Top Taste of Par­adise

Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - FRONT PAGE -

THE in­nau­gu­ral Taste of Par­adise was a hit with food lovers from all over, with over 2000 peo­ple mak­ing their way to mar­ket park for a day of food, glo­ri­ous food.

Or­gan­iser Reina Pa­trick said the new­est event of Car­ni­vale was suc­ces­ful, ‘‘be­yond ex­pec­ta­tions’’, ce­ment­ing the fu­ture of the fun event in many more Car­ni­vales to come.

‘‘It was fab­u­lous and also suc­cess­ful for the stall hold­ers who said it was worth­while both fi­nan­cially and from a mar­ket­ing per­spec­tive to be in­volved,’’ she said.

‘‘The feed­back has been hugely pos­i­tive from guests and ev­ery in­volved and the stage per­for­mances were amaz­ing.’’

My Kitchen Rules con­tes­tants, last year’s win­ning team mem­ber Leigh Sex­ton from South Aus­tralia and pop­u­lar Townsville sol­dier David Hop­good bat­tled it out on stage for a celebrity cook-off.

Celebrity chef Ben O’Donoghue pre­sented a cook­ing demon­stra­tion on the day, along with fa­mous ex­ec­u­tive chefs from across Port Dou­glas and Cairns and lo­cal pro­duc­ers.
