Margaret River Gourmet Escape 2015 is set to be bigger than ever before, with the announcement of international headline chef, the ‘Godfather of modern cooking’, Marco Pierre White. Marco will take part in the three-day culinary extravaganza, with a full program of events hosted by over 40 of the world’s leading food and wine personalities and showcasing the best of WA and the Margaret River Wine region. Tickets go on sale at midday on Tuesday 28th July (AWST). The 2015 Margaret River gourmet Escape will be held 20 –22 November 2015.
Marco has built an empire of London restaurants and was the youngest chef to win three Michelin stars and this year celebrates the 25th anniversary of his cookbook, White Heat, “the coolest cookbook ever written”. Known for his fiery nature, the famed British chef, author and restaurateur will engage with Margaret River Gourmet Escape’s audience and showcase quintessential produce and wine from the South West.
One of the most anticipated events across the three-day Margaret River Gourmet Escape will see Marco host a Q&A over dinner at the exquisite Vasse Felix winery with his alumni Jock Zonfrillo, Richard Turner and Patrick Spencer. These great chefs will re- create signature dishes that the then young chefs had to produce under Michelin starred pressure from the kitchens of Marco Pierre White’s eponymous restaurants.
From all corners of the world, an incredible and unique coming together of global talent, six of whom are from the *S.Pellegrino World’s 50 Best list will join Marco on the Margaret River stage to inspire and excite guests through a mutual respect of biodiversity and sustainability making their trip to a region rich in these practices.
