The Catering Institute of Western Australia's annual Gold Plate Awards were held recently. It is 38 years since the Gold Plate Awards started as a low-key event and have grown to be Western Australia's premier hospitality Awards.

Two great friends of the HOME in WA television series were honoured at the Gold Plate Awards this year…. The delightful Cape Lavender at Wilyabrup near Margaret River and the fabulous Il Principe Gran Caffe in Colin St West Perth.

Picturesque Cape Lavender was presented with the prestigious Prix D'Honeur for winning five gold plates and three in succession for its category, in 2002, 2003 and 2004, including 'Best Freestanding Cafe - Country Licensed' and 'Best Licensed Casual Dining - Country'.

Bev and Jeff Clark bought the property in 1999 and have built up a specialty lavender nursery of nearly 100 varieties, a superb gift shop and of course, their Gold Plate café restaurant.

In the immaculate gift shop, you can find lavender perfumed soaps, essential oils, moisturisers, cleansers and all the other delightful body products you would expect in a well considered selection.

There's also teas, fudges and biscuits as well as the chef's own range of jams, chutneys, honey and other choice produce.

Cape Lavender also produce an exquisite range of wines from superb premium shiraz to a range of lavender wines including a delicate champagne-style sparkling white.

Cape Lavender is located at Carter Road, Wilyabrup (near Margaret River) Hours are from 10am to 5 pm 7 days a week. Telephone 9755 7552
