China chefs to get taste of WA

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

WA Food Am­bas­sador Don Hancey will cook seafood with two Chi­nese chefs to pro­mote West Aus­tralian pro­duce as part of Gourmet Es­cape this week.

The Par­doo Beef Cor­po­ra­tion is host­ing Hong­sheng Chen and Guo­hui Tan for the Gourmet Es­cape and the pair will cook for 100 din­ers at the sec­ond an­nual Au­gusta Seafood Dis­cov­ery Lunch next Fri­day.

Hancey said green lip abalone would be on the menu and was very pop­u­lar with the Asian mar­ket.

“The Chi­nese mar­ket have re­alised WA has some of the strictest health and hy­giene reg­u­la­tions in the world and we’ve got some of the most sus­tain­able fish­eries in the world,” he said.

“So why not buy off fish­er­men who fish sus­tain­ably and value their prod­ucts?”

Hancey said the vis­it­ing chefs were among 10 he had cooked with at a Shen­zhen din­ner for 354 peo­ple in April where chefs Chen and Tan were made WA Food En­voys.

“These guys will get to see where their prod­ucts are com­ing from,” he said.

Par­doo Beef Cor­po­ra­tion owner Bruce Cheung said he wanted to in­tro­duce China’s tal­ented chefs to local pro­duc­ers in the hope they would take the prod­ucts back to China and show peo­ple how the in­gre­di­ents could be used in Chi­nese cook­ing.­mu­ni­tynews.
