ANNOUNCEMENT: Wednesday 21 November, 2012

The Margaret River Gourmet Escape team announce that Heston Blumenthal will not be attending this year’s event. This decision is the result of the horrific news that two of his culinary team were tragically killed in a car accident in Hong Kong two days ago. The Margaret River Gourmet Escape team supports Heston's decision at this very sensitive time. Our thoughts are with him and his staff and we extend our deepest condolences to the families and colleagues of those affected.

All Margaret River Gourmet Escape events will take place as scheduled, including the Icon Dinner. The featured chefs both international and national are joining together to ensure every visitor has a wonderful and memorable festival.  We appreciate everyone’s understanding at this time.
