sydney good food month: week III

Here’s the Good Food Month recap for Week III!

Eva from Sweet Sins used the InterContinental’s High Tea sample plate as an excuse for a catch up with another food blogger. Her photo provides a perfect glimpse of what to expect.

Kat from Coffee Habits ventured out for a Let’s Do Lunch at Zilver. This included their signature Peking duck and a choice between Singapore style stir fried king prawns; wok seared diced beef fillet with wasabi; red braised melting pork; braised seasonal vegetables wrapped in lotus leaf or BBQ tasting platter with barbecued pork, roast duck, soy-sauce chicken, jelly fish salad and Japanese seaweed.

Kat also managed a Sugar Hit at the One on 1 Brasserie at the Radisson Hotel. Here they serve Heavenly Morsels: roasted macadamia nut and quandong crème brûlée, mixed berry crêpe stack and 5 spice pannacotta with palm glaze.

Helen from Grab Your Fork was busy with two Sugar Hits in one night (in between two dinners)! First was the Sofitel Wentworth’s exquisite Lenôtre Opéra cake: chocolate pastry with layers of almond biscuit, decadent chocolate ganache with coffee butter cream and topped with gold leaf.

Next was the Westin Hotel’s intriguing seasonal berries in aloe vera jelly with citrus curd and pineapple mousse. This first took my fancy when Ugenie wrote about it last week. Helen and her dining pals gave it the thumbs up so I think I’ll have to try it before October ends.

Last but not least, I switched to drinking this week and tried three Cocktails of the Month: the blood orange Red October from Café Sydney, a nashi Harujuku Martini from Hemmesphere and a bungled attempt to taste the tropical Paradis Ce Soir from Industrie.

Next week is the last full week of activities, as Good Food Month comes to an end.
