Stokehouse x Fish by Moonlite Greek Easter Feast
Two Melbourne chefs are joining forces for a Greek Easter feast by the beach.
Just because you haven't got a big Greek family of your own, that doesn't mean you have to miss out on the fun (and fine food) of a classic Greek Easter celebration. On Sunday, May 2, St Kilda's Stokehouse restaurant is marking the Orthodox Easter season with a festive dinner to remember, spiked with plenty of traditional flavours and a few modern twists.
Joining Executive Chef Jason Staudt in the kitchen will be seafood king Matt Germanchis from Anglesea's Fish by Moonlite, so you can expect plenty of ocean-fresh elements starring throughout the evening's menu. It's set to be a truly share-friendly spread, with bookings available for tables of over eight people only, and cost $130 per person.
Gather the family or a few mates and get your tastebuds ready for dishes like charred Murray cod with rice and avgolemono (Greek lemon soup), raw Abrolhos island scallops served with bottarga and orange, and Andean potatoes finished with an oregano brulee. There'll be lamb forequarter racks slow-cooked over embers — and, for dessert, Pastry Chef Ash Smith will unveil his own riff on the traditional Greek Easter red eggs (or kokkina avga).
