As the kitchen heated up at Mandurah's annual Crab Fest yesterday so did the competition as some of the world's best watersport athletes took to the water.
A record crowd of about 140,000 flocked to the 16th annual Channel 7 Crab Fest, which celebrates the seaside city's enviable lifestyle.
Mandurah put on a delectable smorgasbord of food, music, arts and sports - and the masses came to taste, hear, see and experience.
Cooking demonstrations featuring Perth's own Chloe James and Kelly Ramsay from My Kitchen Rules and renowned chefs, including Dale Sniffen, delighted crowds.
Even Mandurah mayor Marina Vergone donned an apron and got behind the bench to whip up a treat using some local produce.
