Taste of Sydney 2010

We are so glad for such lovely weather. The forecast has been saying possible showers but it ended up being nice and sunny!

Restaurant Balzac – Crispy wagyu beef with wild mushroom and truffle foam. I was surprised this came in a a spring roll form nevertheless it was so yummy! I wanted seconds and thirds!

Img_4194
Guillaume at Bennelong – mini sandwich with blue swimmer crab meat and coriander mayonnaise. I found this a bit boring, it taste not bad but nothing stood out.

Bird Cow Fish – Braised cape grim beef cheek and glazed onion pie in sour cream and puff pastry case, red wine veal jus. Really like the puff pastry with this dish!

Guillaume at Bennelong – Wagyu Beef dacbe with paris mash. Very very tender beef with the melt in your mouth feeling! Not sure what paris mash meant but it was a damn good mash.

Four in hand = 12 hour slow cooked lamb shoulder; minted crushed peas and feta dressing. This was a bit of a let down. I found the lamb bit bland, it probably needed sauce. Not as tender as I thought it would be.

Pilu at freshwater – suckling pig panino with apple, mustard and rocket served with sonoma sourdough. The bread was a bit tough but I found the bread made a great pairing with pig anyways :) . The dish worked very well with each flavour.

Jonah’s at whale beach – vanilla panna cotta with lavender honey and fresh pomegranate. I remember ChocolateSuze’s video from last year and couldn’t help myself but wobble this baby around the same :) . I think this was my favourite dish it had a good level of sweetness. I love the lavender honey as well. I could eat so many of these.

Flying fish – Sri Lankan love cake with rasberry tea coulis. This was slightly nutty it kinda reminded me baklava and something I can’t put my finger to it.

Taste of sydney is held from 11th to 14th of March at Centennial Parklands.
