Cre­ativ­ity to fire your five senses

Western Suburbs Weekly - - Food -

col­lab­o­ra­tion to sup­port and high­light lo­cal tal­ents, the real value of the events is in giv­ing back to Jocelyn Fran­cis­cus’s char­ity Cord by rais­ing funds and aware­ness for the spinal in­jury unit at Fiona Stan­ley Hos­pi­tal.

“Jocelyn is a re­ally good friend of ours and does amaz­ing things. She is one of the most in­spir­ing peo­ple I have ever met in my life, pre and post her ac­ci­dent.”

Five Bar owner Andy McIntyre said he was look­ing for­ward to the chal­lenge of match­ing food and drinks to the bou­tique range of fra­grances.

“Be­ing a long-time friend of Bree’s and a big ad­vo­cate for Beau­fort Street, it’s a re­ally great op­por­tu­nity for us to work to­gether,” McIntyre said.

“I sat down with all the chefs and my mixol­o­gist and nut­ted out some re­ally in­ter­est­ing dishes.

“It is quite in­spir­ing work­ing with fra­grances; they have so much va­ri­ety that you can re­ally delve into lit­tle bits and pieces and bring them out.

“One per­fume, Love in Black, has some great black­cur­rant notes, so we’ve matched that with a beau­ti­ful pinot noir from down south and duck breast with molec­u­lar cur­rant gel and or­ange tones through­out.”

Cottes­loe bou­tique Lulu & I owner Teresa Rove­datti said she could not wait to put to­gether her fash­ion show with Em­pire Rose, In­fa­mous Friends and Zomp Shoes.

“There are some beau­ti­ful rich colours for win­ter, it is go­ing to be amaz­ing,” Rove­datti said. Ten fra­grances matched with cock­tails, tast­ings, art­work auc­tions, live mu­sic and a fash­ion pa­rade at Five Bar.
