Palazzo Versace will be host to three of Victoria’s top chefs for a long weekend of culinary dinners and a mouth-watering master class – an extraordinary gastronomic encounter perfectly suited to Versace’s sophisticated fine dining restaurant Vanitas.
See Scott Pickett of Melbourne’s The Estelle, Mathew Macartney of Eleonore’s Restaurant in the Yarra Valley, and Pierre Khodja of Flinders Hotel in action on Friday, 27th and Saturday, 28th July as they prepare a four-course degustation dinner.
Master of Ceremonies, Gerard Doherty from Shared Tables Chefs Association, will mediate intriguing conversations over dinner, with Friday’s topic of discussion covering, ‘The future of Australian cuisine’ and Saturday’s topic addressing the question, ‘Are there too many foodie shows on television?’ The Gourmet Gala four course menu will change each evening and include premium matched wines. Tickets are $220 per person, per event.
On Sunday afternoon, attendees of a demonstration Master Class will see these chefs at work as they show how to recreate their special dishes at home. Tickets are $100 per person for a three-course lunch menu with dishes from the demonstration with matching wines.
