Margaret River Gourmet Escape welcomed over 50 chefs to celebrate the region’s food and wine
“Combined with the 50th anniversary of the Margaret River Wine Region there’s been plenty to celebrate,” said event director Katrina King.
“We had an increase in ticket sales on last year and we’ve exceeded the 19,000 capacity we had in 2016, which was a record attendance for the festival. A massive thanks to all the local producers and their teams who have worked tirelessly across the week to make it so memorable, and to our event partners for making it possible. We can’t wait to do it again next year.”
Australian celebrity chef Curtis Stone was joined by more than 50 the world’s leading food and wine personalities for the four-day festival, which this year celebrated the wine region’s 50th anniversary with a record number of events.
“I had an absolutely brilliant time in Margaret River,” Stone said. “It’s a testament to the region that this truly outstanding event continues to attract the very best international culinary talent. It’s a world class event that needs to be on everyone’s bucket list.”
