Top produce is pick of crop
WA food ambassador Don Hancey will plate up entrees and desserts for this Sunday’s Perth Royal Show President’s Dinner at the Claremont Showground.
Mr Hancey will use Harvey marinated goat cheese, Guinea Grove extra virgin olive oil from Gingin, Nail Brewing stout and chocolate from Fre- mantle Chocolate and the Margaret River Chocolate Company.
The businesses won inaugural Premium Produce Awards at the 2013 Perth Royal Show.
“The Premium Produce Awards are about promoting WA produce made by a lot of individuals from Kununurra to Esperance,” Mr Hancey said.
“It’s about showcasing what WA is really good at and giving people who make the produce a bit of a highlight.”
Mr Hancey will make a ricotta and goat cheese tart topped with asparagus, with panna cotta for dessert.
City Beach doctor Joe Kosterich said goat cheese was a good alternative for people who wanted to reduce their dairy intake or were dairy intolerant.“There’s also lots of colours on this…the more colours the better it’s going to be for you,” he said.
“You don’t want to overdo it but that form of dessert is fine to eat.”
