Fervor are taking Australia by storm with their innovative dining expeditions, merging their passion for creating divine food in spectacular locations using fresh ingredients, locally sourced, foraged, indigenous produce.
Led by executive chef, Paul Iskov, Fervor was established with the aim of providing a “culinary experience you can’t get anywhere else”. We were super proud to be collaborating with the Fervor crew at the Mackerel Islands.
Held on the WA Day long weekend, the Fervor Pop-Up Dining Experience on Thevenard Island was the most unique way to celebrate our extraordinary state.
The dinner comprised of an unforgettable 8-course degustation meal on the beach, under the stars, and included fresh seafood caught from the island’s ocean waters.
Guests got to taste and dine on beautiful food crafted right before their eyes, paired with wines and beer in the pristine surrounds of the island, then a stay overnight in our super comfy accommodation, awakening to soak up the calming island vibe.
“An Australian experience unlike anything you can imagine.”
