Round WA Dinner showcases Western Australia’s food produce in a unique menu and through cooking styles that serve them at their best
On Tuesday, February 18, we will immerse ourselves in Western Australia, through food, wine, words and music.
We’ve presented many Round the World Dinners — but this will be our first Round WA Dinner.
It will showcase Western Australia’s food produce in a unique menu and through cooking styles that serve them at their best.
It will feature WA wines, matched to the food, served as tastings.
And before each of the five courses, the stories of WA will be told by me, accompanied by the music that composer Steve Richter will write and perform just for this event.
The food, wine, stories and music will follow big themes, rather than just being focused on individual places. Coastal. Temperate. Tropical. Inland remote. Inland agricultural.
Chef Costa Simatos, who had continually surprised and stimulated our guests with the innovative food and clever menus for our Round the World Dinners, will draw from across the State for each dish.
I will write a script to exploring these themes of WA. Steve will create the soundscape of our contrasty third of this vast continent.
Coastal. Temperate. Tropical. Inland remote. Inland agricultural.
Ocean and interior. Desert and agriculture. Drama and subtlety.
WA has it all.
And we will explore them all in one dramatic evening.
