Richardson, who runs the celebrated La Luna restaurant in North Carlton, is a passionate campaigner for fresh food. He has written several books and also appears on the Channel 10 afternoon television show Good Chef Bad Chef.

The Camperdown Foodies Feast dinner, which is a regional umbrella event of the long-running Melbourne Food and Wine Festival, will be held on Friday, March 16.

It will begin with canapés on the lawn at the Camperdown Recreation Reserve and then move indoors to share a spread of many courses, all designed by Richardson using local produce. Richardson said Corangamite had a wonderfully diverse range of quality products which he had enjoyed using to develop the menu.

“I look forward to being there on the night to host the feast and provide entertainment for diners as they enjoy their meals,” he said.

“My passion is meat and I am excited about the lesser known cuts of meat I will introduce guests to as part of the menu.”

The event will be followed by a produce market in the avenue on Saturday, March 17 which will complement the Lakes and Craters Festival and the Terang Country Music Festival.

Mayor Matt Makin said the Foodies’ Feast and market day was a wonderful opportunity to celebrate the area’s emerging food industry.

“It is also great to have a chef of the calibre of Adrian Richardson joining us to showcase our producers at this event,” Cr Makin said.

“There will be entertainment, feasting and lots of fun to be had, an event not to be missed by anyone. The $100 price tag is all inclusive of food, drinks and entertainment.”

Numbers are limited and people can book at the shire.
