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.

Audra’s Signature Toss with Tasmanian Salmon Sashimi, Crispy Fish Skin, Micro Herbs & Citrus Soy Dressing.
Think lohei/yusheng but with the most generous pieces of salmon sashimi ever!! Actually I kinda like this savoury version instead of the sweetened versions from Chinese New Year yushengs. Of course for CNY, they are sweetened to symbolise a sweet and smooth year ahead.
Crisp Szechuan Pepper Pork Belly ”sang Choi Bao” with Pickled Vegetables, Nori & Honey Chilli Miso
Get your hands stuck in and make your own bao!
Pan-seared Kuhlbarra Barramundi with Black Bean XO sauce, Spring Onion & Micro Coriander
Really fresh tasting and tender.
Lemon Sponge with Citrus Cream, Yuzu Curd, Yoghurt Sorbet, Meringue & Lemon Verbena
A very zesty finish to a delicious meal. I love it when desserts are not all cream, but provide a substantial bit of sponge for me. I’m traditional this way.
Oh not forgetting the canapes before the meal started. There was another cream croquette thingy which was piping hot and so delicious, but I didn’t manage to get a picture of it.
