The WA Good Food Guide’s 2021 Awards
Returning after a two-year hiatus the 2021 West Australian Good Food Guide Awards wasn’t just an opportunity to celebrate the hospitality sector, its high achievers and those from the worlds of primary production, winemaking, and brewing, but also a chance to introduce an evolution of this decade-old fixture, the only independent state-based guide in Australia.
The night held at Optus Stadium, started with a powerful Welcome to Country by group Middar Yorgra and led by Millie Penny, and set the tone for the evening ahead.
Guests were delighted with a menu that featured WA’s finest producers, with snacks featuring Leeuwin Coast Akoya oysters, Rose Mallee wagyu, Harvey Beef, Shark Bay Scallops, as well as Fremantle Octopus, Glacier 51 toothfish and Linley Valley Pork. Drinks, meanwhile, came from producers such as 708gin, Blind Corner, McHenry Hohnen, Swinney, Peccavi and Wills Domain.
Volvo Cars Perth were the proud sponsor of the Excellence in Front of House Award; which was awarded to Sarah Atkinson of Le Rebelle. As a company that strives for excellence and an outstanding level of service, we were delighted to see the award go to co-owner of the nostalgic neighbourhood bistro and bar. Congratulations to Sarah, who’s role as host, waiter, sommelier, DJ and leader has put her among the state’s best and brightest. A full rundown of the awards and winners can be found here.
