Some of the world’s best chefs descended on Margaret River in late November for the inaugural Gourmet Escape food and wine event. All in all, it turned out to be a great success and placed the region’s outstanding wine and food produce squarely in the international spotlight.
A series of dinners were staged at regional wineries and restaurants and Pierro played a role by supplying our 2009 Chardonnay for the Heston Blumenthal Icon Dinner at Voyager Estate. Three legendary Sydney chefs, Tetsuya Wakuda, Neil Perry and Peter Gilmore, prepared the menu for the exclusive banquet.
Our chardonnay was matched with the first course – Poached WA Crayfish in Vanilla with Braised Witlof, Tarragon and Caviar Cream. The dish was prepared by Tetsuya, a long-time admirer of our flagship white.
Chefs Peter Gilmore (Quay), Neil Perry (Rockpool) and Tetsuya Wakuda (Tetsuya’s) helped prepare the dinner
