Australia’s leading culinary festival is back with an impressive lineup of industry talents like Rick Stein and Maggie Beer.
If you consider yourself a foodie and love attending events like the Good Food & Wine Show, we’d suggest putting the Western Australia Gourmet Escape on your bucket list. Over eight years, the festival has worked its way to becoming Australia’s biggest food and wine festival. It’s known for being held in beautiful locations across WA and for featuring a lineup of internationally acclaimed culinary talent, year after year.
This year, the festival will run from the 17th to the 21st of November and by then, you’ll be well ready to pack your bags and get out of the city. You’ll be heading to iconic locations including Margaret River, Perth, Swan Valley and they’ve even leveled up last year to add Rottnest Island to the location list. Ticket holders will unleash 30 unique foodies experiences alongside the stacked-up talent of Australia’s most loved and respected culinary stars.
Which renowned chefs will headline?
The event will of course feature leading local WA talent including Curtis Stone, Rick Stein, Shannon Martinez, Colin Fassnidge, Matt Stone, Guillaume Brahimi and Guy Grossi. You’ll also get to see icons including Stephanie Alexander and Maggie Beer, as well as watch new talent erupt from Curly Haslam-Coates, Erin Larkin and Samantha Payne.
Natalie O’Brien, Western Australia Gourmet Escape Program Director, said: “Now, more than ever, we’re all craving connection and celebrating the simple pleasures in life that have sustained us over the past 18 months. Gourmet Escape this November gives us all something to look forward to. A celebration of the good things in life – food, wine, culture and connection – with the natural beauty and incredible produce of WA providing the setting for Australia’s brightest culinary stars to shine.”
