Shoppers were in for a treat when visiting Stockland Bundaberg this week, with former head chef of P&O Resorts Tony Ching cooking up a storm at the shopping centre.
The live demonstrations were part of Chinese New Year activities happening all over the region.
Celebrations will continue for the rest of the week with A Taste of China offering Chinese delicacies before a free screening of Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon at the Moncrieff Entertainment Centre on Friday.
Then, a culmination of festivities will come together for a street party starting in Buss Park on Saturday afternoon.
Council's community and cultural services portfolio spokesperson Cr Judy Peters said the events were not to be missed.
“It’s a fantastic time of year, celebrating culture and community and I urge everyone to get involved in all of these events,” Cr Peters said.
Tickets for A Taste of China, to be held at the Moncrieff Entertainment Centre, cost $15 and are now available for purchase.
