Ah May, the month when we’re officially on the downhill slide into winter and the scantily clad poolside hangs are temporarily switched out for fully clothed and cozy catch ups. Living in this beautiful part of the world, we only have cooler weather for a blink-and-you-miss-it snippet of time, so seize the moment coz it’s seriously just that – a moment! Treat yo’self to a cute new jacket, enjoy your makeup actually staying on your face, and lock in some fun at places which embrace the change of season. The Star Gold Coast is your one stop shop for winter-friendly entertainment and trust us – it’s all that and some!

Wine & Cheese Evening
If there was ever a match more perfect than Bennifer, this is it. The ultimate first winter warmer event of the season, Garden Kitchen & Bar invites us all to gather at sunset with mulled wine and firepits on Thursday 2nd June for an indulgent food and wine experience on The Lawn – and we accept! This all-inclusive event features wine stalls and tastings from a variety of premium local and international wineries – think rosé, chardonnay, sparkling, gris, pinot noir, shiraz and more, all paired to perfection with a selection of cheeses, charcuterie and roaming canapes. Taste your way through locally and imported cheese, served with quince paste, falwasser, lavosh, and fresh and dried fruit. Feast on San Danielle prosciutto and tartufo salami individually served with pickled figs, giardiniera and artisan bread, plus cured meats, pickled vegetables and olives with grana Padano. And when you’re looking for more lining in that stomach, there’s Milly Hill lamb cutlets wrapped in vine leaves with cumin spiced yogurt, Parmigiano Reggiano risotto with fresh chives, and truffled mac n cheese to soak up the grapes. We. Are. So. There.

There’s even a live performance from ‘Mr Entertainment’ GC himself, Danny Faifai. This legend knows how to get a crowd in dance-mode, playing all your fave high energy hits and flexing his redonkulously impressive vocal range. Tickets to this 2 hour bottomless event are $120pp and can be purchased here.

An Italian long lunch prosecoo-nd to none!

What do the Italians do on a Saturday afternoon? Pretty sure they get together with their famiglia and friends, whip up some epic eats (#LongLiveTheCarb) and if there are bubbles involved, I bet they’re there in a pro-secco. We are not Alfredo to admit that we heart all things Italian, especially a long lunch fuelled with mouth-watering Italian cuisine. So, when we heard Cucina Vivo at The Star Gold Coast are set to host a Dal Zotto Prosecco Long Lunch, words could not express how excited we were.

This exclusive eat-and-bubbles-a-thon is taking place on Saturday 28th May, so if you have anything planned, cancel it immediately coz the FOMO factor is real here. For $95 per person, you’ll be perched in prime position overlooking the pristine pool whilst indulging in a 3-course share style Italian degustation, and a 2.5-hour Dal Zotto beverage package. Dal Zotto is King Valley winery’s flagship prosecco, and Dal Zotto Pucino is its little sister and folks, she has inherited the family wow factor. With hints of apple and pear, she brings out the best in the array of carefully curated dishes.

Let the journey begin with a selection of authentic antipasti, including house made pesto, olives, buffalo mozzarella, lemon-scented goats curd and Caprese salami, San Daniele prosciutto, and more. Then it’s time for something more substantial and the amazing Pizzaiolo Fabio has got your tastebuds sorted. Let’s start from the top-ping coz what kind of person doesn’t like pizza? A weir-dough, that’s who. We’re talking seasonal speciality Pizza made with an incredible recipe handed down from Nonna, and you just know anything endorsed by a Nonna is going to be next level. You’ll also indulge in Semolina Dusted Loligo Squid, and Truffle and Mushroom Arancini which reminds us, why does the mushroom always get invited to the party? Because he’s such a-fungi!

We’re not done though because we still need to unpack dessert and you ‘cannoli’ be happy once you’ve ended with the ultimate drool-worthy handmade finisher. You guessed it, it’s Cannoli, a decadent tubed pastry filled with whipped ricotta, citrus and pistachio, and it’s to dine for!
