Art is an expression; an expression of emotion, perception, culture and life – and Tetsuya Wakuda has proven to be, is an artist. His story speaks of a land of rising sun, the nurturing soil of Australia, resilience and honor. Every detail, painted in the textures, tastes, smells and sight of each plate; entrancing our hearts with every bite.

A Fresh Start With Home at Heart – Masterfully sliced Leather Jacket accompanied by chilled lightly salted ponzu jelly and spring onion.

???????????????????????????????

A Reflection From The Sea – freshly marinated sweet Botan Shrimp, Sea Urchin and crowned with Oscietra Caviar, served with a Mother of Pearl spoon. Cool raw crunch of sweet prawns with creamy soft sea urchin and the popping saltiness from the caviar.

???????????????????????????????

A Tribute To Thy Neighbour – slow cooked New Zealand John Dory with char-grilled Eggplant. Such a delicate fish that melts on the tongue with an earthy smoky sauce and soft eggplant.

???????????????????????????????

A Taste Of The Mediterranean – Seared Australian Abalone upon a bed of Fregola and Tomato broth. A perfect amount of chew to the abalone with a fragrant, warm and wholesome broth of al dente fregola and sweet bursts of tomato.

???????????????????????????????

Lessons In French – seared Canadian Lobster slowly infused with Tarragon, wine and miso. Tender and moist with a savoury flavour complex.

???????????????????????????????

Practising The Art of Perfection – Pan-Seared Amadai, Maitake and Charred Leeks. Scales retained for a extra crispy top, hide a delicate and succulent fish with fragrant mushrooms and earthy leeks.

A Marriage Of Past and Present – Aburi Tasmanian Ocean Trout with Chilli and Citrus Soya. Tender with a smoky and crisp outer texture with a kick of chilli, topped with finely grated radish infused with citrus soya.

An end to the savory dishes with Mother and Father – Silk threads of somen with myoga and bursting and moist junsai in a light dashi broth; and warm gyokuro for a palate cleansing finish.

From Sun And Soil – Tasmanian Leatherwood Honey Ice Cream upon Lemon Granita and Gin Jelly with a wafer praline disc. The taste of honey runs clear against the crisp, harmonious lemon and warming gin jelly.

The Silver Rise – a dark chocolate ganache encases soft milk chocolate mouse, vanilla mousse with macadamias and a soft sponge base.
