Marriott Pool Grill–Dinner with Audra Morrice, Chef and Judge on MasterChef Asia

[Media Invite]

Are you a fan of the MasterChef series? Ever wanted to dine with the accomplished chef participants, or even with the judge? Well now you can spend a culinary evening with Audra Morrice. She was a finalist on MasterChef Australia in 2012and is now a resident judge on MasterChef Asia. Since then, she’s gone on to start her own catering business, launched a range of natural, gluten-free jams, and even authored cookbooks.

From 26 October to 29 October 2017 only, you can enjoy a 5-course Wine pairing dinner featuring the best of Australian produce prepared in Audra’s signature eclectic Asian cooking style. The ever friendly and bubbly Audra will be mingling amongst the diners, taking pictures and signing autographs of course. And in case you were wondering why Audra isn’t cooking, well remember that much of the food needs to be prepped even prior to the dinner service.

Pool Grill, Level 5
26 to 29 October 2017

5-Course Wine Dinner
6.45pm to 9.30pm $128nett per person (Inclusive of canapés and wines)

$128nett is really not a bad price considering it’s Marriott Hotel, and you get 5 wines. Quite a deal actually! Check out sneak peeks of the food I tried yesterday. Needless to say, the food was really enjoyable, and the star of the show for me has got to be the melt in the mouth beef short ribs. I’ve dined at Pool Grill a number of times, and never have I had a bad meal there. Scroll down for the video for exactly how tender the beef was.

Misato– Fabulous and affordable Matcha desserts, and they aren’t a cafe!

Misato is tucked away right inside The Centrepoint, where the new Gastro+ area is (or where the old Marks & Spencers was). I’ve been seeing Misato pop up on my social media feeds and was wondering if it is just a fad. I have to say, after having tried their food, this place is worth a visit due to the affordable pricing, the fabulous matcha desserts and the exquisite dinnerware that makes you feel like you are dining at a posh Japanese restaurant.

I am told they spent $400k for the dinnerware alone when setting up the restaurant! It is a pity that most people will not realise this when walking past because the restaurant decor looks rather casual to the untrained eye. So you heard it here first! Please go check out Misato and enjoy the atas food at casual prices!

Misato - Matcha Bavarois (Premium green tea French pudding) $7.80  (2)

Matcha Bavarois (Premium green tea French pudding) $7.80

Back to the Matcha desserts. You might have seen this wobbly Matcha Bavarois on Instagram. This is not merely an Instagram-worthy dessert, it actually tastes as good as it looks. The matcha taste comes on strongly (very good quality Nara matcha imported from Japan is used), and the pudding is smooth and somewhere between soft and bouncy, if there can be such a thing. It’s almost like eating matcha ice cream except in pudding form. Every bite was savoured! And it only costs $7.90!

~~~ Arteastiq ~~~

Arteastiq - Two Way Lobster (Lobster Thermidor and otah stuffed lobster shell, served with barley risotto) $38

 Two Way Lobster (Lobster Thermidor and otah stuffed lobster shell, served with barley risotto) $38 

This pretty as a picture lobster dish was equally tasty. I really liked the lobster thermidor half, but I was thankful to still have the otah half, or else the whole dish might have been too creamy. It’s not common to see barley being used as the starch, but I think it complemented the rich thermidor and otah flavours. I also liked the bouncy firmness, and hey barley has many health benefits which is great!
