It’s easier than ever to find and use local produce in your go-to meals these summer holidays thanks to the new Eurobodalla Food Trail.
The food trail brochure – with map and buy-guide – is available in print or online for download, and features provedores from right across the shire. To celebrate the launch, Eurobodalla Council has teamed up with celebrity chef, and almost local, Paul West.
“We’ve filmed eight videos with Paul. The first premieres next Monday,” said Council’s tourism manager Tim Booth.
“In each episode Paul visits local producers to share what they have on offer and then cooks up a storm.”
Paul West now lives in Bermagui and has spent years finding and befriending south coast producers since moving to the region to front River Cottage Australia in 2013. Mr West described Eurobodalla as an unspoilt wonderland with abundant farms.
“If you’re looking for world-class produce, you’ve come to the right place.”
Mr Booth said, “Paul’s recipes make it easy to include top-notch local food while feasting this Christmas”.
Mr Booth said strong Christmas holiday accommodation bookings meant Eurobodalla Food Trail marketing would target visitors already in the region during December and January, “then we’ll push further afield in February and March to attract additional visitors to Eurobodalla”.
Eurobodalla Food Trail videos with Paul West will be released over summer on the @eurobodalla Instagram and Facebook channels. Printed brochures are available from 24 visitor information outlets across Eurobodalla. To find their locations or download a copy of the brochure visit eurobodalla.com.au
The Eurobodalla Food Trail project was supported by an Austrade $100,000 Regional Tourism Bushfire Recovery Grant.
