Prior to hitting the kitchens, a group of chefs will be able to join a Paddock Tour in Carnarvon, hosted by knowledgable locals, where they will get special access to the plantations to see up close what goes into growing and producing top quality food. 

Newcomer to the region, Chef Chase Weber of the highly popular venue The Standard in Perth, is looking forward to heading north to cook with some of the amazing produce from the region, along with meeting the growers to discuss current and upcoming crops that they will be producing. 

“This will be my first time being part of the Long Table Lunch and I can’t wait to cook with some of Western Australia’s best chefs in such a beautiful setting,” said Chase. 

Gascoyne Food Council spokesperson Doriana Mangiili says the Gascoyne Food Festival is not your average festival experience. “For starters our events are at least 900 kilometres from Perth which means we are not only a long way away, but also in another climate!”

“The festival has been proudly hosting Western Australian chefs for many years, from the up and comers to some of the finest talent the state has to offer. So when you buy a ticket to our events, you are not only supporting our agricultural and tourism industry, but also getting a unique chance to enjoy food prepared by a team of WA’s best chefs who would not otherwise be working together,” she said. 

“Not to mention the stunning landscape and warm weather you also get to experience when you visit the region,” she added.
