'Lyle's v's ester' Gourmet Escape Dinner
16 November 2018
Tickets on sale now!
As part of the Margaret River Gourmet Escape 2018, join us on November the 16th for a collaboration dinner by culinary young-guns James Lowe (Lyle’s, London) and Mat Lindsay (ester, Sydney).
When James Lowe of London’s beloved Lyle’s (number 38 World’s 50 Best Restaurants) invited Mat Lindsay (Australian Gourmet Traveller Chef of the Year 2018 and chef-owner of ester in Sydney) to cook at his restaurant in 2015, the two chefs hit it off and have been trying to organise round two ever since.
Three years later the pair will be reunited for one of the hottest tickets at this year’s Gourmet Escape. Diners will be treated to an unmissable collaborative dinner in the barrel room of our cellar door.
Both visiting chefs are considered some of the most exciting talents in their countries - Lowe, a former head chef at St John (London), proudly champions British cooking traditions while Lindsay is renowned for his intuitive wood-fire cooking – and will be preparing a menu inspired by the award-winning wines from Larry Cherubino.
