PORT Dou­glas is fast be­com­ing a food­ies’ par­adise thanks to the fresh pro­duce and wealthy vis­i­tors, says celebrity chef Adrian Richard­son.

The TV chef, who was in Port Dou­glas last week, says high-end guests de­mand high qual­ity meals and Port Dou­glas has the right pro­duce to de­liver.

“You’ve got multi-mil­lion dol­lar houses and the peo­ple that live and stay in those houses de­mand good food,” he said.

“You get a lot of Mel­bourne, Syd­ney and Bris­bane peo­ple and they all want to eat well.

“I think Port Dou­glas is start­ing to open up. It’s not just about play­ing golf and fish­ing, it’s a lot about en­joy­ing meal time.”

Port Dou­glas has be­come a con­tender for top spot on Mr Richard­son’s most vis­ited list. He was in Port Dou­glas last year for the three-day Taste Port Dou­glas food and wine fes­ti­val and will re­turn in Au­gust with 20 other tal­ented chefs from across the coun­try.

“Up here you need to cook a dif­fer­ent way.

“Lighten up the meals with lots of lime juice, fresh herbs and zingy flavours, so when you’re eat­ing it’s not too heavy,” he said.
