The Palais on the Torrens - Five Long Lunches - the Legend Continues
I am so looking forward to experiencing lunch at the Palais sitting down! All lunches are headed by a chef of renown in Australia who has some serious connection to Adelaide, born here, working here and knowing the produce. I can only imagine what is happening in that prep kitchen at the moment. Who and what's happening - 2018 Long-lunch ?
Hard to imagine that it's a year since I was in this kitchen working on the first Long Lunch at the Palais, on the Torrens, during the 2017 Adelaide Festival.
This was such an adventure, such a luxury to be allowed to recreate some of the exciting times of the '80s, such a luxury to reconnect with old friends (Philip Searle, Gabriel Gaté, The Aristologists, my Maman et al) and their dishes, such a luxury to work with an amazing bunch of chefs, all of whom had taken temporary leave from their restaurants to work on this Festival event - a series of six lunches.
I had around me head chef of The Pot, Lost in a Forest, Kenji, chefs from Garagiste, Africola and the former chef to the Australian High Commission in London, among others. To the visitors presenting these lunches, who will they find for you? You could not be in better hands! I look forward to being there.
