Taste of WA – Peel Region

On Sunday, March 11th at Yagan Square was the inaugural Taste of WA event by Buy West Eat Best, featuring delicious produce from the beautiful Peel Region. With thanks to events partners Metropolitan Redevelopment Authority (MRA), City of Mandurah and Peel Development Commission.

It was an excellent opportunity to showcase this region ahead of the 20th anniversary of the Mandurah Crab Fest on March 17th and 18th and they even had City of Mandurah Mayor Rhys Williams in attendance to talk to the crowd and play kitchen hand to the chefs when required.

A solid line up of talented local chefs including Kenny McHardy (Manuka Woodfire Kitchen), Don Hancey (WA’s Food Ambassador) and Jason Hutchens (Red Manna Waterfront Restaurant), donned their whites and prepared some very tasty samples with the Peel produce.

On the menu was:

  • Peel Smoked Mullet, Lemon Myrtle Mayonnaise
  • Peel Blue Swimmer Crab
  • Mundella Yoghurt Cup, Decadent C‘s Fruit and Nut Chocolate
  • Borrello Marinated Fetta, Baked Ricotta, Romano Cheese

It was really encouraging to see how well the debut Taste of WA event was received by the public. The happy crowd in the area who were wandering past, all called in to see what was happening and enjoyed a sample or two (or more…. I myself was pretty hooked on the Borrello marinated fetta), before heading home with a bright green balloon for the littlies and handy tote bags for the big kids.

It was particularly great to see people really enjoy what they were trying and perhaps have found a new favourite, a brand or product they might now keep a special eye out for in stores and that’s fantastic. Very much supporting the buying local message.


The event was very much focused on raising awareness about the complete deliciousness of what is grown and produced in our own back yard. Because seriously we are such a lucky bunch! Alannah MacTiernan, MLC, the Minister for Regional Development; Agriculture and Food was in attendance to give her support to the event also.

I actually had the chance to speak to the Minister and it was very encouraging to hear about the plans for innovation in the agricultural space that the government has planned for the Peel Region. You can learn more about those on the website for the Peel Development Commission.

I’ve included some photos below from the day’s festivities. It was good fun…. good, tasty fun 🙂  There are more events planned for different WA regions throughout the year so keep an eye on the Buy West Eat Best Facebook page for all the details and remember keep an eye out for their logo and know you are supporting our West Aussie farmers every time you buy something proudly wearing the Buy West Eat Best badge. Make that Good Choice.
