WA Good Food Guide Awards

17 November, 2014

The inaugural West Australia Good Food Guide Awards was held last night at the State Theatre. This is a night where the people who run our ever blooming restaurant and bar scene down their tools and rub shoulders for a night to celebrate a year of hard work and achievement.

Scott Taylor from The Trustee, Beaufort St Merchant and Enrique’s was selected as the key note speaker for the night. He delivered a cheer prompting poignant speech, or as he called it “a rant” about how the scene should have less red tape to open venues, especially in regards to Liquor Licensing. Taylor also encouraged the people there to instil a good culture in their young staff, as “great staff make for a great night out”. Something the white collar world has known and mostly failed at is the notion that “culture starts at the top”. Hear hear!

Congratulations to all the winners  on the night and thank you to the West Australian and Rob Broadfield for putting together this bible of restaurants, cafes and bars to visit in WA. This book shows how great the dining scene in Perth really is! As Broadfield said last night “are we as good as Sydney or Melbourne… who cares.”
