The Perth Films – My Perth

Howdy folks, Happy Friday!

It’s the end of the working week so sit back, relax and watch the last in the series of four short films all about the food and drink scene in Perth. This time I’m taken on a trip from the ocean to the city with food writer and blogger Whitney Ng.

Starting the day at Leighton Beach over eggs and coffee I learn about the breakfast culture in Perth, before heading to the city and an appreciation for how Perth does fine dining, with a relaxed al fresco lunch.

En route we stop off at the suburb of West Leederville to discover the meaning of the often used term “hidden gem”.

Originally from Singapore but now based in Perth, Whitney covers her food experiences in the City and further afield to the Eastern States of Australia and Asia on her blog

Look out for Whitneys guest post on my blog next week!

The Perth Films – Freo Craft Beer

Hello there Taste Master fans, it’s Friday so that can only mean one thing……film time!

In the third of four short films all about Perth, I’m taken on a craft beer crawl of Fremantle by local brewer Brendan Varis.

Brendan is the head brewer and owner of Feral Brewing Co, one of Australia’s top craft breweries. Their award-winning beers started out life in the Swan Valley just outside Perth, and the original Brewpub still stands on the site, producing quality craft beers.

Fremantle is seen by many as the home of craft brewing in Australia and Brendan sets out to give me a taste of where it began and where it is today. From just a small handful in the 1980s, there are now over 40 breweries in Western Australia and over 200 in Australia.

Fremantle is a port city with an alternative vibe, filled with art and live music. Within walking distance there’s an array of craft beer pubs, brew pubs and breweries, serving up great beer and food to boot. I really enjoyed making this one!

Here’s how we got on…


The Perth Films – Eat Perth

Howdy folks, it’s Friday Film time again!

In the second of four short films all about Perth, I’m taken on a roving food tour of the city by Perth local and food fanatic Laura Moseley.

Laura is the Food Curator for the Beaufort Street Festival and in recent years has seen a fresh spark enter Perth’s streets. Historic buildings, spaces, corners, and laneways are being reactivated by passionate and creative entrepreneurs. Small bars, cosy bistros and restaurants, late night dining, pop-up shops, street food and farmer’s markets are at the very heart of this change.

Better still, many of these new haunts are showcasing Western Australia’s best fresh, local and seasonal produce.

Together Laura and I explore where old meets new in the city and visit many of her favourite hangouts, meeting some of the people at the heart of Perth’s vibrant food scene along the way.

It’s an extremely busy day of meeting, eating and drinking. Do we make it?! Find out here….
