Prefer your locally sourced produce with a side-serve of Indian Ocean? How about a few hours aboard a luxury cruiser with one of Western Australia’s culinary superstars?
At this year’s Gourmet Escape, Bib’s very own star chef, Scott Bridger, got the opportunity to treat a select few to a fresher-than-fresh feast of canapes aboard the Kimberley Quest II, a custom-built 25 metre vessel offering comfort and style, all thanks to Audi Centre Perth.
The pristine waters of Geographe Bay was the location as those on board got to sample delectable dishes accompanied by premium Margaret River wines whilst they leisurely cruised the southern coastline.
A champion of local ingredients, Scott has been a long-time fan of the South-West and its produce, utilising it in a number of our delicious dishes here at Bib:
“We have to come down here to get produce, it’s all grown in this region. A lot of the fruit and vegetables are grown down here, because it’s got more rainfall than we do in Perth. The marron is amazing. The truffles in Manjimup. I could sit here all day! We use about 80 per cent WA produce in the restaurant and a lot of it comes from the South West.”
It’s practices likes these, that are reflective of our ongoing efforts at the restaurant to continually support local WA suppliers and place sustainability back on the menu.
The only independent, journalist based reviewer awards in WA, the WA Good Food Guide Awards recognise excellence across categories including Uber Restaurant of the Year, Winning Appliances Chef of the Year, AMP Capital Best Casual Dining and Johnnie Walker Bar Tender of the Year.

A big fan of fresh produce grown on his front door step, Scott caught up with fellow chef James Viles to share advice on how to eat local without breaking the bank.
“The world needs to slow down a bit and get itself back on track with food and how we eat, eating something that has not travelled from the other side of the earth has so many more benefits,” Scott told 9Kitchen.

Beach Honey harvested from our rooftop hives was the star attraction at our sold out Honey Degustation Dinner on June 27.
As the temperature plummeted outside, things heated up in the Bib & Tucker kitchen as executive chef Scott Bridger served up a delicious six course degustation paired with top drops from Cape Mentelle and a custom honey-infused cider created by Custard & Co.
Setting the bar high for the night, the first course featured Spanner Crab with yuzu, honey and shiso with Cape Mentelle SBS 2016, followed by The Carrot Patch: a carrot-centric dish served on a bed of dark rye soil. Adding to the natural sweetness of The Carrot Patch, Custard & Co’s burnt honey and orange cider was the perfect beverage to accompany this Insta-worthy dish!
The deliciousness continued with courses including a decadent Jerusalem artichoke and Manjimup truffle panna cotta with honey roasted macadamia crumb and nettles; crispy pork hock with chilli honey caramel, puffed barley and witlof; and honey cured Wagin duck breast with cavolo nero, rhubarb and liquorice.
Finishing the degustation on a sweet note, guests were treated to The Hive for dessert: a blend of caramelised honey and mascarpone mousse with ginger shortbread, green apple, white chocolate and honeycomb… yum!
