Mr Lopez works at the Gallery of Modern Art (GOMA) Restau- rant in Brisbane as executive chef and uses fresh produce from Hervey Bay in his cuisine. His food philosophy is “fresh, contemporary and local” with his signatu re dishes using native Au st ralian produce like ka nga- roo, emu and the freshest sea- fo od. His ext ensive training in Queensland and ab road has led him to being awarded the title of Citi Ch ef of the Ye ar fo r 2016, and he has also been awarded two “hats” fo r the GOMA Restaurant at the 2016 Brisbane Times Good

Fo od Guide Awards. His demonstrations at the fes- tiva l will share his skills and show home cooks the best way to cook Hervey Bay produce.

Fe st ival co-ordinator Elaine Lewthwa ite said she wa s excited to see people interact with Mr Lopez and get great ideas on how to cook seafood. “Having a high calibre chef at the festiva l will allow fishermen to connect with the chefs and it will champion our products,” she said.
