Re­gion has ap­petite for bush tucker

Pilbara News - - News - Tom Zaun­mayr

Fer­vor has re­leased its tour dates through the North West for 2016, with mul­ti­ple stopovers in Kar­ratha on the menu.

The gourmet bush tucker de­gus­ta­tion spe­cial­ists made their first trip to the Pil­bara in 2015 and hailed it a suc­cess, host­ing mul­ti­ple sell­out din­ners at Hear­son’s Cove and Parabur­doo.

Head chef Paul Iskov said guests to their din­ners could ex­pect com­pletely dif­fer­ent menus to last year’s trip.

“We will use sim­i­lar pro­teins though, so there will be emu and kan­ga­roo, some na­tive le­mon grass, wat­tle­seed and some stuff from around the coast as well,” he said.

“I know from last year there was some great stuff like bush onions, bush pas­sion­fruit, the fresh­wa­ter mus­sels, oys­ters, hope­fully some kan­ga­roo.

“The City of Kar­ratha have been fan­tas­tic to us, they’re re­ally sup­port­ive and we just hope we can de­liver a great meal again.”

Mr Iskov said his team had been “blown away” by their in­volve­ment in the Kar­i­jini Ex­pe­ri­ence last week, where they held their reg­u­lar de­gus­ta­tion din­ners and catered for the Culi­nary Ex­pe­ri­ence and Moun­rise Lounge VIP area.

The trav­el­ling res­tau­rant will be in Parabur­doo this week­end be­fore head­ing north to the Kim­ber­ley re­gion.

Two dates have been set for Kar­ratha so far, Fri­day, June 3, and Mon­day, June 6, but Mr Iskov said there was po­ten­tial to add more dates if de­mand was there.
