MKR din­ner a huge suc­cess

Central Queensland News - - NEWS | WELCOME -

THE Gem­fields was treated to an el­e­gant night of fine din­ing last week­end, with this year’s My Kitchen Rules run­ner-up Va­lerie Fer­di­nands cook­ing up a three-course meal for 60 lucky din­ers.

Long-time friend and Anakie Gem­fields Ho­tel Mo­tel and Cafe co-owner Wendy McFar­lane said the evening went re­ally well and they re­ceived noth­ing but pos­i­tive feed­back.

“It was a fan­tas­tic night, the food was great and we re­ceived noth­ing but pos­i­tive feed­back from the din­ers,” Mrs McFar­lane said.

“We were fully sold out, we had over 50 peo­ple in at­ten­dance and had to start turn­ing peo­ple away.

“I think we could have taken 10 more though, it was a shame.”

The din­ner, a set course, in­cluded food Ms Fer­di­nands cooked for the MKR fi­nal, which fea­tured samosas and a curry.

“The food was very well re­ceived,” Mrs McFar­lane said.

“I was a bit con­cerned it might be too hot but it wasn’t.

“My high­light of the night was the en­tree, which was the chicken samosa, one of the fi­nal dishes fea­tured on MKR.”

Mrs McFar­lane will hold a bare­foot bowls night for Halloween tonight on the green at the Anakie Pub.
