The Swan Valley will play host again to the Gourmet Feast
This experience is going to be for your senses - for eating and enjoying the food, tunes and partaking in a great deal of fun in a weekend-long celebration at our lovely area in Sandalford Estate. This event will be from 9th to 10th November 2019 from 11.00 am and you can buy your tickets at this link. The address for Sandalford Wines is 3210 W Swan Road, Caversham.
You'll come for the food – where cooking over fire is the name of the game. Here the hosts/chefs will be bringing on the best food and serving it to you!
Their internationally renowned chefs like Marco Pierre White (UK), Jess Pryles (Austin, Texas) will invent and re-invent their fabulous foods. These foods are going to sizzle, cook and grilled over flames at the Feast Fire Pit presented by Australian Good Meat. As well as all that, there will be people like the London party-starter Christian Stevenson (aka DJ BBQ) as a host.
Marco is fashioned as a modern chef and is well known as a restauranteur and television personality. He has been cooking in the UK for some 30 years or so and is thought to be one of the better people who invents and makes this unique cooking scene.
Not only did Marco do all this but he has also started the careers of many of the well-known cooks including people Gordon Ramsay, Heston Blumenthal and Jason Atherton. These chefs have trained under Marco and learnt such valuable lessons.
Marco started at the age of 17 in London and then at a later date went to work with Albert and Michel Roux at Le Gavroche. He then went on to work with Raymond Blanc and Pierre Koffman, both renowned for their French cooking advances. Marco went on to open his own restaurant, and the story continues from there!
With the 50th UK-based venue just around the corner, Marco has just opened the first of an exciting new brand called Koffmann & Mr White's, which is an English and French Brasserie created with his former mentor Pierre Koffmann. Marco is also taking his philosophy on dining out overseas and will see his first two international restaurants opening in Abu Dhabi in 2019.
The Feast Fire Pit This will be presented By Australian Good Meat and if "flame-ticked meat, master butchery" as well as music, sounds like your idea of a party, then make sure that you go to the fire pit to get your fill of food.
This Pit will have the greatest barbecue with Marco Pierre White and Jess Pryles of Texas. They will sizzle and grill our local beef and lamb cuts over the open fires and with that, you can have your favourite local wine!
You'll come for the music – This is going to be showcased by people such as The Rubens, and also supported by Fergus James. He will have a mixture of real local legends right amongst these two days. Some of these include:
Odette Mercy & Her Soul Atomics
DJ Andrew Levins, who will provide tunes right between acts.
These will start off Saturday with the most exciting kids' disco arrangements you will hear.
The program will be the Rubens on Saturday with Fergus James, Dirtgirl & Mother Earth, Odette Mercy & Her Soul Atomics, and DJ Andrew Levins.
On Sunday, there will be highlighted music by Abbe May with Justine Clarke, Web Rumors, Carla Geneve, and DJ Andrew Levins.
FOR THE FAMILY This event is the ultimate festival for the entire family with lots of entertainment to keep everyone happy.
Parents can eat at the food trucks and go to the Main Stage to listen to the likes of ABC Star Dirtgirl & Mother Earth, as well as Play School presenter, Justine Clarke.
There is also going to be a special garden for smaller children. Here they will be able to grow their own herbs, make some compost from some kitchen scraps, and even build a worm farm and more.
There will be locally made Swan Valley workshop series which are hands-on events and fun for everyone has an attempt at doing them.
