More than 50 international and local culinary stars gathered in Margaret River for this year’s Gourmet Escape held at the iconic event location, Leeuwin Estate. Chefs Rick Stein, Marco Pierre White, Matt Moran, Antonio Carluccio, Matt Preston, George Calombaris, Guillaume Brahimi, just to name a few, were here taking part in cooking demonstrations and sharing their tips and experiences. They also hosted fine dining events throughout the Margaret River region showcasing Western Australian seafood and a wide range of WA produce.
For food lovers it was ‘foodies heaven’.
At the gourmet village food and wine tastings from a range of stall holders, particularly local restaurants, food producers, wineries and breweries, were all offering tempting delights to tantalise the taste buds.
Over the weekend the large crowds also enjoyed live music from a variety of artists.
Unfortunately the photos don’t do justice to the event as my camera battery went flat pretty early into the day…..next year’s Gourmet Escape is already on the calendar.
Wow! Looks like a wonderful event! I’d love it! Sounds like you’re still enjoying that amazing part of Australia!
Yes we are very settled here…there are so many great events down this way.
Could be seen “Over West” in 2016…looks amazing and what about Antonio being there!
They are very organised to get so many renowned chefs here at one time…..amazing!
