Join cream of the crop at Palates of Port

Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - FRONT PAGE -

TIME is run­ning out to se­cure your seat at Palates of Port to­mor­row night fea­tur­ing the re­gion’s ‘‘cream of the culi­nary crop’’.

The eight-course de­gus­ta­tion to be staged at the iconic Sugar Wharf is be­ing cre­ated by the head chefs of some of the re­gion’s best restau­rants in­clud­ing Salsa Bar & Grill, Nau­tilus, Bucci, Bel Cibo, Thala Beach Lodge, Zai, Sher­a­ton Mi­rage and Port Dou­glas Cater­ing & Events.

Or­gan­iser Cameron Wal­ton said it was the best lineup of restau­rants since the event was cre­ated three years ago and the chefs have joined forces to en­sure the menu lives up to the col­lec­tive rep­u­ta­tions of their restau­rants.

‘‘We’ll have eight of the best head chefs in the re­gion work­ing as a team in the same kitchen,’’ he said.

‘‘Each chef is re­spon­si­ble for one dish but they will all be work­ing to­gether on them un­der the head chef for that des­ig­nated dish.

‘‘The at­mos­phere in the kitchen has been amaz­ing as they are all feed­ing off each other to make their dishes some­thing spec­tacu- lar.

‘‘ They l ove work­ing t ogether and are so switched on to im­press, it’s some­thing they never get the chance to do.

‘‘ Each chef has also hand- picked a pre­mium wine to bring out the best in their dish.’’

The evening will have a Great Gatsby theme to be en­hanced by jazz le­gend Wilma Read­ing and her six­piece band Take V to trans­form the Sugar Wharf back to the ‘‘roar­ing ’20s’’.

Limited tick­ets are avail­able.

Palates of Port will be held from 6.30pm to­mor­row at the Sugar Wharf. Tick­ets are $ 169.50 per per­son allinclu­sive and avail­able via­ni­
