What a hectic month March has been. Lots of food tastings, events, dinners and talks, everything seems to have flown by in a blink. While work and other commitments have restricted the number of events possible, I have enjoyed those I did get to.
One of the highlights was the Twilight Hawker Markets that got better and better with each passing week. Many thanks and congratulations should go to the City of Perth and organisers for taking on board the comments and suggestions put forward by various bloggers and attendees and improving the markets each time. It was such a festive and fun atmosphere and of course the allure of sampling cuisines from all over the world in a small space. There’s been talk about extending the markets beyond Eat Drink Perth. Hopefully, something will come of it. Perhaps a monthly or bi-monthly event.
The other was, in my mind, a perfect way to cap off my personal March. An evening of gastronomic heaven shared with some close friends and new friends. Dubbed Amusé Project Mayhem by Apex of Blue Apocalypse, our table of foodlovers/foodbloggers, partners and friends were seduced, titilated and satisfied by an astounding display of colour, flavour and creativity by the young chefs and service team at Restaurant Amusé. Matched with impeccable service by the front of house staff, it has set for me, the standard at which fine dining should be.
We shan’t talk about the incident with the Pho.
I hope that next year’s festival is even bigger and better than this one. Given the input by various local bloggers and the City of Perth’s receptiveness, I am optimistic.
Here are my memories of Eat Drink Perth 2011.
