Good Chef, Bad Chef to feature at Sister Cities Festival

Posted on 2 November 2018

 

Popular television personality ‘Good Chef’ Rosie will be cooking up an international storm at Latrobe City Council’s Sister Cities Festival on Friday 9 November at the Moe Botanical Gardens. Her recipes will feature Chinese and Japanese flavours using locally-sourced produce.

Latrobe City Council’s general manager city development, Gail Gatt, said the festival was a celebration of Latrobe City’s two sister city relationships with Takasago in Japan and Taizhou in China.

“We’ve been hosting this event for a number of years but this is the first time it will be held at Moe. Attracting the Good Chef Bad Chef TV show is a major coup for us – watching cooking demonstrations is always entertaining. ‘Good Chef’ Rosie will use local ingredients to create dishes that reflect both the Chinese and the Japanese cuisine. The ‘Good Chef Bad Chef’ will be in action filming from 3pm, with the festival officially opening at 4pm.

“The whole event is a relaxed celebration of the culture, the traditions, the food and the music of both Japan and China. We have long had a strong relationship with Takasago and Taizhou but we understand that not everyone in our community will have the chance to visit these wonderful cities, so we try to bring a flavour of them right here to Latrobe,” Ms Gatt said.

“If you are early enough and catch a glimpse of the filming of the ‘Good Chef Bad Chef’ episodes, visitors will be able to enjoy a host of other family friendly activities, with Japanese drumming and blues music, lion dancing, ribbon dancing, a Japanese tea ceremony, manga portraits, food stalls and much more. Set in the lush botanical gardens and taking place as a twilight event, the Sister Cities Festival is a wonderful way to spend a Friday evening,” Ms Gatt concluded.

The Sister Cities Festival takes place on Friday 9 November from 4pm to 9pm at the Moe Botanical Gardens. The event is free. The filming of episodes of the TV series ‘Good Chef Bad Chef’ begins at 3pm with Rosie then walking through the festival at 6pm.
