COOKING celebrities Justine Schofield and Anna Gare popped into Denmark’s Rockcliffe Winery Night Market on Friday to show off their culinary skills as part of their Taste Great Southern tour.
Before taking to the stage, the talented ladies caught up with The Weekender for a glass of wine and a giggle or two.
The TV personalities are no stranger to Taste Great Southern; Ms Schofield took part a few years ago and couldn’t resist coming back, and Ms Gare has already participated in the 2018 trail, demonstrating at the Porongurup Wine Festival on the long weekend.
“I absolutely adored it,” Ms Gare said of the recent wine festival.
“It’s a beautiful start to the Taste Great Southern.”
Ms Gare said she was eager to get around to the other Taste events, and get her hands on some of the region’s local produce, including Denmark grass-fed lamb, Peaceful Bay seafood, marron and fresh produce from the Albany Farmer’s Market.
“That’s what I love about the festival, there are so many satellite events,” she said.
“That’s the beauty of the Great Southern; you’re always exploring new places and finding hidden gems.”
Ms Schofield had a busy weekend planned, heading to the Albany Farmer’s Market on Saturday and The Lake House Denmark on Sunday for the cooking and sundowner by the lake events.
“I love this festival,” she said.
“I can really immerse myself in what this place has to offer.”
One of the major events next on the Taste Great Southern menu is the Albany Wine and Food Festival at Eyre Park this Saturday from 11.30am to 5.30pm.
