Langley Park will play host to over 10 of Perth’s premiere restaurants each deliver a specially developed menu of tastings size dishes, which aim to showcase and show off the premium and seasonal ingredients available in Western Australia.

Along with buying your ticket you can also pre-purchase ‘Crowns’. Those who have been to the Gourmet Escape will be familiar with Gems, well Crowns are the Taste of Perth equivalent. One Crown equals One Dollar and all the Crowns you buy will be pre-loaded onto a plastic card that can be scanned throughout the venue to make purchase. You can also top up your card at the event.
