For centuries the pomegranate has tantalised and tempted. It’s that mix of sweet and sour, texture and colour, health and fertility, myths and legends. The likes of culinary legend, chef Yotam Ottolenghi, has put pomegranate-heavy Levantine cuisine on the map. And now is the perfect time for Australia to explore the many menu possibilities of this versatile fruit.
Later this month, an exclusive Summer Pomegranate Masterclass Lunch will be held in Sydney.
Designed especially for chefs and restaurateurs, this free lunch will help unlock the mystery of the exotic pomegranate through a very special collaboration between chefs Somer Sivrioglu and Lauren Murdoch.
Somer and Lauren will pool their diverse culinary talents to present the versatility of pomegranates in a contemporary light, sharing their techniques and insights across the whole menu. From selecting, storing and extracting the glistening, crimson seeds, to preparing dishes from finger food, entrees, mains and desserts.
The two chefs will provide both a culturally deep understanding and execution of pomegranates together with a contemporary Australian perspective.
The Summer Pomegranate Masterclass Lunch for chefs will be held at Efendy Restaurant, Balmain, Sydney on Monday 27 November at 12.30pm. Seats are strictly limited—to secure a seat contact Stewart White: firstname.lastname@example.org.
