SEG recently hosted our second Amalfi Coast themed virtual dinner which included a 3 course alternate serve menu accompanied by classic Italian beverages.
Amalfi Coast "Out of the Box"
In total 40 couples joined us online to participate in a truly unique experience. Menu ingredients were delivered personally to each home, along with chef hats and aprons; the excitement was palpable as guests received their traditional wicker baskets, filled to the brim with goodies. Reminders were sent out early with a teaser from our VIP host, Adrian Richardson, a respected Australian chef and television presenter, well known for being the Bad Chef in Good Chef Bad Chef.
During the evening, our resident sommelier Colleen showed us how to mix the perfect Aperol Spritzer and hosted a brief wine masterclass on the legendary Ricasoli Chianti (DOCG) 2018. Adrian joined our Head Chef, Ryan in the kitchen for the “cook with us” part of the show, where guests recreated delicious Italian inspired dishes from the comfort of their own kitchens, including calamari fritti, seared barramundi with cherry tomatoes, capers, garlic & parsley and classic tiramisu. Guest dietary requirements were catered for individually, so there was something for everyone!
No Italian feast would be complete without an iconic soundtrack featuring Dean Martin and Renato Carosone classics and a surprise guest appearance of genuine Italian opera singers.
