Ms Darlinghurst strikes again with another well planned Secret Foodies event with this one being a 1920s spring soiree theme.
As expected at 5pm we receive a text message of the ‘secret venue’, Sir Stamford.
We had been to this venue before for high tea and fell in love with its décor of Georgian antique furniture so it was only fitting for the event.
As we walked inside, we could see Secret Foodies dolled up in flapper dresses. There was an open fire to the right, a nice welcome from the cold and a beautifully lit chandelier.
We sat and had a look at the décor until we were led upstairs to the rooftop where we were given a glass of St Germain Spritz.
As time progressed, canapés of mushroom and truffle arancini were served alongside Margarita and bloody Mary oyster shots while we were left to mix and mingle.
Just after 7:30 we were brought back inside and seated at round tables decorated with glass vases spilling out with white ostrich feathers.
Not long after, entrées of pork belly with spinach puree, roasted apple and shitake mushroom, accompanied by G. H Mumm champagne were brought out.
I would have to say that this easily was one of my favourite courses as the pork was juicy and the crackling just right.
The main served was roasted salmon fillet with carrot and cumin puree, sugar snaps and fennel salad, with your choice of Babydoll Sauvignon Blanc or Ingram Road Pinot Noir.
For those who didn’t fancy salmon, chicken with a side of mash and veg was served.
For dessert we were brought out the back into a room where there was a grand piano with a singer singing old tunes for entertainment.
There were glasses of La Giosia Moscato on the tables and dessert canapés of macaroons, dark chocolate mousse cups and raspberry yoghurt domes were brought around.
The night ended well, having met quite a few new people.
Hope you guys get to experience a Secret Foodie event soon if you haven’t already done so!
