HKABA Qld Chapter Food and Wine Appreciation Dinner 2017
The 6th of July marked yet another fantastic event for HKABA Queensland Chapter’s Food and Wine Appreciation Dinner. Hosted at Golden Lane Restaurant at Sunnybank Plaza, this was a special evening of celebration based around a delicious eight-course degustation, with each dish expertly crafted and precisely paired with one of 7 Australian wines. It was an extraordinary culinary experience with plenty of games and entertainment for guests to enjoy. This has been an outstanding event that has grown substantially from 80 to over 230 guests in a few short years.
Also celebrating their 20th anniversary, HKABA continues to create new business opportunities between local Queensland businesses and Hong Kong and the wider China.
Tonight’s prize pool totalled over $6500 which included return flights to Hong Kong sponsored by Virgin Australia. More so, a lucky guest from each table walked away with a Michelin Guide celebrating 9 years of great recommendations to Hong Kong and Macau.
Of course, this event wouldn’t have been possible without the generosity of the sponsors including event sponsors, Jarressa Wines, Orchid Wine Estates and Virgin Australia. Platinum sponsors were Gadens and HKETO Government of the HKSAR. Additionally, they also had their Major sponsors UQ, Pitcher Partners, Small Business Solutions / TAFE Queensland, Vincents Chartered Accountants. Supporters and sponsors included Invest HK, First Media, Asian Community News, Tuba Media Productions and Brisbane City Council also played a big role in the success of the night.
The event also featured wine master Hugo Martin who brings over 30 years of experience in the hospitality industry and also happens to be the Past President of Restaurant and Catering.
What a way to enjoy an evening with delectable food and Australian fine wine.
