OpeningNight@CastleRockBeach-PhotoElementsMargaretRiver-80 copyFood and wine lovers who missed out on first round tickets for the 2018 Margaret River Gourmet Escape presented by Westpac (16-18 Nov) are in luck. Festival organisers today announced a brand new event, as well as additional tickets for several popular events that had sold out, due to overwhelming demand.

Much-loved food identity and festival headliner Nigella Lawson, will host the new Supper with Nigella at Xanadu Wines on Saturday 17 November from 8:30pm – 11:00pm. The event will feature a decadent menu of Nigella’s famous late night eats, Q&A with Kate Langbroek and surprises around every corner, making for an unforgettable evening. Tickets are on sale now for $250 per person (plus booking fee), which includes a pre-signed copy of Nigella’s cookbook, ‘At My Table’.

After attending the event in 2016, Nigella fell in love with both the event and destination, recently describing Margaret River Gourmet Escape as a very special festival and life-enhancing experience. In addition to the new Supper event, she’ll take part in the iconic Westpac Gourmet Beach BBQ (Friday 16 November, Lunch and Dinner), Nigella’s Tea Party at Howard Park Winery (Sunday 18 November), as well as appearances and a book signing at the Gourmet Village at Leeuwin Estate (Saturday 17 and Sunday 18 November).

“I love the Gourmet Escape crowd- it’s like hanging out with warm, like-minded people who create such a joyous and upbeat atmosphere…plus it’s hard to resist the extraordinary combination of outstanding natural beauty, wonderful food and produce and excellent wine,” Nigella said.

Joining Nigella are 45 of the world’s biggest culinary stars including Rick Stein, Skye Gyngell, James Lowe, Julien Royer and Niki Nakayama, as well as Australia’s best culinary talent such as Guy Grossi, Luke Mangan and Guillaume Brahimi who’ll head to Western Australia’s south west to collaborate with the amazing local talent and celebrate the world-class produce of the region.

Tickets are on sale now via Ticketek.
