KatyHolder_400Learn how to give your tucker a touch of the gourmet at Gemfest – Festival of Gems, from 6 – 9 August 2015 at Anakie, Australia’s largest Sapphire exhibition.

You don’t need to go glamping when you are camping to rustle up a meal that is more than just a couple of snags and a tin of baked beans.

London-born, Sydney-based food writer and stylist Katy Holder will demonstrate how anyone can create delicious camp-made food.

“Gemfest typifies the best of regional events – unique attractions like Katy Holder’s awesome cooking demonstrations are what brings visitors back again and again to this great event,” Capricorn Enterprise CEO Mary Carroll said.

The fact that many of the visitors have been coming back for extended stays for decades speaks volumes about the quality of entertainment that this event has provided for so long.”

Katy and her family regularly pack up the car and head for the bush or the beach but no matter where Katy pitches her tent, plans for the next meal are never far from her mind.

Katy will show festival goers that with a little forethought and preparation, eating under the stars can be as good as, if not better than any meal eaten at home.
