Cook with Gas

Western Suburbs Weekly - - Food - With Belinda Cipriano

FOOD­IES can in­dulge in the taste of the Gas­coyne, with the Gas­coyne Food Coun­cil show­cas­ing their fresh farm-di­rect pro­duce at Ya­gan Square from Sun­day as part of the Taste of WA event.

Hosted by Buy West Eat Best, the pro­gram will kick off on Sun­day from 11am to 1pm and be em­ceed by WA Food Am­bas­sador Don Hancey, who will fea­ture a sam­pling menu in­clud­ing goat ragu, Sweeter Ba­nana bread, as­para­gus and cap­sicum frit­tata and warm­ing pump­kin and turmeric soup.

The event is one of a se­ries put to­gether to build aware­ness of WA pro­duc­ers and re­mind con­sumers to sup­port and buy lo­cal when­ever pos­si­ble and pro­mote re­gional des­ti­na­tions, with sup­port from the pro­gram’s hos­pi­tal­ity providers.

Hancey said all dishes he was cook­ing would be loaded with fresh Gas­coyne pro­duce.

“It is al­ways a plea­sure to work with Gas­coyne food,” he said.

“The semi-arid trop­i­cal cli­mate is per­fect for range­lands meats, seafood and fresh pro­duce in­clud­ing juicy and flavour­ful toma­toes, crunchy cap­sicums and the sweet­est ba­nanas in Aus­tralia.” Pic­ture: An­drew Ritchie

“I in­vite ev­ery­one in Perth to come down, sam­ple some great Gas­coyne food and sup­port our lo­cal farm­ers.”

In ad­di­tion to Sun­day’s event a Farm Di­rect Popup Mar­ket will also be held from July 1-7, where shop­pers will be able to pick up their favourite fresh sea­sonal pro­duce in prepa­ra­tion for the Gas­coyne Food Fes­ti­val in Au­gust.
