A juxtaposition of the classic and the fresh. An evening representing the Australian-Asian community and how this has morphed over time into its current culinary expression.
The menu will take on a bold blend of classic Asian flavours, juxtaposed perfectly against modern Australian ingredients and dishes. An honest tale of the Asian-Australian journey, represented through food, wine and art.
Street artist Mike Eleven’s impressive wall mural will acknowledge the old, all the while welcoming in the new.
Knowledge of traditional Asian heritage is adopted into the new Australian landscape, presented both artistically and via Melbourne's favourite medium – delicious food and wine.
