Audi Gourmet Escape BBQ Margaret River

Audi Gourmet Escape BBQ is one of the highlights of 2014 Margaret River Gourmet Escape. The dinner BBQ was held at Castle Bay Beach, Dunsborough, Western Australia (near Margaret River). I was invited to join the Chef Wan Margaret River Tour by Tourism Western Australia. Together with me was media friends from Malaysia.

The dinner’s main sponsor was Audi and the dinner cost A$200 per person. It was a beach side BBQ dinner with unlimited free flow of wine. Guests needed to pre book the dinner and it was sold out.

The Audi Gourmet Beach BBQ was hosted by Anna Gare and award winning celebrity chef, Dan Hong.

Watched her on TV so many times and finally met her in person. She is Anna Gare, you probably remember her hosting the Australia Masterchef Junior TV series. She is a friendly and humble lady.

This is how it looks like when the sky turned dark. We love whole setup of this dinner. The music is right, the weather is cooling and most important of all, the food was good.

I had dozens of scallops and a few glasses of wine and beer.

Chef Wan enjoyed this dinner very much and he loved the whole concept of having BBQ dinner by the beach. Thus, he hopes to see such event hosted in Malaysia one day as he was impressed with success of Western Australia Gourmet Escape 2014.
