Culinary leaders from all over the globe will come together for 10 extraordinary days this November (8-17) for Western Australia Gourmet Escape presented by Westpac- a unique celebration of the State’s incredible food, wine and produce. International superstars include David Chang (USA), Marco Pierre White (UK), Danny Bowien (USA), Amanda Cohen (USA), Pierre Koffmann (UK), Carlo Cracco (IT), Garima Arora (TH), Ivan Brehm (SG), Selassie Atadika (GH) and many other chefs and wine experts, who will be welcomed by Australia’s brightest stars including Alla Wolf-Tasker AM (VIC), Jock Zonfrillo (SA), Josh Niland (NSW) and Seth James (WA) to name a few.
This year, the dance floor will also be heating up, with the addition of an exciting music program that features chart-topping headliners The Rubens, fresh off their European tour, and indie star, singer-songwriter Fergus James, at the new Gourmet Feast in the Valley event in the Swan Valley.
For the first time, the festival will be held in three regions of Western Australia – the Swan Valley - WA’s oldest wine region located just 25 minutes from Perth CBD; the vibrant capital city Perth; and food and wine hot spot Margaret River – the festival’s spiritual homewhich was just announced as Lonely Planet’s number one destination in Asia-Pacific. The newly expanded festival will offer guests more chances than ever to feast, sip, party and discover their way through a diverse program of more than 50 events.
The adventure will begin in the Swan Valley where food, music and family-friendly entertainment is on the menu, followed by exclusive chef collaborations with visiting chefs in some of Perth’s best restaurants, before heading down south to the Margaret River wine region to celebrate the world-class wine and produce the South-West is famous for.
Pierre White who attended the festival in 2015 and described the experience as ‘life changing,’ will be taking part in a one-off collaboration dinner at Sittella Winery in the Swan Valley, as well as making appearances at the family-friendly festival Gourmet Feast in the Valley.
“Gourmet Escape without question is the greatest food event on earth,” Pierre White said.
