talented & tireless entertainers, our friendly and diverse visitors, our kind and patient neighbours, our exceptional designers, our hardworking and supportive suppliers, our tireless team, our generous family and our beautiful friends.
