Popular writer, TV personality and cook Nigella Lawson will return for a second helping of Margaret River Gourmet Escape this November.
Lawson joins more than 40 culinary stars in the line-up for the food and wine festival.

Crowd-favourites Rick and Jack Stein, Tetsuya Wakuda, Matt Stone, Jo Barrett, Mitch Orr and Guy Grossi are among the other star returners.
International stars visiting the festival for the first time in 2018 include Australian, London-based chef and author Skye Gyngell and MasterChef: The Professionals and TV regular Monica Galetti.
As well as the Gourmet Beach BBQ and Gourmet Village, other much-loved events including Feast in the Forest, Sunset, Beats and Bites, Fraser Gallop Estate Long Lunch and Dining by Twilight at Margaret Rivers Secret Garden will return to the program.
