Masters of Fare Food Festival at Hamilton Island

The culinary diversity of Hamilton Island will be showcased at the Masters of Fare Food Festival from June 5 to 7.

The three day showcase opens with a poolside Mumm Champagne cocktail party on Friday 5th June at 6pm.

Saturday's offering starts bright and early with the Masters of Fare market in the Resort Centre from 9am until 4pm which features free samples as well as cooking and serving tips from some of the country's top food suppliers.  The market will also operate during the same hours on Sunday.

Two sessions of 'Ready Steady Cook' will be run on Saturday with a final cook off, featuring local talent being held on Sunday.

Midday on a tropical island is generally considered to be a civilised time to enjoy a cocktail, so Suntory will host a cocktail display at 12pm on Sunday and Pernod Ricard will do their presentation on Sunday.  Each display will be fun and interactive and showcase the hottest cocktails of the moment.

Dinner on Saturday night is delicious buffet with wines from the Wild Oats range while the must-do event of the weekend is the Masters of Fare dinner at The Outrigger.  This degustation dinner will feature an array of courses prepared by Suntory, Hamilton Island Conventions, Mariners, Pool Terrace, Beach Club, Beach House, Romano's and qualia.

The majority of events and displays over the Masters of Fare are offered to guests on a complimentary basis, with the exception of the evening functions.  Tickets to the welcome cocktail party are $60.  The buffet on Saturday night is $80 per person and includes wines by Wild Oats.  Tickets for the degustation dinner with matching wines are $180.
