Handsome hors d’oeuvres, exquisite entrees, mouth-watering mains and delectable desserts were the focus for the “Wild Wetls” fundraising dinner last Wednesday night. Governors Lodge Hotel Resort hosted the event which was organised by the Norfolk Island Food Festival committee, and with great support from the local community (as always) the night was a huge success! The concept was to bring four of Norfolk Island’s top chefs together under one roof to present a truly memorable Norfolk evening to raise funds and assist the Food Festival. Each of the chefs were asked to prepare a dish which reflects their restaurant, their style of cooking and to utilise the amazing, fresh produce.
The NIFF Committee are having so much fun organising the different events for the Norfolk Island Food Festival. One very special event is the ‘Wild Wetls’ 4 Chefs Dinner. (Wetls means Food in our Norfolk language) This is going to be such a unique event on Norfolk Island where 3 of our tops Chefs as well as Fast Ed will be cooking a 3 course meal for you – our guests! Wild Wetls will be a formal evening with special entertainment and of course Chef Dominique Rizzo will be our MC. We simply can’t wait! Make sure you book soon before tickets sell out!
How exciting! Norfolk Island will be holding the first ever Food Festival and you can share the exciting experience!

This is an event not to be missed. There will be many foodies travelling from Australia and New Zealand and some have organised groups of friends to attend together.
