Foodies, rejoice! The Star Entertainment Group is about to spice up your life with 40 Days of Flavour – an autumn explosion of food, drink and entertainment from 22 March – 30 April. Basically, it’s going to be the culinary event of the season.
For 40 days and nights, The Star Gold Coast and Treasury Brisbane will plate up a diverse program of unique dining experiences, created by some of Australia’s brightest chefs.
An imitate Japanese omakase menu at Kiyomi, a progressive dinner of signature dishes at The Star Gold Coast, world class degustation at Black Hide by Gambaro steakhouse, and a sparkling Moët & Chandon High Tea are just an appetiser of what awaits on the menu.
Here are a few of the sensational events:
Nineteen at The Star Chef’s Showcase
Guests will enjoy a spectacular four-course celebration of executive chef Uday Huja’s favourite flavour combinations and staple spices for autumn, set against the glittering Gold Coast skyline from this chic rooftop restaurant and bar. A sensory overload, the feast starts with signature oysters paired with a glass of Dominique Portet Brut Rosé, before a first course with a choice of heirloom tomato and nectarine salad, beef tartare, southern calamari or pumpkin risotto. Mains include john dory, roasted ocean trout or a grain-fed scotch fillet while sweet tooths will savour the coconut and mango panna cotta with smoked macadamia ice cream or chocolate meringue pie.
22 March – 30 April, Friday & Saturday Lunch from 12pm. $96pp
The Lab Moët & Chandon High Tea at Treasury Brisbane
For those who wish to indulge their sweet and savoury desires with a decadent afternoon, this is an ideal treat for that special occasion, or no occasion at all.
