At the chef's Table was Alex Herbert from Bird Cow Fish. The dish she cooked was the Boned and rolled roasted chicken stuffed with mushroom duxelle; pommes puree. We tried the dish earlier, it was brilliant. Quite complicated dish and I can't image how she managed to prepare so many of them for the four days even. Love her food and I will definitely go to her restaurant when next time we visit Sydney.
At the Taste Kitchen that afternoon featured Penny Williams, Executive Chef, Bali Asli. While she's going to open up her own restaurant in Bali, that's a bit far away. However, she cooked a fresh and beautiful satay chicken that day and the sauce was amazing!
Black pepper and curry leaf prawn skewers with lime and fresh coconut $10 from Flying Fish
Mussels steamed with chilli, white wine, tomato and parsley $10 from A Tavola / Omerta
Four hours were definitely not enough to try all the fantastic dishes available but certainly a great food experience to taste some of Sydney's most incredible restaurants in one afternoon. Now I can't wait to go to Taste of Melbourne later of the year!
