North Fremantle’s Bib and Tucker will join Fremantle’s Manuka Wood Fire, The Honey Cake and The Monk Brewery and Kitchen in the initial line-up, giving the local businesses a chance to share their creations with a wider audience.

Manuka Wood Fire head chef and owner Kenny McHardy said it would be a great experience for the young restaurant, which opened in June last year.

“We offer fresh local and seasonal produce and come up with ways of serving them in a sharing manner utilising our wood oven,” he said.

“We are really excited to be part of Taste this year and I look forward to the new challenges and the logistics of organising an event of this magnitude.

“There are a lot of local restaurants that are bringing a strong culture of paddock-to-plate dining that gives our customers an opportunity to learn where their produce has come from and opportunities like Taste of Perth gives us local restaurants a bigger stage to take this approach to food.”
