Kicking off today, the inaugural Double Bay Good Food Week will run until Monday 16 May. The week is designed to celebrate the diverse food offerings of the suburb Double Bay. Late last month I joined Deputy Mayor of Woollahra, Susan Wynne and 90 key Double Bay business owners and media at Stockroom in the InterContinental Sydney Double Bay. The General Manager of the hotel, Paul Walters, used the occasion to introduce his new Executive Chef Alex Vilches, who made an immediate impression on guests with platters of tender char grilled lamb with green peas.
The hotel is a key sponsor of this foodie initiative, and will be hosting a number of its own events including an interactive Gin Masterclass at Stillery. I’m a fan of this stylish gin bar, having already completed my own gin masterclass, which you can read more about back HERE. Guests willing to fork out $125/head very quickly HERE (it’s on tonight) will have their gin adventure led by master mixologist Grant Collins.
Tucked under the hotel, Sake Restaurant is offering up a Sake and Sashimi Masterclass on Wednesday 11 May at 6.30pm. The $95 ticket buys you a six-course meal with matching sakes. For events with a lesser spend, more than twenty Double Bay restaurants will be running fixed prices dinners between 10 – 16 May at $50/head. Participating restaurants include Le Bukhara Mauritian Indian Restaurant and Pelicano, with a full list available on the official Double Bay Good Food Week website.
Note: You can find a previous visit to Stockroom under a different chef back HERE.
