Winterfeast International event tasteful
THE wet winter weather didn't hold back the wows at the Winterfeast's International Tastes yesterday.
The Sunrise Rotary event was all about savouring international flavours from around the world while including Bundaberg produce.
Event helper Tim Sayre said it was a successful day which had a good turnout despite the weather.
"International Taste had everything from wines, cuisine and culture," he said.
"There was entertainment which included the German Ompa band, which was fantastic, to the Calypso band and jazz and Spanish guitar."
He said there was something for everyone who turned up and a highlight included Big T from a previous year's X Factor.
Mr Sayre said it was great to see the amount of local produce being used in each dish also.
"We have such an experience of food here in Bundy," Mr Sayre said.
"There was plates from Asia, Dutch pancakes, gelato and dumplings.
"Each dish had at least one local ingredient and some dishes were only made from local produce - so it's really great to see."
Sunrise Rotary club president Steve Ford said earlier nothing was going to stop the unique event and he hit he nail on the head.
"Rain, hail or shine, International Taste is on," Mr Ford said.
"And while everybody has been closely watching the weather, everybody is excited to be coming and can't wait to perform or serve up their mouth-watering treats."
Mr Sayre said he was glad to see the community had come together and supported unique events like this in the area even after a wet weekend was assumed.
