LAST Sunday’s inaugural Taste Live Gippsland show did not go unnoticed – an estimated 5000 visitors passed through the Warragul Showgrounds gates to wine and dine at the event.

Organiser Jeff Leech told The Warragul Citizen the event, which featured 50 producers from across Gippsland and beyond, will return bigger in 2013.


Mr Leech said the event will run over two days next year, and all stallholders from this year’s events have shown interest in returning.

You can hear the full interview with Mr Leech below.

Running live cooking demonstrations was TV chef Iain ‘Huey’ Hewitson, who also talked to The Warragul Citizen.
