Daniel Ser­afin

Head Chef Beach Ho­tel Seaford We love a good beachy spot to wine and dine. Chef Daniel Ser­afin is at the helm of this ho­tel, re­cently given a smart makeover. His menu stretches from clas­sics to mod, heav­ily in­flu­enced by char­grill and coal-fired ro­tis­serie treat­ments. The theme ap­plies to reg­u­lar events in­clud­ing a “Retro Race Day” Mel­bourne Cup lunch, $49, on Novem­ber 4. My favourite SA restau­rant (not my own) is... Sails, Robe. An in­gre­di­ent I can’t live with­out... is sea salt. Food is… about bring­ing peo­ple to­gether. The best meal ever sam­pled... was at the Fat Duck. It was a de­gus­ta­tion with 14 out of 15 best meals ever in one sit­ting. For me, the worst meal ever... was a sar­dine on toast ice cream, that odd course out at the Fat Duck. The most em­bar­rass­ing item in my fridge/pantry... is potato gems. A kitchen tool I can’t live with­out... is my KitchenAid. My bucket-list restau­rant is... Noma, in Copen­hagen. A guilty plea­sure... is stop­ping in at Ying Chow for a meal at mid­night. My favourite cook­book... is

by Tom Kitchin. My last sup­per or­der would be... three cour­ses (at least) by chef Peter Gil­more from Quay in Syd­ney. I would be happy for him to serve what­ever he wants, all with a bot­tle of Louis XIII Co­gnac.
