Kingaroy BaconFest organisers have announced the dates for the 2021 festival – and the news that celebrity chef Miguel Maestre will be headlining the event.
The annual food festival was cancelled in 2020 due to COVID-19 restrictions, but organisers say they are working hard to ensure next year’s event on August 20-22 is “pigger” than ever.
“They say bacon is the duct tape of the food world, it fixes everything!” Miguel said.
“I can’t wait to visit the beautiful South Burnett in Queensland next August to explore the region’s produce and celebrate all things pig.”
Miguel is co-host of the award-winning lifestyle television series The Living Room and has presented several TV programs including Miguel’s Feast, Miguel’s Tropical Kitchen and Boys Weekend.
Chief Baconeer Kristy Board said she was excited to be welcoming a chef of Miguel’s calibre to Kingaroy.
“(He) is a popular performer at many of Australia’s top foodie events including Regional Flavours in Brisbane and Good Food and Wine Shows in Melbourne, Sydney, Brisbane and Perth,” Kristy said.
