Im­mer­sion the best pol­icy at Show

Western Suburbs Weekly - - Food - with Belinda Cipri­ano

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.

■ Com­mu­nity News­pa­per Group has one VIP dou­ble pass and 15 run­ner-up dou­ble gen­eral ad­mis­sion tick­ets to give away to Good Food and Wine Show at Perth Convention and Ex­hi­bi­tion Cen­tre.
