Urbane’s Alejandro Cancino hosts Real Food Bright Future

Tuesday 9 September 2014: Brisbane's top chef, Urbane's Alejandro Cancino, is combining forces with environmental group, Green Cross Australia, to hold a sexy, sustainable evening of cocktails and canapés on Tuesday 23 September.


Timed to coincide with the lead up to World Food Day, 'Real Food, Bright Futures' will be held at Urbane and will feature a menu created by Cancino using only seasonal food, sourced exclusively from local producers.


Green Cross Australia's Mara Bun said the event is about celebrating the Queensland environment, with special guests including ABC Gardening Australia's Costa Georgiadis, who is passionate about sustainable food and its role in a resilient future.


"We wanted to hold a fun, sexy event to highlight the importance of sharing beautiful, sustainable foods and the impact this can have on our local environment and our future," Mara said.


"Alejandro has a reputation for being one of the best and most sustainable chefs in Brisbane, so we are thrilled to have someone of his calibre behind this creative, stylish and important environmental event," she said.


"There are only 60 tickets available so it's a great opportunity to connect with a small group of like-minded people who are passionate about food and where it comes from, and who want to make a positive difference."


Produce for the event will be provided by local company Food Connect, who deliver seasonal, ecological food direct from local farmers to the south east Queensland community.


All proceeds from from the night will go to Green Cross Australia's 'Green Lane Diary' environmental education project, which works to foster environmental understanding and passion among primary school students across Australia.


This glamorous evening of green will be held at Urbane on Tuesday 23 September, from 6:30pm. There are only 60 tickets available, at $65 per person.
