THE in­ter­na­tional culi­nary world is at Townsville chef Cloe Buck­ley’s feet.

The 24- year- old has been cho­sen to rep­re­sent Aus­tralia at the Su­won food and cul­ture fes­ti­val in South Korea in Septem­ber.

Miss Buck­ley will also take part in the Su­won Cook­ing Con­test, a com­pe­ti­tion, de­scribed as a high­light of the fes­ti­val, where chefs are given one hour to pre­pare a dish.

Miss Buck­ley, who is a demi chef at The Ville Re- sort- Casino’s Aqua restau­rant and Spin Cafe is plan­ning to serve up kan­ga­roo cooked in Aus­tralian bush herbs such as lemon myr­tle, fin­ger limes and bush pep­per.

“We will be feed­ing 1000 peo­ple a day and we are rep­re­sent­ing Aus­tralia,” she said. “It is a dream come true.”

Miss Buck­ley said the trip was about com­bin­ing culi­nary ex­per­tise and cul­tural ex­changes while strength­en­ing Townsville’s sis­ter city con­nec­tion to Su­won.

Miss Buck­ley said she and sea­soned restau­rant chef Daniel Peters would travel to­gether and take part in a range of ac­tiv­i­ties de­signed to in­tro­duce South Korea to North Queens­land cui­sine.

The Ville food and bev­er­age man­ager Brent Clark said Miss Buck­ley was one of 34 chefs em­ployed at the casino and ho­tel and he was ex­cited she had been in­vited to the event.

“She will be a great am­bas­sador for The Ville and we wish her well in Septem­ber,” Mr Clark said.
