The picturesque grounds of the Howlong Golf Resort played host to Celebrity Chef James Reeson recently for a special segment of the WIN Network’s ‘Alive and Cooking’.
Alive and Cooking is Australia’s hottest cooking show hosted by the celebrity chef who takes food from the garden to the kitchen, and from the ocean to the plate.
The show takes you to the heart of cooking, on location across Australia, inland, using the best wines, oils, and different foods developed by each region.
The Alive and Cooking production team also filmed in several other locations around the region, featuring some fantastic local produce in each recipe on the episode.
Federation Council Councillor David Longley, who attended the filming of the renowned show, said it was fantastic to see the Alive and Cooking crew film their latest segment at the Howlong Golf Resort.
“The joint initiative of Federation Council, Howlong Golf Resort and the WIN Network provides a great boost to not only Howlong but our entire region,” Cr Longley said.
“It was lovely to meet James and his crew and I will be looking forward to tuning in to the show just to see the great footage that was captured.”
Howlong Golf Resort General Manager Chris Rebbechi said they were thrilled to welcome James and
the Alive and Cooking crew to the region.
“There is so much to offer here from wineries, local produce, the natural environment, amazing golf courses and accommodation,” Mr Rebbechi said.
“We were thrilled to witness some of the gourmet creations that James created and the Howlong Golf Resort really provided a fantastic backdrop for his cooking show.”
Chef James Reeson said he enjoyed returning to the Murray Region to film their latest segment.
“We haven't been through the Murray Region for about five or six years,” Mr Reeson said.
“I absolutely love it here, it is a beautiful region and from the moment I heard we were headed this way I was really excited to be here and work with the great local produce.
“Anytime where you get to see where the real special produce is created - it's a rare treat.”
The segment featuring the Howlong Golf Resort and local produce is set to feature on October 26 at 3.30pm on channel WIN.
