Part of our busy-ness in Spring was due to preparations for the small part we got to play in the Restaurant Australia campaign. This Tourism Australia initiative saw over 80 food influencers – chefs, bloggers, journalists etc – from around the world descend on Australia in November. Visiting all states we had a number of these influencers tour regional NSW including the South Coast.
We helped host French foodie, Anne Anne Latillade fom the blog Papilles et Pupilles and also helped with the locations selected for Chinese TV program ‘Follow The Master’ with celebrity chef Yifan Liu. Both dined at Wharf Rd in Nowra, with Anne also visiting Salvatore’s Smokehouse to try our smoked south coast oysters, and then South Coast Providores; while Yifan’s crew filmed at Schottlander’s Wagyu and sampled milk and gelato at The Pines, Kiama.
