A dream team of all-Australian chefs is ready to make magic in McLaren Vale. Andrew McConnell - whose restaurant group includes Cumulus Inc. and Cutler & Co., Melbourne - and Brae's Dan Hunter will join Coriole head chef Tom Tilbury to present a three-course lunch.
Relaxed elegance rules: think vineyard views, wine pairings from Coriole and fellow McLaren Vale labels, and dishes reflecting the region's abundant produce. The trio are mod-Oz trailblazers and this lunch will capture their renowned creativity - simple ingredients transformed by deft hands and led by a generous spirit.
Tilbury grew up in McLaren Vale and returned to open fine diner Gather at Coriole after a stint on the Limestone Coast. A champion of locally grown ingredients, he has expanded the on-site kitchen garden and is embracing all the region has to offer.
The McLaren Vale Grape Wine & Tourism Association acknowledges the Kaurna people as the Traditional Owners of the Country where the McLaren Vale Region is situated today, and pays its respect to Elders past and present.
