MKR dinner a huge success
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.
SUCCESS: Valerie with Michelle Whitehead from the Gemfields.
