With the rise of artisan and local produce, Cafe Opera at the InterContinental is celebrating a few of the most lauded producers in Australia with monthly degustation menus featuring a different element. A Taste of Artisan Butter with Pepe Saya is the first in InterContinental Sydney’s new A Taste Of… series, as the chefs have selected their favourite local producers to celebrate across four themed degustation experiences. Each of these seasonally-focused menus will be available for limited times throughout the year. Other featured degustation dinners include: A Taste of WA with Marron Crayfish (May 6 – May 26); A Taste of Perigord Truffles by Lowes Mount Truffiere (July 1 – July 28); and A Taste of Native Bush Tucker with Outback Pride (October 21 – November 10).
We had sneak preview of the menus to come at the launch event, sampling various dishes by executive head chef Tamas Pamer and executive sous chef Julien Pouteau. Stunningly fresh produce was highlighted by unique flavours, our favourite dishes of the night included 63 degree egg with shaved black truffle and pork belly; savoury buttermilk sorbet with popcorn and pork crackle; and Kouign Amann cinnamon mascarpone golden apple salted caramel ice-cream.
