Party with three of Australia's best Italian chefs.
in partnership with
Pasta doesn't get much better than this – even in Italy. Three of Australia's best Italian chefs are getting together to throw a Pasta Party. For one evening only, they'll be sharing their knowledge of old world traditions and new world innovations, in between serving up a four-course, decadent dinner with, of course, matching wines.
Two members of the trio will by flying in from interstate for the occasion. They are Sydney's Mitch Orr of Acme fame and Perth's Joel Valvasori-Pereza, who heads up Lula La Delizia. Joining them will be Melbourne's Andreas Papadakis (Tipo 00).
On arrival, you'll be greeted with a glass of rosé, before sitting down to your feast, during which each creation will be introduced by the chef who made it. Among the dishes planned are stracciatella with shiitake and brown butter; smoked garganelli with pork and fennel sausage and broccoli; and cacao tortellini with pine mushrooms. Dessert? Absolutely. Panna cotta vera with toasted walnuts and burnt orange syrup.
All matching drops come from Brand's Laira, a multi-award winning winery in Coonawarra, South Australia, with the exception of the sticky, which is a Peter Lehmann botrytis semillon.
The Pasta Party will take place at Melbourne Palms, a Palm Springs-inspired restaurant set to pop up in Fed Square throughout Good Food Month. The most delicious news of all is that we're giving away two tickets, worth $140 each.
