Fabulous feast

The weather deities smiled upon Barham’s inaugural Feast, blessing it with a miraculous 21-degree evening in April. Patrons revelled in the joyous atmosphere, relishing local delicacies and live music.

The beautifully arranged venue, orchestrated by event company Mack and Mills, hosted over 100 attendees on the boardwalk. Musician Elise Drake’s enchanting performance drew crowds, adding to the festive ambience.

From citrus-cured cod to succulent beef with pepper berries, each plate was savored to the last bite. Local libations from Restdown Wines, Baham Citrus Gin, and Barham’s own beer selection further elevated the dining experience, expertly managed by cluBarham’s Josh Forster.

Indulgence didn’t stop there; the dessert featured a rich avocado chocolate mousse with walnut praline, tantalizing the taste buds of all present.

Guests like Murray Downs farmer Rodney Dunn and his wife Valerie echoed the sentiment of a splendid evening celebrating local produce and community spirit.
