Peppers cooks up MasterChef magic with five Chefs for dinner

One of the Hunter Valley's most loved historical retreats has cooked up an amazing culinary event to satiate foodie fans to a standard of excellence befitting the hit television series MasterChef.

Thanks to an exclusive partnership between the Peppers brand and MasterChef, Peppers Guest House in the picturesque Hunter region is the ideal location to merge the magic of fine food and divine wine for an indulgent evening.

With the Hunter Valley as one of Australia's best wine and food-producing regions, Peppers Guest House is bringing five of the region's best chefs together to create MasterChef-inspired masterpieces in the kitchen of the retreat's renowned Restaurant Sanctuary.

Each talented chef will prepare their signature dish as part of an inspired 5-course degustation for the 'Chefs of the Hunter MasterChef Dinner' on Friday, September 2, from 7pm.

For $139 per person, every course will exemplify the best way to cook Hunter produce with guests enjoying personal introductions from each chef describing their unique dish, all matched to perfection by guest winemaker Jeff Byrne of Audrey Wilkinson Vineyard.

The five outstanding Hunter chefs at the centre of this MasterChef inspired experience are Michael Bolam, Head Chef at Restaurant Sanctuary; Jean Marc Pollet, Executive Chef at Mercure Resort; Paula Rengger, Head Chef at Shakey Tables Restaurant; Troy Rhoades-Brown Head Chef at Muse Restaurant and Cafe, and Daniel Kibble, Head Chef at 305 Restaurant and Cafe.

Dinner guests can have a taste of what it is like to be a real MasterChef contestant and enhance their evening with a test of their foodie knowledge in the 'Wine Options Challenge' for a chance to win prizes including official MasterChef merchandise to take home and inspire them in their own kitchens.

And to top of such an exquisite evening of culinary excellence, there are enticing rates to stay on in stylish accommodation at this charming retreat surrounded by beautiful gardens and vineyards, and offering fabulous facilities including an on-site endota spa, indoor pool and spa, sauna and tennis court.
