Swan Hill region was excited to host the first night of the Heston Week Road Trip. The jam packed episode set on the banks of the Murray River in our very own Pioneer Settlement had the 12 remaining contestants pushing their limits as they aimed to impress acclaimed judge Heston Blumenthal.
Featuring an array of the local produce we feast on daily in this rich food bowl of Victoria the contestants created dishes reflective of their river environment with the Mystery Box and Invention Test.
The region has an outstanding array of attractions and experiences. The region is also home to the new world class Heartbeat of the Murray Laser Show that tells the story of the Murray River.
The Swan Hill region is also known for its breathtaking wineries and bountiful produce, thanks to its proximity by the Murray River and warm climate, with an average temperature of 15 degrees celsius during winter. The MasterChef episode provides an opportunity for local producers to showcase their goods. Suppliers of fruit and vegetables for the show include:
Lake Boga Farms, Wattle Organic Farm, Burrell Organic Veggies, Sunfruit Orchards, Mobilio Produce, Marcus Pye Produce, Long Lake Produce, Chislett Farms, Morpeth Farms, Robinvale Estate, Select Harvest and Jennifer O’Neill Produce. Select Harvest, one of the southern hemisphere’s largest almond farms, will provide almonds for contestants.
