ONE of the nation's leading food writers visited one of Australia's greatest food bowls.

Television chef Dominique Rizzo visited the Lockyer and Brisbane Valley to share her tips and secrets on food writing.

Ms Rizzo stopped at Gatton, Laidley and Esk, where she was greeted by people whose very livelihood is fresh produce.

With the Lockyer and Brisbane Valleys producing some of the country's best fresh produce, Ms Rizzo said she was pleased to be able to visit the areas.

Ms Rizzo visited the towns as part of the Food Tales tour by the Queensland Writers Centre.

"We're here collecting stories. Food Tales is all about encouraging people to tell their stories and food is such a fantastic medium for sharing," she said.

"Whether it's your favourite dish, a great evening or your worst disaster there is always a story from food."
