White Night Feast

Thu 22nd August, 2019
Royal Exhibition Building
9 Nicholson Street, Carlton
Price: $198
A lavish, three-course dinner in the Royal Exhibition Building by three local culinary stars – including a Vue de Monde chef and an unrivalled dessert queen.

The Royal Exhibition Building will be lit up next week as part of the three-evening-long White Night Reimagined. Soak up its 19th-century charm at this long-table feast.

On entrée duty is newish Vue de Monde (and ex-Noma) chef Hugh Allen; he’s serving pork-and-pistachio terrine with pickled muntries and watercress. Then it’s duck braised with cider and prunes, with gratin dauphinois (a French dish of potatoes baked in milk or cream) and parsnip, by chef Annie Smithers of French restaurant Du Fermier in Trentham.

To finish, the unrivalled queen of desserts Philippa Sibley (The European’s pastry chef) is serving a golden-syrup-drenched cobbler with spiced quince.

Your ticket includes canapés on arrival, and three courses with Victorian beer and wine, and soft drinks.

After dinner, check out a free, world-first audio-visual presentation of Mad Max: Fury Road at 11pm. It will be projected onto the building.

From 6.30pm to 10.30pm.
