A community-minded, feel-good festival centred around food, friends, family and music, Gourmet Feast in the Valley is a weekend-long celebration of everything Gourmet Escape stands for, starting with a truck-load of eating and drinking options.
Cooking over fire is going to be one of the weekend’s big themes, not least in the Feast Fire Pit presented by Australian Good Meat which will host some of the hottest names in barbecue. Watch culinary heavyweights such as Marco Pierre-White (UK) and Jess Pryles (Austin, Texas) sear, sizzle and grill over open flames, hosted by London’s party-starter, Christian Stevenson, aka DJ BBQ.
Music will also be a big part of the Gourmet Feast. On Saturday Aussie alt-rock favourites The Rubens will take to the stage, supported by the hugely talented Fergus James, Odette Mercy & Her Soul Atomics and DJ Andrew Levins. Sunday will be more relaxed with singer-songwriter’s Web Rumors, Carla Geneve and Abbe May providing the soundtrack.
Now factor in an epic family program including the queen of childrens’ entertainment, Justine Clark (Sat) and the star of ABC Kids hit show Dirtgirl (Sun).
Joining the inaugural party will be a selection of Perth’s hottest food trucks,winemakers, distillers, crafters, growers, producers, and chefs.
