The best produce Western Australia has to offer will be showcased in a series of food events at Perth’s new Yagan Square, to promote the buy local message.
The ‘Taste of WA’ is an initiative of the State Government’s Buy West Eat Best program, and will roll out as a 12-month tasting program.
The events will focus on four different regions and include cooking demonstrations and tastings with local chefs, producers and food businesses featuring the region’s produce, with each timed to coincide with a significant regional food and agriculture event.
Produce from the Peel region will kick it off on Sunday, March 11 with seafood including mullet and blue swimmer crab, Borrello and Mundella dairy and local sweet treats on the menu.
Subsequent events will be held in June featuring the Gascoyne; September for the Swan Valley and surrounds; and the South-West region in November. All the events will be held in the new Yagan Square precinct.
The promotion of WA produce builds on the Buy West Eat Best Good Choice campaign launched last year to raise awareness with consumers about the benefits of buying local.
