Taste of the Swan Valley
THE best of the Swan Valley’s produce was on offer in Perth earlier this month. Supported by the State Government’s Buy West Eat Best initiative, the campaign was the third Taste of WA event at Yagan Square to celebrate key food regions. WA food ambassador Don Hancey talked with Houghton Kitchen head chef Herb Faust, slow food chef Vincenzo Velletri, and Noongar Elder and bush food cook Dale Tilbrook. The menu included slowbraised Dandaragan beef with Houghton cabernet jus, an Asian-style glass noodle salad with Lilydale free range chicken breast poached in Swan Valley verdelho, Fini olive oil and lemon myrtle dressing, and a Swan Valley jarrah honey mousse tart with local honey nougat crumb.
