Producers Lunch Sunshine Coast Hinterland | Maleny

Our next Producers Lunch is going to be fabulous. There is so much awesome produce coming out of this region that Glen has a hard time deciding what to choose. This region includes the Sunshine Coast hinterland region and of course the lush pastures of Maleny famous for it’s rich creamy milk and spectacular views.
We’ve got such a great line up for you.
Trevor of Cedar Street Cheeserie, maker of artisan buffalo cheeses who also plays a good jazz tune on the trumpet (he’s playing at the next Sunday Session). He makes cheese in a traditional way; fresh cheese from pure and unadulterated fresh milk by hand. His choice of milk is buffalo milk from the Mal & Margaret Thompson’s dairy in Witta just 5 minutes down the road from his micro cheeserie in Maleny. His products have picked up Delicious Produce Awards. As a bonus, he’s also going to be playing jazz at the next Sunday Session.
Also coming to speak Les and Marji Nicholls from Sandy Creek Organic Farm and Kim from Hinterland Zucchini flowers, absolutely stunning product and flowering beautifully after all the rain.

Other produce featured on the day from the region:
Green Harvest Seeds ~ we are sprouting some micro herbs for the lunch
Falls farm (veg) ~ Organic veg and beautiful wedding venue for anyone looking for a regional location
Baranbali farm ~ Organically-certified Murray Grey cattle, Wessex Saddleback pigs, Suffolk sheep, rare breed poultry

New Head Chef, New Executive Chef

Matt and Kate Harvey have firmly settled into Wild Canary with many plans underway. The past few months since August, when they took over the lease, has been about consolidation and improving ‘back of house’ like getting the acoustic issues addressed and ramping up the air-conditioning.

Kate and Matt Harvey have run a stable of successful and busy restaurants in Brisbane for two decades, with the kitchen garden, open spaces and room to move they have lots planned.

The first significant change is to elevate Chef Glen Barratt into an Executive Chef role and appoint Blake Mickelbourgh as Head Chef.

Blake has been with us for sometime. He is an accomplished chef and has known and worked with Glen before at Restaurant Two. Born in Chinchilla, he has done stints in Napa Valley California and Vue de Monde in Melbourne, plus he drives a Red FJ 1954 UTE. It’s a fabulous opportunity that maximises the talents of both.

Glen and Blake also share a similar taste and side passion for vintage cars, this compliments their shared philosophy of food. The staff car park is a bit 1950’s!

As Executive Chef, having the time out allows Glen to get into our country regions and down the dusty tracks in search for the best farmers and produce from around South East Queensland. Then bring these produce treasures back to the kitchen. Glen is born for the open road, cruising in his 1950 Black FX Holden, we know these trips are tremendously beneficial for farmers and producers medications from Health Canada Pharmacy not just Wild Canary. They appreciate the on going dialogue and feedback with professionals. We wanted to formally acknowledge this contribution and give him the space and time to do it.

Wild Canary is building a reputation through the Producer Lunch series as a place where Brisbane hospitality can find out about new exciting produce and hear stories direct from the farmers.

Wild Canary is kicking off with a full calendar of Producers Lunches, focusing on the different regions that all have distinct climate, soil and food production culture. Plus launching a new event on Sundays ‘Sunday Sessions‘ a more relaxed family affair and an extension in trading hours to 6pm.

Glen does love a good pastry session, his botanically decorated cakes are an Instagram hit, you will still find him in the kitchen making these beauties when he’s completed another trip down a dusty lane. Cakes are available for pick up for private events or order ahead for any of your special events at the bistro.

Our native bees

If you ever see a tiny little white house in our gardens and wonder what might be living inside, it’s not home to a tropical fairy but a small colony of natives bees. You might spot them silently going about their business in the cooler part of the day, gracefully flying around the kitchen garden.

They produce very little honey compared to European alprazolam online, honey bee, the honey has a dark appearance and a much stronger distinct flavour. One colony may only produce about 1 kg of honey per year.

They are stingless and we are quite fond of having them around. Glen Barratt our chef, often takes close up pics of them for our Instagram feed. Here’s some of the best! Enjoy.

Amazing cakes

Here’s a gallery update of our recent cakes for the cabinet and best alprazolam for special orders.

We love making them… all the edible flowers are picked fresh from the kitchen garden.

If you’d like to make a special order for a cake please find more information here.

Enjoy!
