Baw Baw’s Finest Produce Features on Good Chef/Bad Chef

Published on 17 January 2019


Baw Baw Shire will showcase as the ultimate foodie destination on television screens nationwide in an upcoming episode of Channel 10’s Good Chef/Bad Chef.

Due to air from late February, the episode features host Rosie Mansfield creating a selection of dishes using some of our region’s best produce. Dairy, tomatoes and honey were sourced from local businesses including Gippsland Jersey and Flavorite Tomatoes.

Filming took place over two days last in November at the Noojee Trestle Bridge, Vue at Jindivick and the Harvest Fest event held at Lardner Park.

This opportunity has been made available through Council’s Economic Development Strategy in partnership with Hsquared, the Good Chef/Bad Chef team and our local producers and businesses.
