The World’s Best Female Chef of 2017, Ana Ros (Hiša Franko), will return to showcase the flavours of Slovenia at the World Discovery Dinner at Voyager Estate presented by Audi, alongside newly appointed executive chef, Santiago Fernandez. World-renowned wine critic, Jancis Robinson OBE, MW (UK) will lead the conversation on the evening, pouring and discussing an outstanding selection of wines from Voyager Estate and other acclaimed Margaret River wineries.
Another not-to-be missed event is O Sole Mio, the ultimate Italian long-table lunch with Italian Michelin-starred chef, Anthony Genovese (Il Pagliaccio, Rome). Guests will dine among the olive groves of Olio Bello, a spectacular 130 hectare, certified organic property, which produces some of the country’s finest olive oil. Guests can also tour the grounds and olive-pressing facility, taste the olive oils and enjoy a mini masterclass.
Festival first-timer chef, Andrew Wong (A Wong, London) will team up with Andrew Bennett (Lucky Chan’s, Perth) for a brand new Chinese feast event, Gan Bei, in the barrel room of Woodland Winery’s.
