This will be Kate’s first event with Peppers since her big win was televised in July 2011.  Peppers has enjoyed an official association with MasterChef throughout the last season highlighting the brand’s dedication to superior food and dining - an integral part of the Peppers experience throughout the 24 retreats, resorts and hotels in Australia.

The superbly refurbished Peppers Mineral Springs Retreat and Wild Birch Dining Room, resplendent in elegant country grandeur, is the perfect location for Kate’s return to the culinary stage. The combined talents of Martin and Kate will ensure the evening is one of the year’s dining highlights.
