Margaret River Gourmet Escape announces star-studded program

The Margaret River Gourmet Escape has announced its star-studded Gourmet Village festival hub program.

Fanciful gastro-chemist Heston Blumenthal, Danish chef and co-owner of Noma (that's the best restaurant in the world) René Redzepi, New York ramen master David Chang, and Australia's own Peter Gilmore, Matt Moran and Neil Perry are among the list of over 25 national and international culinary icons showcasing their talents, spilling their secrets and hosting panel discussions and masterclasses over the November weekend. 

Program highlights include Blumenthal performing his kitchen wizardry live on both days, a Q&A with Redzepi over a glass of wine at the intimate Chef's Table setting, and something for the kids: Masterchef Junior Live gives the little ones a chance to get their hands dirty with the likes of Masterchef celebrity judge George Calombaris.

Head to the official website for the full gamut of gourmet activities planned for the Gourmet Village.  

Margaret River Gourmet Escape takes over Leeuwin Estate in Western Australia on November 24-25. Tickets are on sale now.
