The Scenic Rim’s signature event, Eat Local Month, will showcase local producers and flavours through lunches, cooking demonstrations and more.

My Country Escape will host Julie Frost from Mrs Frost’s Kitchen for four country style cooking demonstrations featuring her range of homemade pantry products and some of the Scenic Rim region’s unique seasonal ingredients.

Afterwards, enjoy a flavourful tasting experience of six mini courses that will inspire your own home-cooking adventures with plenty of tips, tricks and take-home recipe notes.
