The “Great Australian BBQ” menu, created exclusively for the royal visit, was designed to showcase the best of the best and give The Princess Royal a taste of what Queensland has to offer.
Royal ICC Executive Chef, Sean Cummings, said it was all about keeping it local and using only the best ingredients.
“We have so much amazing produce available to us in Queensland so we wanted to centre the menu on this,” Mr Cummings said.
“The carefully designed menu included Australia’s best steak, as voted by top food critiques at our Royal Queensland Food and Wine Show, award-winning cheeses and fresh local seafood… finishing with a twist on classic Australian desserts.”
Only the best was on offer with grilled sunshine coast king prawns marinated in lemon myrtle , roasted eye fillet, Australian cheeses and modern takes on the Australian classics pavlova and lamingtons.
The “Great Australian BBQ” was held under the stars at the Royal ICC’s Plaza where more than 250 people gathered to eat some of Australia’s finest cuisine… and to get a glimpse of HRH, The Princess Royal.
The Royal ICC is currently hosting the 26th Royal Agricultural Society of the Commonwealth (RASC) conference. Held in Queensland for the first time, The Princess Royal attended the conference as President of the RASC, following the RNA winning the rights to host the conference four years ago.
