Yarrawonga Chronicle - - Front Page -

Yar­ra­wonga Mul­wala Golf Club Re­sort held their first ever Fam­ily Food Fair over the Easter week­end with the event prov­ing a re­sound­ing suc­cess.

The Fam­ily Food Fair was a mas­ter­mind of the club’s own chefs who cooked up an ar­ray of af­ford­able food op­tions and were able to show some flair and flavour through the menus of­fered on each of the food stands.

The se­lec­tion they pro­vided saw many vis­i­tors re­turn to eat for a fur­ther two and three nights with streams of lo­cals and hol­i­day mak­ers rolling into the event as well as vis­i­tors from around the district.

Paella was a hit on both Fri­day and Satur­day with the dish sell­ing out on both days.

Piz­zas were also an af­ford­able fresh and pop­u­lar choice with over 900 sold over three nights.

Du­lan’s kitchen pumped out plenty with burg­ers, sal­ads and tast­ing plates but his fish taco was de­scribed as ‘divine’.

Na­dine’s Texan BBQ 12-hour slow cooked brisket ended the week­end as the peo­ple’s choice.

As the sun went down the cro­quet lawns un­der festoon lighting pro­vided a fes­ti­val mood with the kids well en­ter­tained in the kids zone and mums and dads able to sit back, re­lax and en­joy the live en­ter­tain­ment.

“It was great to see so many fam­i­lies come and en­joy what was on of­fer,” said YMGCR Pres­i­dent Gil Cun­ning­ham.

“Our chefs cooked up a storm and ev­ery­one I talked to raved about their whole ex­pe­ri­ence; food, en­ter­tain­ment and fun.”

A Hole in One com­pe­ti­tion was also run as part of the event with a 100m tem­po­rary hole set up.

“This gave us the op­por­tu­nity for lo­cal com­mu­nity groups, Mul­wala Pub­lic School, Yar­ra­wonga P-12 and Yar­ra­wonga Health’s Help­ing Hands who col­lec­tively raised al­most $2000 for their causes with golfers and ‘not so’ golfers hav­ing a go,” Gil added.

“We look for­ward to ev­ery­one and more com­ing next year.”

Plenty of chil­dren en­joyed the ac­tiv­i­ties in­clud­ing the face paint­ing.

The bal­loon man was very pop­u­lar with the chil­dren.
