ECOSTUDIO FELLINI HOSTS SPECIAL DAY ON THE GREEN CONCERT TO CELEBRATE MOTHERS
MUDGEERABA’S charming Ecostudio Fellini will celebrate mums all over the Gold Coast, by hosting a special family-friendly food and music festival for Mother’s Day on Sunday 11th May.
A first-ever for the award-winning hinterland wedding and function venue and popular Sunday eatery, Ecostudio’s Mother’s day on the green festival will see families enjoy a special live concert event coupled with a range of delicious lunch options.
Beginning at 1.30pm, the expansive property will echo with the sounds of country tunes, folk pop and smooth jazz tones as The Noll Brothers, Nyssa Berger and Josh Boyd Trio take to the stage for an afternoon of live entertainment.
Families can enjoy one of two admission options, with gates opening at 12.30pm through to 5pm. General admission ticket holders will be treated to a picnic-style concert event, and are encouraged to bring blankets and low-rise chairs to set up and spend the afternoon lazing on the lush grounds.
Wine, beer and soft drinks will be available for purchase, as well as shared platters for two, which stay true to Fellini’s authentic Italian ethos and feature a gourmet antipasto offering of smoked and cured meats, pickled vegetables, variant cheeses and assorted freshly-baked breads ($15). Additional sweet and savoury food options will be sold.
Those looking to spoil their mum, can pre-book VIP table seating at Ecostudio’s ‘Summer House’, where they will be treated to premium views of the concert from their seats on the venue’s split-level, open-air balcony, while they indulge in a mouth-watering two course menu.
The Mother’s Day menu will include an entrée and one of three main course options. Dished up by Fellini’s talented and award-winning head chef Richard Burt, the entrée will be delectable serving of Timballo di Granchi – a creamy timbale of avocado and spanner crab meat, topped with fresh tomato and rocket and drizzled in a citrus mayo.
Main course will offer VIP diners a choice between Chargrilled South Australian Coorong beef tenderloins, served with sautéed asparagus on a bed of potato mash, free range chicken breast, stuffed with mozzarella and sage and wrapped in San Daniele prosciutto, or homemade ravioli filled with fresh ricotta and spinach and served in an authentic tomato and basil sauce.
A separate children’s menu is also available, which offers a choice of gourmet chicken nuggets and fries or crumbed fish and fries, followed by a classic dessert of vanilla bean ice-cream with a rich chocolate topping.
Having always wanted to host an outdoor concert-style event at the venue, Ecostudio Fellini co-owner Carlo Percuoco said the upcoming Mother’s Day festival would offer an enjoyable, laid-back recreative option for families looking to find the perfect way to spoil their mum on her special day.
“We are looking forward to holding the upcoming festival for Mother’s Day and feel it will make for an enjoyable and memorable afternoon of culinary and musical appreciation,” Mr Percuoco said.
“Families can spend the day together enjoying a late lunch, while basking in the autumn sun and listening to good music. We are excited to have country singers and songwriters and brothers of ARIA Chart topper Shannon Noll, The Noll Brothers perform, as well as folk artist Nyssa Berger and jazz musicians Josh Boyd Trio.
“It really will be the perfect option for families looking for something different and to truly escape, unwind and enjoy an afternoon together to celebrate their mum on her special day.”
