Feed body and soul with a Buddhist banquet

Celebrate the holiest time in the Thai calendar, Buddha Day (Visakha Puja), with a seven course Thai Buddhist banquet at Spicers Tamarind Retreat in Australia’s Sunshine Coast hinterland.

Feed your body and soul with a banquet in The Tamarind restaurant and outdoor pavilion while a traditional blessing is performed by monks, all set in a lush rainforest setting. The banquet is on Friday , May 20 and is $A55 per person or $A90 per person with matching wines.

Thai chef Paul Blain

Developed by renowned Thai chef, Paul Blain the menu includes Asian inspired canapés, crispy fried rice noodles coated in caramelised meats of pork, chicken and prawn “mee grob” with pickled garlic and bean shoots, rich red coconut curry “Gaeng Dang Gai” of chicken, pumpkin, tomato and red shallots with Thai basil, and ginger creme brulee with coconut tuile and tropical fruits.

Set near a waterfall in a stunning rainforest 3km from Maleny, Spicers Tamarind is an intimately unique retreat where Thai style meets the tranquility of the Australian bush. Spicers Tamarind Retreat’s Thaistyle carries on to its special events, each of which align with a traditional Thai celebration and feature sumptuous gourmet banquets.
