Brisbane Convention & Exhibition Centre serves up Queensland on a plate

Brisbane Convention & Exhibition Centre has launched its new menu with celebrated executive chef David Pugh.

With a focus on what Pugh describes as “honest home grown food”, the fresh flavours of Queensland produce are the heroes of the Centre’s new menu, from ethically caught fresh prawns from the Sunshine Coast to Darling Downs wagyu.

The new menu has also been curated to accommodate current changes to food service regulations while upholding the Centre’s reputation for culinary excellence.

“The Darling Downs, in particular the Lockyer Valley, is one of the top 10 most fertile farming areas in the world,” said Pugh.

“It is Australia and Asia’s vegetable and salad bowl in the cooler months and beef from this region is amongst the most highly prized on the planet.”

General manager Bob O’Keeffe said the Centre’s new menu is driven by ethical, seasonal and regional values.

“We are committed to showcasing Queensland produce, giving assurance to visitors to the Centre of a uniquely authentic taste of local cuisine,” he said.

The launch of the menu coincides with the appointment of the Centre as an #eatqld partner.
