More than 300 people packed out the cultural heart of Freo for the sixth annual Long Table Dinner event, a spectacular three-course feast under the stars raising funds for vulnerable people.
The Long Table Dinner was held on Saturday, November 27 in the newly named Walyalup Koort (Formerly Kings Square).
This premier fundraising event was again led by The National Hotel to raise funds for St Patrick’s Community Support Centre (St Pat’s), which supports people that are experiencing homelessness, at risk of homelessness, or, in need.
Talented local Chefs Vincent Lim, Peter Manifis, Caroline Taylor, Amanda Yong, Rohan Park and Simon Reid volunteered their time and expertise to prepare a gourmet three-course meal made from local ingredients donated by Pezzano.
Boutique beers and the best of WA wines were supplied by major sponsors, Little Creatures, accompanying the meal.
Walyalup Koort provided the perfect backdrop, for another great line-up of artists including CircusWA and party band Oats Supply.
Fremantle Octopus donated over 300kg of their premium steam-cooked Octopus, which where then masterfully marinated in Chef Vincent Lim’s special marinate that had guests tastebuds tingling.
In what was a truly special night for a fantastic initiative Fremantle Octopus was very proud to be involved and look forward to next years dinner.
