More than 160 people attended a special event at Norfolk Island’s Governors Lodge Resort last week at which four of the island’s top chefs collaborated to create a five-course feast to raise funds to build a new cultural centre.

The Four Chefs Dinner featured culinary creations from Dean Bosley from Dino’s Italian Restaurant, Kurt Menghetti from The Garrison Restaurant, Damien Couprie from Governors Lodge and Rachel Neighbour, formerly head chef at Government House.
Norfolk Island Tourism general manager, Terry Watson, said the dinner was so successful the organisers wanted to turn it into an annual event.
“The most impressive part is that the exceptional dishes available on Norfolk are made purely from produce grown at local market gardens and local’s backyards, so it doesn’t get any fresher,” he said.
Foodies travelling to Norfolk Island can experience the local produce first hand, with farm and industry tours offering an overview of the market gardens that supply the island’s eateries, local livestock trade, coffee plantations, winery and liqueur factory.
