Chef's tasty treats well received
ANDREW Mirosch cooked up a three-piece meal that was fit for a king at Hervey Bay's Seafood Festival yesterday.
The celebrity chef from Lurleen's Restaurant at Mount Cotton's Sirromet Wines was helped out by eight Urangan High School students at the Tastes of the Bay restaurant.
“It's been a pleasure working with the young people of Hervey Bay. They've exceeded the standard I expected,” he said.
“It would be nice if Hervey Bay's restaurants could serve fresh seafood caught in the area so people would come to Hervey Bay to eat the seafood and not just to see the whales.
“This is my passion - showing people how good their local produce is.
“Elaine Lewthwaite has done an amazing job. Without her and the passion and the effort she has put into it, this festival wouldn't exist.”
The three-course feed served up by Andrew and his team included fresh scallops, prawns and bugs and was complemented by a selection of Sirromet wines.
The restaurant was fully booked for its 11am and 1pm sessions and diners thoroughly enjoyed the food.
