FERVOR AUSTRALIAN POP-UP DINING EXPERIENCE
WA Day Long Weekend
2-3 June 2017
We are literally jumping out of our skins with excitement on being able to present you with this incredible experience!
Held on the WA Day long weekend, Friday 2 June and Saturday 3 June 2017, it’s got to be the quintessential WA experience and most unique way to celebrate our extraordinary state.
If you’ve not heard of Fervor, take some time to learn a little about them. They are taking Western Australia by storm with their innovative culinary expeditions, merging their passion for creating divine food in spectacular locations using locally sourced produce.
Led by executive chef, Paul Iskov, Fervor was established with the aim of providing a “culinary experience you can’t get anywhere else”. Well, this just screamed location perfection for the Mackerel Islands, and we are super proud to be collaborating with the crew in June on Thevenard Island.
This special offer is a rare one, jam-packed with value and not to be missed. Join us and the Fervor team where you’ll experience beautiful food crafted right before your eyes in the pristine surrounds of the Island. Enjoy wines and beer throughout dinner and stay overnight in our super comfy accommodation, awaken to soak up the calming island vibe.
The dinner comprises of about 6 courses – the menu is created closer to the dinner date as they use as much local and foraged ingredients as possible (yes, this will include seafood from the Mackerel Islands region). If you visit the Fervor homepage and scroll down, you’ll see a selection of the foraged ingredients regularly used in their creations.
We recommend securing a spot as soon as possible, seats are limited and this is sure to be an unforgettable experience.
