HAMP­TONS City Beach head chef Matt Nebel is en­cour­ag­ing food­ies to make the trek north dur­ing the win­ter as part of the Gas­coyne Food Fes­ti­val.

Nebel who has pre­vi­ously vis­ited the re­gion for the Gas­coyne Desert Race said he was thrilled to take part in the event and visit the unique lo­ca­tion.

“It is a priv­i­lege to visit the re­gion again this time to rep­re­sent the cook­ing in­dus­try and get­ting hands on with our unique lo­cal pro­duce,” he said.

“You see the heart and vi­sion of the pro­duc­ers and what ded­i­ca­tion is put into their prod­uct, from farm to plate, it’s a story.”

Vis­i­tors to the fes­ti­val will be able to en­joy a range of de­li­cious events from the fam­ily-friendly Bar­be­cue on the Beach in Carnar­von, the Long Ta­ble Lunch at Bent­wa­ters Plan­ta­tion and the free food sam­pling at the Gas­coyne Grow­ers Mar­kets.

“Perth peo­ple should visit to be­come part of that story and sup­port lo­cal agri­cul­ture,” he said.

Gas­coyne Food Coun­cil chief ex­ec­u­tive Do­ri­ana Mangili agreed with Nebel and said the fes­ti­val pro­vided a great op­por­tu­nity to show­case the re­gion’s in­cred­i­ble pro­duce.

“If you are look­ing for a win­ter es­cape, or al­ready head­ing up north, make sure to stop by and en­joy one of our amaz­ing events and while you are here make sure to stock up on our fresh sunkissed pro­duce too,” she said.
