AUSSIE GOLDEN TASTE
THE HOMEGROWN CHEFS PRESENTING FLAVOUR THAT WILL PACK A PUNCH
He’s known as one of Australia’s top chefs, and now Sydney’s Peter Gilmore is bringing his talents to our region for The Curated Plate.
Mr Gilmore has been at the helm of Sydney’s Quay restaurant since 2001, which has been awarded three chef hats for an unprecedented 16 consecutive years.
At The Curated Plate he will headline The Legends Lunch at Yandina Station, alongside Analiese Gregory, head chef at Hobart’s two-hatted Franklin restaurant.
You can also catch him at The Food Fair, being held at Cotton Tree’s Black Swan Park from August 9-11.
The Food Fair will transform Cotton
Tree into a thriving hub of masterclasses, chef talks, cooking demonstrations and of course, delicious food featuring some of the region’s most popular producers.
Entry is free if you pre-register online, and once inside Peter will be joined by a swag of high-profile chefs.
Among them is Donato Toce, head chef and partner at Gelato Messina.
This is the first time Gelato Messina has been brought to the Coast, and once here they will create two exclusive desserts inspired by some of the best local produce, for foodies to try.
You can also hear from Darren Robertson, of The Farm Byron Bay, and Clayton Wells of Sydney’s Automata at the Food Fair for a free masterclass on Sustainability and Sourcing Local.
They will cover topics such as using trusted suppliers from your community, sustainability practices, how seasonal produce plays a part in their own restaurants, and how this ties in with their experience cooking at The Curated Plate.
Other chefs to look out for across the festival’s line-up of events include Matt Stone (from Victoria’s Oakridge Estate), Troy Rhoades-brown (of the Hunter Valley’s Muse), Nelly Robinson (of Sydney’s nel.) and Chase Kojima (of Sokyo in Sydney).
