Western Suburbs Weekly - - Business - By DENISE S. CAHILL

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.”
