Chefs love showing off their talents, and one of the ways in which they can best do this is by offering a degustation menu, literally, a multi-course tasting menu in which in a single meal, diners sample as many as ten or twelve different courses. These types of menus offer a challenge to any serious chef and also offer an excellent opportunity for diners, because you get, in a single meal, to sample a broad range of the dishes offered by that particular chef. Celebrated native foods chef, Andrew Fielke will produce a spectacular selection of courses, designed to exhibit the very best of Australian Wild and Bush Foods. These menus typically take about 2 to 3 hours to complete. The courses have been designed to be much smaller than on the la carte menu and you eat them over a longer time, so you should never feel too full. The objective is to experience a range of tastes, aromas, and textures and finish feeling satisfied, happy and extremely content. Would you love to take your interest and expertise in bush foods to the next level? Andrew Fielke will guide you there at this hands-on workshop. Get tips, stories and new techniques at this 4.5hour session with the guru. All ingredients provided. BYO Apron, chopping board, knife and bottle of wine. We will eat what we have cooked for dinner.
