Keen appetite for flavour fest
Taste Great Southern is set to waft enticing aromas over the Great Southern as talented chefs make the most of our regional produce. Taste was launched for a Perth audience by Tourism Minister Paul Papalia on Wednesday 21 February, and the program starts in earnest on Sunday 4 March with the Porongurup Wine Festival.
Taste Great Southern runs to 25 March and presents food events at venues across the region, including in Albany, Denmark, Mount Barker, Katanning and Ongerup.
The GSDC is a founding supporter and principal regional partner of Taste, and is supporting the 2018 event with $25,000 of State Government funding, as it did in 2017.
GSDC Chair Ross Thornton said the event drew visitors into the region, which benefits the regional economy, and it complemented other festivals taking place in the Great Southern around the same time.
Taste Great Southern 2018 features over 40 events and more than 20 chefs, including celebrities Marco Pierre White, Justine Schofield and Indonesia’s Chandra Yudasswara.
Full program details are available on the Taste Great Southern website.
