Whilst food can be nourishing for the body, what can be good for the soul is giving to a charity. And when you can combine the two, well that is even better! Variety is a wonderful children's charity dedicated to improving the lives of sick, disadvantaged and special needs kids. In the last three years, the Variety of Chefs dinners in Sydney and Brisbane have raised over $500,000 for Variety!
This year, there are three chefs Regan Porteous from Toko, Peter Kuruvita and Mr Chen the NTD Chinese culinary competition winner. The menu is as follows:
Regan Porteous from Toko
All served as shared platters
Freshly shucked Pacific Oysters Tosazu
Thinly sliced Kingfish sashimi, chilli yuzu ponzu dressing
Beef Tataki, pickled onions, soy, sake, vinegar
Spanner Crab Kinilaw
Wagyu Beef, Short Ribs, Celerica and Smoke Pomme Puree
Tremella & goji berry rock candy stew
