Barrack Street Jetty’s Halo restaurant has secured the services of Shane Keighley, the renowned head chef at the Mullaloo Beach Hotel’s Panorama Bar & Restaurant.
Mr Keighley has been with the hotel since it was established a few years ago, helping to put the beachfront venue on the culinary map.
He has won numerous cooking awards and briefly became a celebrity chef when he was selected by the Perth contestants to run the kitchen in the second series of Channel Seven’s now defunct reality TV show, My Restaurant Rules.
Halo owner Lynn Wolkowinski says she has scored somewhat of a coup in securing the services of Mr Keighley, who she says left Panorama to head back in to the world of fine dining. Mr Keighley is a regular finalist in global cooking competitions and was selected to compete in the World Association of Chefs Society global chef competition in Dubai last year after winning the regional final.
Lamont’s in East Perth is hosting its popular ‘Dinner on the Dock’ event, which is a sight to be seen. Tables stretch from the front of riverside restaurant right up the boardwalk, with guests enjoying a night of sensational food cooked by Kate Lamont and her team. Of course, with the restaurateur also operating a winery, there will be plenty of good plonk on offer. The Dinner on the Dock was a sellout last year. This year’s event is scheduled for Friday February 29.
Those who have resolved to know their wine a bit better this year should take note of the new term to start at Perth’s local wine school – the Wine Education Centre.
Operated by the Wine Industry of WA the WEC hosts a variety of courses, and first term starts on February 4.
Courses range from beginners to the world of wine tasting, through to classes for experienced wine lovers keen to explore new wines and styles. Course enrolments are made directly with the Wine Education Centre and discounts are available for large groups, as well as those from the trade.
