A convivial Chefs’ Table celebration led by Emirates One&Only Wolgan Valley and The Escarpment Group’s Darleys restaurant, will headline this year’s Leura Harvest Festival.
Honouring sustainable living in the Blue Mountains, the festival on 5 May 2019, the Chefs’ Table event by Plate Up Blue Mountains will showcase the region’s acclaimed executive chefs and their signature dishes.
The all-day event features executive chefs, Roy McVeigh from The Escarpment Group’s Darleys restaurant, Nancy Kinchela from Emirates One&Only Wolgan Valley, and Petrina Kerr from Palette Dining.
Visitors can also experience wine and cheese tasting by Dryridge Estate and the Carrington Cellars & Deli, as well as an indulgent dessert by internationally acclaimed chocolatier, Jodie Van Der Velden of Josophan’s Fine Chocolates.
Plate Up Blue Mountains Chair, Pam Seaborn, said the Leura Harvest Festival presented the community with a unique opportunity to engage with some of the best chefs in Australia from our region.
“Our best chefs are attracting visitors from around the world to the Blue Mountains and now everyone has a remarkable opportunity to experience their signature dishes and food philosophy,” Ms Seaborn said.
Organised by the Leura Village Association, the 6th annual event has local wine and apple cider, herbs and spices, and organic produce across 70 stalls.
The festival will again culminate in a cake procession down Leura Mall followed by a free feast from the entries judged at Josophan’s Great Australian Chocolate Cake Competition.
Sponsored by The Escarpment Group, the festival also features the Great Blue Mountains Jam Competition, solar-powered vehicles, repurposed clothing, art, homewares, and organic beauty products.
