Fresh is best in kitchen

AWARD-WINNING Brisbane chef David Pugh spent the day in Bundaberg yesterday pushing the virtues of the region's local produce.

In a busy day, Mr Pugh, owner and head chef of Restaurant Two in Brisbane, had three separate sessions — with students, chefs, and restaurateurs.

He was brought to Bundaberg by Bundaberg North Burnett Tourism (BNBT) as part of a strategy to highlight the great food produced in the region.

BNBT general manager James Corvan said the purpose of Mr Pugh's visit was to make local chefs aware of the fresh produce in the region.

“It's important that food doesn't travel thousands of kilometres away and then thousands of kilometres back here,” he said.
