Locals and visitors to Mudgee are being encouraged to become food critics this month and sample a ‘Local Plate’ or two to be in with the chance to win an all-expenses paid weekend in Mudgee.
There will be a huge variety of Local Plate dishes to choose from, with almost 20 local eateries taking part in the competition. You can start off with breakfast, then head off to a quick lunch, followed by a slow grazing platter or a fine dining experience. All Local Plate dishes will feature at least 80% produce although many dishes have 100% of the ingredients sourced within a 100-mile radius of the Mudgee region.
Once you’ve tried a Local Plate dish, all you have to do to be in the draw for the big prize is fill out a voting form with your verdict of the Local Plate you tried, and place your completed form in the entry box.
The prize includes two nights’ accommodation at Putta Bucca B&B, a meal for two at the Champion Local Plate restaurant, a wine tour, a hamper of local produce, and farm walk tickets.
It’s a great prize and even if you don’t win it’s still definitely worth heading to any of the restaurants taking part in the Local Plate to try their sensational dishes.
