QAGOMA Members recently enjoyed a relaxed afternoon appreciating the art of food and wine matching with QAGOMA Executive Chef Josue Lopez and David Bone of Cuttings Wine.
Through the six pairings inspired by the seasonal GOMA Restaurant menu, members were given an exclusive taste tour through the Australian, Australia, New Zealand, Spain and back again.
“I moved back to Brisbane from the US several months ago. This was my first membership event and it was a marriage of my passions – art and wine. I didn’t know what to expect, but I’ve found a really diverse crowd of interesting, well-travelled people. I can’t wait for the next one!’”– David
