Bennelong Is Hosting A Mammoth Lamington Drive So You Can Scoff Down All The Sponge Chocolate

National Lamington Day is upon us which means the sweet jam-stuffed chocolate feeds are too.

Taking inspiration from the good old fashioned school canteen lamington drive, Bennelong is hosting its famous fundraising drive for the second year, with all proceeds donated to R U OK?, Australia’s suicide prevention organisation that’s all about championing having meaningful conversations.

This weekend, chef Peter Gilmore’s iconic (very extra) cherry jam lamington will be available across the entire restaurant and bar which means you can expect easy access to the square island of cherry jam coconut ice-cream and sponge encased in glossy chocolate ganache, surrounded by flecks of liquid nitrogen coconut milk parfait.

The Bennelong cherry jam lamington will be available at Bennelong Restaurant and at Cured & Cultured during lunch from 12pm, and dinner from 5:30pm (bookings are essential). The dessert will also be available at Bennelong Bar from 12pm right throughout the afternoon to dinner until sold out (walk-ins welcome).
