The finest culinary spoils of the wider Peel region is set to be showcased to a national audience later this month, in what should be a tourism and business boon for the area.
A television show named Food and Wine Trails of Western Australia is set to go to air on West TV, with chef Maurizio Di Ciano sampling delights from across the state.
While he sets off to the four corners of Western Australia to film the six-part pilot series, Mandurah and the wider Peel region is also showcased.
Local businesses to be featured include the Oceanic Bar & Grill, 3 Rivers Brewing Company and Spudshed.
This trio is joined by Mandurah Houseboats, Drakebrook Fine Wines, Jettys Var & Grill and Kebab Masters.
The premiere of the show will take place in Perth on Monday, with a star-studded audience expected to get the first glimpse of the production.
Minister for Regional Development; Agriculture & Food Alannah MacTiernan will be on hand to open proceedings at Backlot Studios in West Perth.
Citrus Marketing co-executive producer Jon Ring said the Peel region was heavily featured in the show and plans were on hand to circulate it to a wide national and international audience.
“In essence, my idea is to promote Western Australia around Australia and beyond – Mandurah is a real highlight within the series,” he said.
“We have a lot to offer in WA.”
Food and Wine Trails of Western Australia will be on Channel 44 from Thursday, October 18 from 8pm.
Repeats will be broadcast on Saturdays at 7.30pm.
