Alila Villas Soori's Whisky Business Dinner Invitation
Alila Villas Soori will held a special dinner this month, featuring chef Brook Petrie from The Commoner restaurant in Fitzroy, Melbourne, Australia, and Alila Villas Soori's executive chef Dwayne Cheer.
The theme of the dinner is "Whisky Business", one of The Commoner's favorite seasonal menu last 2012, where they setup a full year themed dinner, each titled just like movie titles.
I'm curious whether it will be the exact same menu presented back at The Commoner, or something rather different, considering the chef Brook's tendency of using locally sourced - what's in season ingredients.
Chef Brook is well know for his "Modern British" cooking style, some even adds "Quirky" to his style, as testament of his unconventionality approach: a style most probably honed during his years as the chef of Peter Gordon's restaurant Providores in London. Peter Gordon himself is often credited as the 'godfather' of fusion cuisine.
Before working at Alila Villas Soori, executive chef Dwayne Cheer held the similar position at At.mosphere, the highest restaurant in the world at 422 metres on the 122nd floor of the Burj Khalifa, Dubai. Interestingly both chef Brook & Dwayne are from New Zealand. (byms)
