Join cream of the crop at Palates of Port
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 via www.carnivale.com.au.
