Master cooking class

THERE are plenty of budding master chefs in the Clarence Valley judging by the number of people chasing tickets to next weekend's Gate to Plate Masterclass.

The box in The Daily Examiner front office has a stack of entries in it, but we're looking for more.

The innovative event for the 2012 Causley Fresh Gate to Plate is a demonstration showcasing the talents of former Graftonian Anthony Perring at No. 1 Duke Street and also what you can do with local produce.

Mr Perring will run the class on Saturday.

He has a reputation as a creative chef mixing interesting flavours and good fresh produce.

Through his website he has sought to improve the culinary lot of those with eating disorders or difficulty swallowing by providing tasty recipes using the right ingredients.

He also runs a cafe and catering business in Sydney,, and in March 2012 provided a special Clarence Valley-based menu for The Gallery Foundation's function for donors and supporters in Sydney.

"I'm very excited to be back in Grafton doing a cooking demonstration master class for Gate to Plate," he said.

"It's such a great concept to eat local, and I hope I can provide some inspiration for interesting things to do with local produce.

"The hardest thing is there is so much fresh produce to choose from."

To be in with a chance to win a ticket, answer the question "on what dates will the Gate to Plate be held" on the coupon below and bring it to The Daily Examiner's Grafton office.

The winner will be drawn on Wednesday and announced in Thursday's paper.
