Talent: Alice Chugg and Vladimir Panevin (Ettie´s) | Venue: Kitchen Space | Price: $150
Having spent time exploring and cooking on Flinders Island in early 2018 as part of the inaugural Flinders Island Food Festival, sommelier/chef duo Alice Chugg and Vladimir Panevin will be showcasing their favourite producers from this remote island paradise in a very special long lunch event. Expect to taste some of Australia´s most flavourful produce from an island that lies in the roaring forties and is known to only a few. Vladimir will be cooking over the coals and guests can expect a four course lunch including crayfish, lamb and wallaby using island along with dessert that might include berries with hay scented custard honey. It depends what the ingredients these intrepid cooks can source and forage direct from the island. Alice will pair the dishes with a cocktail featuring Flinders Island gin and Tasmanian wines.
With a population of just 1000 people, Flinders Island has long flown under the foodie radar. However, the first Flinders Island Food Festival - held in April this year - has showcased its unique produce and chefs are now keen to experience more of what it has to offer. Be amongst those who are in the know about this new food destination and enjoy the best food and wine this wild island has to offer.
