Past Event: Gourmet Food Weekend with Danielle Alvarez

Guest at our Gourmet Food Event held on August 17 – 19 were treated to a rare opportunity to learn from Danielle Alvarez – head chef at Merivale restaurant Fred’s in Paddington – in an intimate masterclass held exclusively onsite in our Bankisa room.

Danielle showcased two extraordinary recipes, one for Pan Fried Fish with Sorrel and Pippie Beurre Balnc and the other for a very popular Blood Orange and Hazelnut Cake. Danielle kindly shared her well-honed techniques whilst fielding questions from attendees, which gave us a true glimpse into what drives her passion in what is traditionally a male dominated industry.

To top off the weekend, Paper Daisy chef Ben Devlin collaborated with Danielle to produce an outstanding bespoke dinner menu paired with wines carefully curated by our resident sommelier.
