Cooking tips for El Questro guests
A must for foodies -- El Questro Homestead guests are this year being invited to join Executive Chef Alan Groom in the kitchen to learn his culinary tips.
El Questro Homestead is located in the Kimberley region of Western Australia -- in the million acre El Questro Wilderness Park.
As the luxury six-room Homestead prepares to open for its twentieth season in April - the official end of the annual wet season - the gorges and rivers are full, there is an abundance of wildlife, and the kitchen is set to take full advantage of an extensive range of local produce sourced from the Kimberley area.
Guests at the Homestead dine under the stars at large communal tables by the pool and on the verandah. Honeymooners will enjoy dining at one of the incredibly romantic tables on the edge of the gorge, overlooking the river, and with a soundtrack of owls and frogs.
One of the chef’s favourites is wild, saltwater barramundi from Wyndham, a hundred kilometres away. It is always on the menu and it would be rare for a guest not to enjoy a 'barra' during their stay – and they should not leave without trying the chef’s barramundi with green mango and boab root salsa.
Of course, there’s more to do than just eat at El Questro Holestead. Guests can take advantage of one of the many activities included in the tariff, such as exclusive use of the Zebedee hot thermal springs, or the 4WD tour to Branco's Lookout, or perhaps more simply just laze around by the pool, or enjoy a chilled glass of Australian wine or a 'tinnie' (beer) by the Chamberlain River on a balmy afternoon.
El Questro Homestead opens from April 1 to October 31 every year.
