If you're a Brisbanite with a healthy appetite, there's only one place to be this week. Take your rumbling stomach and its yearning for something scrumptious down to James Street, and fill it with tasty treats.
From July 30 to August 1, the New Farm precinct becomes a foodie wonderland for the fourth year running, once again highlighting the gastronomic delights of the area. That includes devouring delicious dishes and drinks, of course, regardless of what kind of food, beverage or event takes your fancy.
Whether you want to learn to whip up Thai or Italian meals like the masters, shop for edible artisanal creations, or let some cinema cookery wash over you, all your culinary dreams are catered for. You an also sample the street's signature concoctions, enjoy some beer, burgers and beats, or get into the swing of things at a laneway party. If you like your epicurean fun on the chilled side, then head to the urban picnic or enjoy a tipple in the beer garden. Just because it's a food and wine trail doesn't mean you have to get caught up in the hustle and bustle. In fact, we recommend the same approach to eating, drinking and being merry: savouring the moment.
