A new culinary adventure to showcase best of the region is set for November 22 through 25, 2012: Margaret River Gourmet Escape.
Some of the world’s best chefs, culinary and wine critics and celebrities attend the four-day event.
Participating chefs include Heston Blumenthal, the owner of the famous Fat Duck restaurant in the United Kingdom; Rene Redzepi from Denmark, whose restaurant Noma was recently ranked the world’s number one for the third time; Australian favorite Justin North of Becasse in Sydney, local star Matt Stone of Greenhouse in Perth and Dany Angove of Leeuwin Estate Winery in Margaret River.
