With Easter just around the corner (literally, like it’s next weekend!), we’ve pulled out all the stops and have a jam-packed weekend planned for you.

From degustation dinners, ladies luncheons, and makeup launches, to food truck festivals, interior design workshops, and a pot-full o’ chili, there are plenty of things to do in Brisbane this weekend.

Ku De Ta Presents Taste Of Paradise | The Euro

One of Asia’s most distinctive and beloved lifestyle destinations, Ku De Ta is renowned for its food. So when we heard head chef, Ben Cross was plating up a six-course menu at The Euro, we had to let you know. Do yourself a favour and don’t miss this.

Underground Food Project | Urbane

A brand new collaboration between two culinary geniuses is about to land in Brisbane. Chefs Phil Marchant and Josh Raine will host a series of pop-up events in established Brisbane businesses that don’t typically serve food. Each event will be unique, with the menu themed to match the characteristics of the venue. Think along the lines of a whiskey-inspired breakfast at a boutique whiskey bar, an American BBQ in a barbershop, or a vegan-tasting menu in a garden centre. Come on down to Small Batch Autumn this Sunday, from 6-10pm, and see what all the fuss is about.

Tuesday 31st
