to the very first issue of Brisbane Panache Magazine. As a born and bred Brisbane girl it has been a dream of mine to release a magazine showcasing what the amazing city of Brisbane has to offer. Brisbane Panache is just that, a comprehensive insert highlighting a suburb each issue to our existing Gold Coast reader. This inaugural issue focuses on Paddington, a suburb close to my heart as I spent many years working here as a teenager in my familyâ€™s restaurant, Gambaroâ€™s. This issue also coincides with my favourite event of the year, the famous Caxton Street Seafood and Wine Festival on May 5. Brisbane Panache may be small but we have ambitious plans for it to one day stand on its own. I hope you enjoy this issue and that it inspires you to visit this quaint yet lively suburb to explore the many delights it has to offer. Please do get in touch to let us know your feedback.
Enjoy, Maria Gambaro, Publisher.
