When I heard of a french party being organised at Restaurant Atelier by Miss Piggy, I jumped at the chance to attend. Who would say no to a big fancy french dinner party?
To start off the night - Tapenade, EVOO and balsamic and Pepe Saya butter
I only had eyes for that deliciously creamy butter, and had to stop myself from filling up on the bread. Speaking of Pepe Saya butter, I have some in the fridge right now, just waiting to be devoured!
Sourdough bread - the perfect vessel for the butter
These were smoked crisps - a tad on the salty side, but so addictive!
Amuse bouche of yellow fin tuna, coral tenax, red capsicum jelly - Perfectly seared tuna, with the coral adding an interesting texture to the dish + I really enjoyed the intense flavour of the capsicum jelly
WA marron tempura, crisp pork belly with a fermented soybean miso - This would have to be my favourite dish of the night, with the mouthwatering morsels of crispy pork belly. Heavenly!
Master Kobe wagyu tartare, crisp quail egg, pea and broadbean salad
Poached fillet of John Dory, with celeriac, potato and wilted mache, sauce Bernaise
Szechuan and caramel glazed breast of Thirlmere duck, crisp confit leg, sweet and sour baby turnips and radishes, Szechaun vinegar sauce
Vanilla custard, coconut crunch, Sheep's milk yoghurt ice cream
Caramelized pistachio and coca nib souffle with sweet miso milk shake and vanilla bean ice cream
The best was saved for last! We were instructed to poke a hole through that gorgeously fluffy souffle and pour a little bit of the milk shake inside.
Such a lovely spot with beautiful food, thanks for organising it Miss Piggy, and Atelier for being wonderful hosts for the night.
