Plating up WA applauds the best of Western Australian produce showcasing inspiring dishes at a variety of venues.
An initiative of the State Government’s, Buy West Eat Best program, Plating Up WA runs for the month of June around the state. Each restaurant presents a hero dish featuring the best from Western Australian farmers and producers.
Our hospitality sector has done it tough over the last few years and this is a wonderful way to support them and our local producers.
Across the state 31 venues are taking part. They are featuring fresh seafood, seasonal fruit and vegetables, truffles and premium locally farmed meats.
The significant economic and social contribution that our WA food and beverage industry makes will be celebrated through these amazing dishes loaded with local ingredients.
From casual to fine dining, food trucks to wineries, Banh Mi to grazing boards, you can find mouth-watering options at price points to suit all tastes.
Plating Up WA encourages local patrons to book a table with participating venues which are showcasing a hero WA dish that best demonstrates the state’s great winter ingredients. Whether it’s breakfast, lunch or dinner, the chefs creatively plate up in support of our local producers.
