Mantarays serves up flavours of Gascoyne
FOOD FESTIVAL Surf and Turf on Sunrise Beach, Sunday, August 13, $130 a person. Visit carnarvon.org.au/ taste/foodfestival.
Mantarays Ningaloo Beach Resort in Exmouth is hosting a Surf and Turf on Sunrise Beach dinner this weekend as part of the Gascoyne Food Festival.
Guests will be treated to an array of gourmet food made from local produce, amid the breathtaking backdrop of Sunrise Beach.
Perth chefs Melissa Palinkas and Peter Manifis will be whipping up delicious meals made from Gascoyne produce.
Mantarays general manager Darren Cossill said the event would be a great way to promote the region.
“I think it’s important to promote regional produce and the region as a whole,” he said. “The chefs get to experience the local produce that they can then bring to their restaurants in Perth.”
The Gascoyne Food Festival, which started on Sunday, will run until Saturday, August 19.
While the festival is based in Carnarvon, it hosts a series of satellite events across the region, including in Exmouth, at Dirk Hartog Island and Mount Augustus.
The festival aims to showcase and celebrate the region’s produce.
Chef Peter Manifis will share the taste of Gascoyne produce with punters at the Gascoyne Food Festival this fortnight.
