Most food festivals offer a variety of dishes, ranging from snacks to mains to treats. Sweet As, Brisbane's new dessert fest, will too — as long as you're fine with meringues, marshmallows and macarons as appetisers, cakes and doughnuts for a main, and ice cream, sorbet and gelato to wrap it all up.
That's just our suggested order. With all of the above on offer — plus everything from brownies and waffles to cheese and chocolate — there's no right or wrong way to work your way through the menu. All of the treats will be served up by a range of the city's best dessert-makers, with The World Food Markets overseeing the event. And while this isn't Brisbane's first sweet-filled festival, or even its first this year, no one is complaining.
With the festival running from 10am until 3pm on June 3 at Musgrave Park, that means dessert is on the menu for a late brekkie, brunch, morning tea and afternoon tea — and if you opt for to stick around for a few of those meals, there'll be no judgement. Also on offer: non-sugary street food, pop-up bars and live entertainment. Just nab your $5 (plus booking fee) ticket in advance, as they're likely to get snapped up fast.
