Kim McCosker

Meet Kim McCosker, not only is she one of the festival's chef headliners, but the creative genius behind Australia’s massively popular 4 Ingredients cookbooks. After leaving her corporate career to raise her three sons, Kim discovered a new passion: simplifying kitchen life. From that first cookbook, she has since authored over 30 books, a TV show aired in 22 countries, a cookware range, and an iApp!

Pearly Sprinkles

You may recognise this shimmering star from Season 2 of the Netflix series Zumbo's Just Desserts. Pearly is a Cake-trepreneur, author, inventor, and cake decorator. She's a proud and vibrant advocate of practicing mindfulness, especially through the use of cooking and baking. On a mission to put smiles on faces, Pearly makes delicious treats and educates on anxiety and mental health management techniques; often at the same time!

DJ Cutloose

DJ Cutloose, also known as Trent Wildman, has carved out a unique niche with his Cut & Cook BBQ show, a fusion of his love for cooking and music. This laid-back, informal cooking show captures the essence of a house party, with Trent talking viewers through his recipes amidst a lively backdrop of banter and music. As he skillfully manoeuvres through the world of house, RnB, hiphop, and other genres, Trent simultaneously cooks up mouth-watering BBQ dishes, culminating in a presentation that's just as much about good company as it is about good food. Catch him at the Moreton Bay Food and Wine Festival, where he will bring his unique flavours and sounds to the festival crowd.

Aunty Dale

By providing a platform to develop, market and distribute Aboriginal products, My Dilly Bag empowers communities to maintain their traditions, creates new income streams and provides a positive landscape for future generations.

Ada Daher

When Ada Daher cooks her traditional Lebanese and Middle Eastern fare she is not just giving you food on a plate, it is food made with love, following traditional Lebanese and Middle Eastern recipes handed down by her mother Catherina, an accomplished cook in her own right, using fresh and simple ingredients.

Ada, a resident of Brisbane in Queensland, always had a love of sharing her Lebanese heritage with her family and friends. One way she did that was through her wonderful cooking of homemade Lebanese meals that she was well known for. She was born in northern Lebanon and was raised on large orchards consisting of organic vegetables, legumes and fruit trees; her father made ouzo, grew olives for making olive oil and fished three to four times a week. Ada has many wonderful memories of her early years in Lebanon. At the age of ten, Ada migrated to Sydney with her eight siblings and parents.

Learning has played an important part in Ada’s development and career. Over the years Ada has been building a broad range of skills in cooking, teaching, business, marketing, writing and art which has enabled her to develop a well-rounded perspective of life and through these experiences has been able to generate new ideas and ways of doing things."
