2/5 Salted & Hung
Chef-owner Drew Nocente entices diners to re-visit his restaurant for a taste of his seven- and 10-course tasting menus. His creations are inspired by his philosophy of ‘minimal wastage’ so ingredients are used in clever ways to reduce food waste.
Take, for example, the Jerusalem Artichoke, an ensemble of artichoke, wing beans fresh seaweed, toasted buckwheat and confit egg. The dish is elevated with the use of an umami salt made from the skins of the artichoke, and finished with dried mushroom, seaweed and mushroom dashi.
The same goes for the Green Lip Abalone, cooked over binchotan charcoal and served in a pool of sourdough essence reduction. The latter is crafted using bread trimmings which undergo a brewing process before they’re cooked with vegetables and abalone liver to lend complexity to the overall dish. Book here.
