Do you want to feel good about yourself while eating the best food in town? Then join the charitably food conscious for this year’s Celebrity Chef Dinner, ‘Dinner at the Bay’.

An annual charity event, five of the state’s finest chefs will work together to create a lavish five-course menu with profits all going to charity.

This year’s theme is ‘the Orient Express’ and the ballroom at Royal Freshwater Bay Yacht Club will be transformed for the event.

The organisers have garnered the support of WA’s best chefs. Russell Blaikie from Must WineBar will join Paul Medica, head chef from The Globe at the Hilton Perth, local food personality Don Hancey, Clint Nolan from Harvest Restaurant, and Nick Niederberger, pastry chef from Pearl of Highgate.

Local wineries Vase Felix, Swings and Roundabouts, Arlewood and others have also lent their support and will be pouring their premium wines throughout the night. All proceeds are directed to Variety WA and organisers hope to eclipse last year’s total of $26,000 for WA’s sick and disadvantaged children.

The $200 per plate ticket represents excellent value.  Enjoy five of the best courses prepared by five of Perth’s finest chefs, along with magnificent wine from WA wineries.  The event will be held on August 1.

It has been a big week for beer in the west. Not only has Gage Roads signed a new distribution deal, but a new microbrewery has been welcomed into the fold, with Tanglehead Brewing Company opening for trade in Albany last week.

Tanglehead is the first microbrewery to be established in the Great Southern and the first new brewery in the region in more than 70 years.

In other news, Margaret River’s Colonial Brewing Company started moves to float on the share market. Using the name Empire Beer Group, Colonial will also welcome new board members, including former Foster’s executive Mel Ashton and corporate lawyer Phil Lucas. The company plans to raise $10 million needed to buy the business from founder, Ross Smith, but believes nation-wide expansion is the way forward.
