Royal Saxon heralds the arrival of Spring with ‘The Venetian Connection’; a three course seasonal dinner inspired by the Italian region of Veneto. As part of the ‘Put Victoria on Your Table’ Spring Graze campaign, new Head Chef Simone Righetto has patriotically divulged a menu embracing the flavours from his hometown, showcasing the very best Victorian Spring produce.
Venetian cuisine is often said to be one of the finest cuisines in Italy because it
features a unique blend of ingredients and influences from all around the world.
For entrée, Simone will deliver Venetian style sweet and sour sardines, otherwise known as ‘Sarde in Saor’. For main, you can expect the classic Venetian dish called ‘Risi e bisi’, which simply means rice and peas, followed by a Gippsland lamb rack with herb crust, green asparagus, basil pesto and cherry tomatoes. To finish, enjoy a selection of hand crafted traditional Venetian petit fours.
The Venetian Connection will take place on Wednesday 18th September and tickets are priced at $50 per person. Also in celebration of the Spring Graze campaign, Royal Saxon will offer a produce driven Spring Graze lunch menu every to Monday – Friday. The Spring Graze lunch menu will feature a selection of rustic Italian style pastas or pizzas with a glass of King Valley Sangiovese Shiraz or Pinot Grigio, for $15.
