Taste of Spain as chef goes global

Western Suburbs Weekly - - Food -

CELEBRITY chef Miguel Maestre will tan­talise the taste­buds of Perth food­ies as part of Global Gas­tron­omy at Gar­den City Shop­ping Cen­tre from Au­gust 13 to 16.

The Spa­niard will jet into Perth and round out the line-up that in­cludes Masterchef win­ner Adam Liaw, Iron Chef win­ner Herb Faust and pizza king Theo Kaloger­a­cos, who will all cook over the four-day fes­ti­val.

Maestre said he was look­ing for­ward to get­ting back to Perth af­ter a whirl­wind year, which in­cluded trav­el­ling to Dubai as part of tele­vi­sion show The Liv­ing Room and tak­ing part in the Good Food and Wine Show across the coun­try.

He said food­ies would be in for a treat and his food demon­stra­tion would fea­ture his Span­ish per­son­al­ity.

“My cook­ing demon­stra­tion will show­case my sig­na­ture dishes: paella a la maestre and chur­ros con cho­co­late,” Maestre said.

“I will be cook­ing an Aussie clas­sic break­fast - the best corn and zuc­chini frit­ters - and have a few tricks for your bar­be­cue and how to make fresh pasta.”

Maestre, whose love of cook­ing comes from his child­hood, said it was a great re­ward to cre­ate some­thing de­li­cious and make some­one happy.

He listed his paella as his sig­na­ture dish.

“I love cook­ing paella as it al­ways brings the fam­ily and friends to­gether; its colour­ful, healthy, tasty and Span­ish,” he said.

“It re­ally de­fines me as a chef and what I love about cook­ing.

“Keep it sim­ple, use fresh in­gre­di­ents and don’t try and copy any­one else; stay true to your­self.”

Gar­den City re­tail­ers will join in on the culi­nary ex­pe­ri­ence as they of­fer cus­tomers a vast se­lec­tion of de­li­cious sam­ples across the four-day pe­riod, in­clud­ing mac­arons, French wine and cheese, sushi and dim sum.

Shop­pers will also ex­pe­ri­ence au­then­tic en­ter­tain­ment from around the world as the Gar­den City Mar­ket Place is trans­formed into a sea of colour and mu­sic with cul­tural en­ter­tain­ment from across the globe.
