As one of the Australian Financial Review’s Top 500 Restaurants, Gerard’s Bistro has been invited to create a dinner called Tabutha.
Head Chef Ben Williamson will take you on a culinary journey to ancient Babylonian times and will pay homage to the birthplace of cuisine. Inspired by his recent travels to Lebanon, Ben explored the untouched mountains of Chouf and the seaside town of Batroun. During this time Ben discovered two books containing age old cooking methods, ’The Annals of the Caliph’s Kitchens’ by Ibn Sayyar al-Warraq and ‘The Medieval Cuisine of the Islamic World’ by Lilia Zaouali. By using these 2000 to 3000 year old recipes, his intention is to breathe life into a lost artform through this otherworldly feast.
We invite you to join us Wednesday 11th of May in exploring the palatable history of The Middle East. Bookings are essential.
