This unique event is an opportunity to dine al fresco at Biring Biring Farm in South East Gippsland, feasting on produce sourced only from the South East Gippsland area.

Enjoy a special dining experience overlooking Wilsons Promontory at the farm, which is part of Gippsland Natural Beef - Australia's only carbon-neutral beef producer.

The beautiful setting will see guests seated at communal tables to enjoy a menu created using locally sourced produce cooked over an open fire, including sumptuous grilled meat from Gippsland Natural Beef.

The menu features produce from other passionate local farmers including Amber Creek Farm, Mirboo Pastured Poultry Farm, Pangrazzi Cheese and Aherns Fruit Market and Fine Foods.

Saravia will share his expertise in Peruvian flavours, ingredients and cooking techniques while other chefs will also be invited to share their stories in flavour from the South Gippsland region.
