The Chefs

Aden Moriarty from Noosa Springs,
Matt Golinski from Peppers
Lisa Mahar from Makepeace Island

They will provide a three-course feast for the senses while you sit back and enjoy CHOCOLAT a most delicious comic fable and a celebration of difference.


CHOCOLAT tells the story of a mysterious young mother, Vianne, who in 1959, arrives at the fictional, repressed French village of Lansquenet-sous-Tannes with her six-year-old daughter and opens La Chocolaterie Maya, a small chocolaterie, across the square from the church. 

No one could have imagined the impact that she and her spirited daughter, Anouk, would have on the community stubbornly rooted in tradition. She and her chocolate quickly begin to influence the lives of the townspeople in very different and interesting ways. One of the first to fall under the spell of Vianne and her confections is

Armande, her elderly, eccentric landlady. Her ability to perceive her customers’ desires and satisfy them with just the right confection, coaxes the villagers to abandon themselves to temptation — just as Lent begins.


Juliette Binoche, as Vianne;
Judi Dench as Armande
Johnny Depp as Roux.

The star of the show is Nick Blake (ex Noma and Wasabi chef) who will create, what some call, a biosphere on a plate, food fresh from nature with wild edibles and locally grown meat or seafood as a 3-course lunch with local wines served at Kin Kin General Store. Optional, is a walk through Kin Kin State School to see their amazing permaculture gardens. 

Just up the road we will stop at Noosa Black Coffee, for a plantation tour. Finally a stop for an amazing sunset drink before heading back to Noosa.

The Slow Food Noosa Trail departs in air-conditioned buses, leaving from Noosa Heads Bus stop, (cnr Noosa Parade and Noosa Drive opposite Noosa Heads Lions Park) at 8.30am promptly, so be early as no latecomers will be included.
