Just over an hours drive north of Perth, the regional crayfishing community of Lancelin will be hosting the first Lobster Brunch on the 17th January to celebrate the amazing produce from this pristine pocket of Australia.
A delicious menu highlighting the famous Western Rock Lobster will be curated by WA Food Ambassador and Chef, Don Hancey.
Served alongside a Gingin salad and fresh bread from the New Norcia Bakery, the menu will include half a Western Rock Lobster caught by the Geraldton Fishermans Co-op. Other regional food producers adding their flavor to the meal are Sumich Olive Oil, the Loose Leaf Lettuce Company and WA Potatoes.
“I’ll be grilling western rock lobsters over a fire pit on Lancelin Beach – right by the ocean from where these little beauties come from. The quality of seafood and produce from this pocket of Western Australia is simply outstanding. I’m very excited to be bringing together some of these fresh ingredients for this unique brunch.” Says Chef Don Hancey. “There will be a few hundred half lobster tails on the grill – it will be quite a sight.”
Gingin winery Riseborough’s refreshing Chenin Blanc and Matso’s famous Ginger Beer will be served with the brunch menu, as well as Michael Brothers fresh juices, coffee and tea on long wooden picnic tables.
This is Perth’s most exciting summer breakfast – not to be missed!!
Limited tickets are available now for the beachside brunch, taking place on Sunday, January 17 from 10am – at LancelinOceanClassic.com.au
Ticket prices are $60 for adults and $45 for under 18 year olds.
The brunch is held during the Lancelin Ocean Classic weekend, which includes the 25km water marathon from Ledge Point to Lancelin by windsurf, kitesurf or ocean kayak.
The crayfishing industry has become a permanent part of the Lancelin culture, with iconic lobster traps drying in the sun throughout the seaside area. The local fishing industry are huge supporters of the Lancelin Ocean Classic, taking a day off from catching lobster to support the water marathon, using their boats as markers for the 300 athletes.
