Deliciously Different with Dee Den

Image source: IN Noosa Magazine

The Dee Den x Sunshine & Sons lunch was an affair to remember with wild cocktails matched to Dee Den’s deliciously different cuisine. John Caruso devoured the delightful flavours on offer.

Local produce with creative flair was on show when Dee Den and Sunshine & Sons came together to present a feast that was deliciously different! We knew this lunch was never going to be boring and it did not disappoint! 

The creative juices were flowing not only from the Dee Den kitchen headed up by Head Chef Mike Meesuwan but also at the distillery where brand ambassador Kayan Marcolini created some outrageously-named but delightfully delicious cocktails.

The only question on everyone’s lips was ‘when can we do this again?!’ While the Long Lunch was a one-time event, you can still enjoy a feast of the very best Dee Den has to offer with its Chef Banquet, which caters to multiple dietary requirements, including Coeliacs. Just add your own choice of cocktails!
