No junk food at this Junkyard Feast
The Junkyard Feast at Wilsons Machinery in Torbay in WA's south was one of the big hits of the 2016 Taste Great Southern Festival.

The unforgettable feast in the festival's most unique setting is sure to be another big hit this year.

Effervescent WA celebrity chef Anna Gare, with guest chefs David Coomer (Fuyu), Scott Brannigan (Bread in Common) and Guy Jeffreys (Millbrook Winery), will take to the barbecues in the rustic surrounds of Wilsons Machinery.

It promises to be an eclectic evening with ancient tractors and old machinery providing the setting for a barbecue smorgasbord.

Anna Gare's husband Luc Longley and Ian Wilson built an enormous barbecue from a crane last year which will again be put to good use for the 2017 celebration.

The menu is likely to feature WAMMCO lamb, Wagin quail, pork, beef, chicken and seafood including oysters and marron, but will essentially be what's on the market in the region in the week before the feast.

Artwork on display at the junkyard will also be for sale on the evening.

Guests will be presented with a gourmet banquet straight from the flames of the giant barbecue.

The Junkyard Feast will be an indulgence of the senses, matching fantastic flavours and fine wines in a junkyard setting surrounded by old treasured relics.

Taste Great Southern event organiser Richard Campbell said the feast will be an event that will last in people's memories.

Guests can go along to the feast either in a group or individually.

Bookings can be made for tables of six, eight or 10 people. Bookings for 10 people get the 10th person free.

Tickets for the feast which cost $250 each are only available for pre-purchase. Transport is also available from Albany and Denmark for $35 per person.

Taste Great Southern features more than 40 different events throughout the region and runs from March 23 to April 9.
