Immersion the best policy at Show
THERE will be Champagne on ice and freshly shucked oysters on demand as part of the Champagne Taittinger Lounge and Oyster Bar debut at this year’s Good Food and Wine Show (GFWS) from July 14 -16.
The event, featuring hundreds of first-time local exhibitors, will see patrons immersing themselves in all things food and wine, and engaging with Australia’s favourite celebrity chefs while they share their tips and tricks live on stage.
Guests wanting to enjoy a glass of bubbles can relax over a glass of Champagne or for a more prolonged experience, try the decadent High Tea.
Australian distributor representative for Mcwilliam’s Wine Group Sarah Nichols said they were looking forward to bringing the new exhibition to the Perth show.
“We’ve been a great supporter of the event for many years and have shared a number of our brands with visitors to the show, including Mcwilliam’s Wines,” she said.
“We’ve found that the Good Food and Wine Show is perfect for sharing our collection of wines to such a varied audience – from the consummate foodie to those looking for a day out, we feel the show has it all and delivers the experience in a very premium way.
“For 2017, we decided to include Champagne Taittinger in the show, as we feel there is a great opportunity to educate people that Champagne is an amazing wine to enjoy with food.
“We looked at many different pairings that bring the wine to life but decided on oysters, as they showcase the elegance in flavour and structure that Taittinger is so well known for.”
Nichols said Perth people attending the show would be in for a treat and the best way to enjoy it all was to take advantage of everything on offer.
“The beauty of events such as the Good Food and Wine Show is the element of exploration,” she said.
“Enjoying food and wine isn’t just about dining out anymore – it’s a whole wider experience that people are bringing into every part of their lives. Shows and events like these really offer consumers the opportunity to try something new or enjoy what they already love – all under one roof.
“Perth people will love the event for the friendly staff that are willing to share their knowledge and products with visitors but also the opportunity to enjoy the real taste of Australia and the world.”
For those wanting to feel a little fancy and spend the day in style, a Taittinger High Tea is also an option.
Enjoy a flute of Champagne accompanied by a selection of finger sandwiches, savoury canapés, exquisite French pastries and scones, served on an elegant threetiered stand.
In addition to the lounge, a celebrity chef line-up, which includes Matt Moran, cheeky French chef Manu Feildel, Gary Mehigan, Jack Stein and Adam Liaw will see them take to the Good Food Theatre, where guests can watch and learn from live cooking demonstrations.
