Gastrology recently attended the launch of Nine Network’s The Hotplate with Scott Pickett and Tom Parker Bowles.
We had a fantastic evening meeting the Hosts & Talent and getting behind the scenes of this exciting new show.
Estelle was the perfect backdrop for the occasion. We had a great evening enjoying fine food & wine with the team at Nine.
The sliders were a particular highlight. Lovely grilled venison and beetroot chutney sandwiched between perfectly toasted brioche buns, it was the small details that set it apart - from the slightly crispy edges of the pattie to the creamy mustard mayonnaise. Yum!
Another standout was the slow cooked beef cheek. The slow braised beef cheek was excellent - Simple, delicious and very well executed. The beef was exceedingly flavoursome and "melt in the mouth" while the accompanying puree was luxurious.
The dessert of chocolate pave, honeycomb and gold leaf was also not to be outshone.
