As the lockdown in Sydney continues, Paddington diner Saint Peter’s lockdown alter-ego, Mr Niland at Home, remains out of retirement. This week’s menu of at-home meal kits has been released – and, as we’d expect from fish-whisperer Josh Niland, it’s a doozy.
Tonight’s meal is a blue-eye trevalla sausage roll, and there is a whole lot to get us through the rest of the week. Tomorrow, August 21, expect rock-lobster gumbo, with corn bread; on Sunday there is pissaladiere (a French tart-like dish), made with anchovy.
Wednesday’s dinner is a swordfish schnitzel with burnt tomato and green-garlic bread. Then, on Thursday, pop in to pick up a hiramasa kingfish pho packed with aromatic herbs.
Next weekend, get lobster spanakopita on Friday, sashimi and king prawn sandwiches on Saturday and an impressive yellowfin tuna wellington with potato puree on Sunday.
Each meal serves two people and requires a small amount of at-home preparation. They range in price from $55 to $125. While you’re there, pick up Sydney rock oysters, wine from Saint Peter’s cellar, and desserts – including its famous lemon tart, as well as hazelnut and yuzu cakes – to go.
Pick up is from 2pm to 7pm daily. Order online.
