MIS­TER Bianco restau­rant in Mel­bourne’s Kew will re­place its Si­cil­ian spe­cial­ties with Filipino flavours for a spe­cial din­ner on Tues­day, Fe­bru­ary 11, to raise funds to help the re­build­ing process of the South­east Asian na­tion dev­as­tated by Typhoon Haiyan, which struck on Novem­ber 8, killing more than 6000 peo­ple and leav­ing mil­lions home­less or dis­placed. Mis­ter Bianco’s Philip­pines-born head chef Fel Gayanilo (pic­tured) says all pro­ceeds from the $85-a-head event will go to the Red Cross to as­sist re­con­struc­tion in the hard­est-hit re­gions of The Philip­pines, in­clud­ing the prov­inces of Ak­lan, Capiz, Cebu, Iloilo, Leyte, Palawan and Sa­mar. The mul­ti­course, shared-ta­ble meal, with matched wines, will fea­ture tasty-sound­ing Filipino spe­cial­i­ties such as mack­erel and oys­ter ce­viche with green chilli, young gin­ger, sum­mer cit­rus and mint; co­conut steamed mus­sels with spiced and pounded cashews, and a tra­di­tional salad com­prised of salted duck eggs, okra and egg­plant.
