Covid-what? Brisbane’s annual Citi-sponsored Good Food Month is back with a vengeance, returning this July and reminding locals and visitors why the city’s known for fab feeds.

With everyone turning out for the event, think Queensland’s own Alanna Sapwell brings her pop-up restaurant Esmay back to Brisbane after touring around the country; Ben Williamson’s fire-fuelled Agnes will be welcoming Melbourne’s own master of fire, Dave Verheul of hatted Embla into the kitchen for the perfect fiery feast; Louis Tikaram is set to mentor some of the region’s brightest up-and-coming chefs as they put on a fine four-course lunch at Howard Smith Wharves; Shane Delia joins forces with fellow hatted chef, Adam Wolfers at Gerard’s Bistro for an inspiring Middle Eastern feast; and Shannon Martinez will pay tribute to the vibrant Tel Aviv dining scene with a tantalising plant-based menu at Za Za Ta Bar & Kitchen.
