Double Bay restaurant, Vine is hosting a series of chef collaboration dinners, aptly named Origins Dinner Series. Each dinner will see one of Sydney’s best chefs partner with Vine’s Executive Chef Drew Bolton to create a bespoke menu with paired wines, inspired by each chef’s origins, cuisine and style of cooking.
We have a feeling you may get excited over the first cab off the rank because, on the pans for the one night only event, is none other than Noma Australia chef and chief forager, Elijah Holland. For weeks, the boys have been foraging and gathering items from the Blue Mountains and surrounds to include in their menu, some of which they’ve been pickling, preserving and fermenting so they’ll be ready in time for the five-course extravaganza.
They’ve even been out hunting for game to dry-age, making their own cheese and have been in cahoots with a local brewer to create a brand new craft beer especially for the event. Along with paired wines and a signature craft beer, the mixologists at Vine have been designing themed cocktails for the evening as well. Yeah, it’s safe to say that you won’t go thirsty.
Dinners to follow Foraged & Gathered will feature celebrity chef Danny Russo celebrating his provincial Italian roots, Israeli-born ex-Aria chef Roy Ner and head chef of Sydney’s only hatted Indian restaurant, Aki’s, Kumar Mahadevan.
