The Fisherman and The Butcher
This extravagant six-course degustation brings together Olio's Lino Sauro and Adrian Richardson of 'Good Chef Bad Chef' for one night only.
Kensington Street fine diner Olio is bringing together the land and the sea for an extravagant night of cooking from head chef Lino Sauro and Melbourne's Adrian Richardson (La Luna). Richardson, the co-host of the hit show Good Chef Bad Chef, will collaborate with Sauro and the Olio team to present a six-course feast that brings together the best of Sicilian and Australian cuisine.
Each chef is taking charge of three courses on the set menu. Richardson will be bringing his focus on using every cut of meat from the animal, which he developed at La Luna, and applying it to crispy pigs ears, crackling-wrapped pork loin and filet mignon served with Café de Paris butter in the degustation. "We actually use a lot of cuts that aren't mainstream, so we're using the whole animal in our own particular, strange sort of way," Richardson said.
As for Sauro's offerings, diners will be treated to triple-cooked octopus with lemon crushed potatoes and spicy capsicum aioli; a seafood-heavy tonnarelli made with squid ink spaghetti, then topped with a Australian Bay bug, shellfish and spicy pork 'nduja sauce; and a decedent chocolate mousse for dessert.
This Good Food Month event offers a one-off opportunity to experience the cooking of two of the country's best chefs in one memorable night.
