JULY - DECEMBER 2011
Daniel Sharp knows his stuff
when it comes to Great Southern
food and produce. Award-winning
chef turned culinary entrepreneur
and local superstar, Daniel started
his career in the Great Southern
and plans to open his own restaurant
in the near future. His brainchild,
Sharp Infusion fine catering, creates
world-class degustation menus for
clients at their home.
Local produce | I buy my produce
locally from Australia’s best
farmers’ market, on Collie
Street every Saturday morning.
Down south, you’ll be spoiled
for choice, with blueberries,
asparagus, different types of
citrus and things like pears
and apples coming into season
later in the year, along with
spring lamb. There is so much
difference in the Great Southern
in terms of the produce that
is available, and you can get
something almost any time
of the year.
Eat | My favourite places to
eat include the York Street
Cafe and the Vancouver Cafe,
for consistently good food. In
Denmark, try Pepper & Salt, or
The Lake House, because that’s
where the locals eat and its
Invitation | Come down to the
Boatshed Markets on Sunday
morning for my fortnightly
cooking demonstrations where
I pick random produce to cook
