The luxurious Sofitel Noosa Pacific Resort, now home to celebrity chef Peter Kuruvita’s restaurant, Noosa Beach House, is celebrating the premiere of his exciting new television series on SBS with the launch of a fresh, seasonal new menu for guests, inspired by the show.
Peter Kuruvita’s Coastal Kitchen is a celebration of Peter’s recent Noosa sea change, and his passion for sourcing and cooking with local produce from the Sunshine Coast and hinterland region.
In the six-week series (which commenced 10 November), Peter Kuruvita heads out to meet passionate producers to discover more about the fresh local produce that has made the region one of the most exciting new foodie destinations in Australia.
Back in the kitchen, Peter then transforms rich, local ingredients like spanner crabs, Mooloolaba prawns, macadamia nuts, tropical fruits, heirloom vegetables, native herbs and spices and more into a delightful array of dishes for any occasion.
Similarly, Peter’s new Noosa Beach House menu at Sofitel Noosa Pacific Resort is inspired by his Coastal Kitchen experience, transferring many of the Sunshine Cast feasts and dining ideas from screens to guests’ tables to offer Sofitel guests a true taste of the region.
Peter says, “I am so lucky to call the Sunshine Coast home and excited to be able to share the fresh flavours of the local produce on our menu at Noosa Beach House. Tropical and coastal, like my usual playground of Sri Lanka and the Pacific, the range of produce is diverse and the producers are passionate about the environment and sustainability. Combine this with the spices and techniques of my travels and we have something for everyone to enjoy.”
