BOURBONG St played host to 90 guests who were treated to a delectable six-course Sunday Soiree that received a standing ovation following the last bite.

The Regional Table food event, part of Brisbane's Good Food Month, was the initiative of Bundaberg North Burnett Tourism and Amanda and Larry Hinds of Indulge cafe who were determined to showcase the world-class quality of local produce in the region.

"It proves we can pull something like this off in Bundaberg," Mrs Hinds said at the event yesterday.

Among the guests was Queensland Food fellow Alison Alexander who left with a very satisfied palate.

"I think it was just a terrific expose of all the local produce," she said.

"Those of us who have enjoyed it as a first-time event, we are the luckiest people."

Even just the sound of the menu was enough to have mouths watering.

"Grunskies provided the delightful smoked mackerel balanced with Walden finger limes, before outdoing themselves with the scallops and spanner crab," guest Reese Krause said.
