FASH­ION, life­style and moth­er­hood blog­ger Rayne Em­b­ley vis­ited some of the re­gion’s pro­duc­ers ahead of WA’s Celebrity Sig­na­ture Dish Com­pe­ti­tion on June 4.

Ms Em­b­ley has part­nered with the South­ern Forests Food Coun­cil and The Shore­house chef Ol­lie Gould, who vis­ited the re­gion ear­lier in the month, to rep­re­sent the South­ern Forests Re­gion in the com­pe­ti­tion.

Dur­ing her visit, Ms Em­b­ley vis­ited CharCol Springs, The Truf­fle and Wine Co and Ch­est­nut Grove.

“Ms Em­b­ley de­scribed the re­gion as “sen­sa­tional”.

“The one thing I find about this re­gion is there is pro­duce here that you gen­er­ally can’t get any­where else,” she said.

As part of the com­pe­ti­tion, Ms Em­b­ley and Mr Gould will use truf­fles, from the Truf­fle and Wine Co and marron from Blue Ridge Marron in their dish.

“The rest we’ll keep un­der wraps – just so there’s a lit­tle bit of mys­tery,” she said.

“With the re­gion’s won­der­ful pro­duce hope­fully we’ll blow the com­peti­tors out of the wa­ter.”

The 60-minute cook-off com­mences at 1.30pm and will be held as part of the WA Day Fes­ti­val at El­iz­a­beth Quay.

The event is pre­sented by the De­part­ment of Agri­cul­ture and Food’s ‘Buy West Eat Best’ pro­gram.
