Pan Pacific Perth hosts a Celebrity Chef cook-off event

Pan Pacific Hotels Group continues partnership with Good Food and Wine Show.

Pan Pacific Perth, for the second consecutive year, is the official hotel partner of 2016 Perth Good Food and Wine Show (Friday 8th July to Sunday 10th July).

To kick-start the 2016 show, Pan Pacific Perth hosted an exclusive VIP, invite only cook-off event on Thursday 7th July with star Chefs Alastair McLeod and Miguel Maestre. TV personality Hayley Thompson took the reins as host of the event, which saw the trio deliver a memorable gourmet experience.

Pan Pacific Perth General Manager, John Kockan, comments, “We are thrilled to continue our partnership with the Good Food and Wine Show and host this exclusive event for our valued, long term partners and clients. Not only did we get to showcase the recent enhancements to the hotel but also our Head Chef Paul Gaspa demonstrated his culinary skills alongside some of the industry’s best. It is the perfect opportunity for our VIP guests to experience our disposition for great food and enjoy a truly unique evening.”

Similar to the theme of Ready, Steady, Cook, Alastair and Miguel headed up two teams with lucky guests picked out from the crowd to assist them. The teams prepared their dishes in the live cooking area whilst guiding guests through their sensational creations. 

But the gourmet adventure didn’t stop there. Not only did guests have an opportunity to vote for their favourite dish from the cook-off, but they also had the pleasure of sampling the dishes in canapé style replicated by the hotel’s kitchen on top of an array of delicious bites served upon their arrival.

The night continued with a special Q&A session with Alastair and Miguel as guests sipped free flowing sparkling wine, beer, wine and soft drinks.
