The foodie festival will include events throughout the Great Southern featuring the likes of legendary British chef Marco Pierre White.
If a really memorable meal is about the setting in which it’s eaten as well as the food itself, then this year’s Taste Great Southern festival promises to serve up some unforgettable dining experiences.
There'll be everything from seafood and ales aboard the Albany’s historic Brig Amity to an Italian feast in the carpark opposite Albany’s Liberte and local produce prepared Asian-fusion style by Indonesian chef Chandra Yudasswara at a secret location.
Many events will take full advantage of the Great Southern’s stunning scenery, whether it’s a Great Southern “food-and-wine journey” at scenic Singlefile Wines near Denmark, a long-table dinner featuring native produce at Albany’s Middleton Beach or a five-course degustation lunch with views over Shoal Bay at the Princess Royal Sailing Club.
Guests at this year’s festival, which takes place from March 8-25 in Albany, Denmark, Mt Barker, Porongurup, Frankland River, Katanning, Ongerup and surrounds, include legendary British chef Marco Pierre White, alongside Justine Schofield, Russell Blaikie, David Coomer and others.
The program also includes markets, workshops and sessions covering everything from wine and chocolate pairing to fermentation.
For food lovers who can’t make it down south, there are events in Perth including a Great Southern Wine Dinner at the State Buildings’ Postal Hall and a long-table banquet at Don Tapa in Fremantle.
