RENOWNED chef and Melbourne culinary icon Jacques Reymond will again tie on the apron to headline the Apollo Bay Seafood Festival next weekend.
The multi-Chef Hatted talent will treat festival attendees to a 45-minute cooking demonstration featuring a range of fresh, locally caught and produced ingredients.
Mr Reymond has achieved respect and recognition worldwide for his innovative cuisine, reaching the pinnacle of his career with his 80th chef’s hat, and continues to embark on groundbreaking culinary adventures.
Mr Reymond said he’s looking forward to showcasing Apollo Bay as a leading seafood destination.
“Between the sea breeze, waves and beaches, we will enjoy exploring and tasting the exceptional produce of this beautiful region,” he said.
Colac Otway Shire mayor Frank Buchanan said he was thrilled to welcome such an extraordinary talent back to the festival.
“The audience was so captivated by his stage presence, sense of humour and of course, delicious, fresh seafood that we can’t wait to see what he has in store for us next,” he said.
