Celebrity Chef Feast

The Whitsunday foodie event of the year

5 December 2016

Taking place last month was our inaugural foodie event at Lure, the Celebrity Chef Feast. Gathering together some incredible local and regional guest chef, the team at Lure put together an iconic event on the Whitsunday food calendar.

The seven-course degustation menu was accompanied by a range of quality vintage wines by Philip Shaw Wineries, with each course inspired by a different guest chef. The menu for the evening made mouths water and we wanted to share the delights that were on the table:

1st Course/ Canapes – created by Rod Ramsay: served with The Edinburgh sparkling wine

  • Salmon tartare, apple & fennel salad, baby coriander.
  • Southern fried buttermilk chicken, chipotle aioli

2nd Course – created by Rod Ramsay: served with No (Block) 19 Sauvignon Blanc
