Margaret River Gourmet Escape – discounted ticket offer

October 17, 2012 · 4 comments

Spring, it is sprung! Well, it is trying. The spring slinky is not quite at perfectly-down-the-stairs mode, but rather down-a-couple-of-steps-and-then-you-have-to-nudge-it-again mode.

Come late November, I am sure our summer clothes will have shed their musty winter smell and we’ll be well into the swing of bragging about our enormous zucchini plants on Facebook (there’s a terrible double entendre opportunity here, but I thought it was too low hanging a fruit to even bother with, and then got into a terrible mind-loop of double entendres about low hanging fruit). We’ll be looking down for double gees instead of up for overprotective magpies, and may have begun wondering if life round these parts is really worth the nights lying underneath wet towels with old pedestal fans taunting us with their buzzes and clicks.

Sometimes the only thing to do is escape to cooler climes. As luck would have it, the Margaret River Gourmet Escape is happening over 22-25 November 2012. Pack the cheezels and bust out a new mix tape, it’s time for a road trip.

Who needs stretchy pants when you can overindulge in a bikini? ……aaaand a sarong to hide your shame.

There will be enough visiting international and domestic chefs to inspire the giggling schoolgirl in all of us. To scratch the brûléed surface, I’m talking the likes of Heston Blumenthal, René Redzepi, David Chang, Tetsuya Wakuda, Peter Kuruvita, Neil Perry, Kylie Kwong and Hadleigh Troy.

There are also a number of visiting wine experts and food critics, including AA Gill, whose publicity photo I must share with you. When he’s not critiquing food, he’s solving crime. In the Bahamas. With his mystical beads of truth.

Most of the action will be going down over the weekend of 24-25 November, within the Gourmet Village located at Leeuwin Estate Winery. As luck would have it, I have some mystical beads of my own that allow you to purchase 2 tickets for the Gourmet Village for Sunday 25th at a discounted rate of $50 for 2 tickets (instead of the usual price of $37 each, saving you $24).

To take advantage of this offer, please click on this Ticketek link , select 25 November from the drop-down box, and then “GET TICKETS”.

I accept no responsibility for swoon related injuries or Cheezel-finger on the trip down.

It’s a massive time of year for jaunts away, I am finding! Rest assured I am jealous of your upcoming travels, and I shall eat my way through the Gourmet Village on your behalf :)

Why thank you, you are so thoughtful! Can’t wait to read about your endeavours down there.
