Australian Celebrity Chef Joel Bickford Turns Up The Heat At The District Grill Room & Bar
Australian guest chef Joel Bickford from The Gantry, one of Sydney’s most sought-after fine dining experiences, is currently working his culinary magic at The District Grill Room and Bar, Bangkok Marriott Hotel Sukhumvit. With passion and respect for regional ingredients, the executive chef is known for creatively heightening simple dishes with elements of surprise. His short visit at the steakhouse entails a true Australian escapade with imaginative dishes excellently paired with wine by the South Australian Jacob’s Creek.
Start the meal with a light platter of juicy crab meat wrapped around thinly sliced kohlrabi. Complemented by salted cream and salmon caviar, each bite offers a refreshing burst of flavours that goes well with a glass of Reserve Chardonnay, Adelaide Hills. If you’re in an Aussie spirit, opt for chef Bickford’s kangaroo tartare with Reserve Shiraz from Barossa Valley. The meat is harmoniously accompanied by saltbush leaves, creamy egg yolk and sour cream, in which muntries (native cranberries) give the serving a vibrant zest. Our pick for the main course is beef, slow-cooked to a perfect, succulent medium alongside a rich and smokey black garlic sauce, velvety mashed potatoes and pickled greens. A truly delightful combination of flavours, it pairs beautifully with Jacob’s Creek’s Double Barrel Cabernet Sauvignon. The wine, which is uniquely finished in aged Irish whiskey barrels, complements the menu with its integrated tannins and caramelised sweetness. End the meal with a sweet serving of bananas, caramel, spiced milk and macadamia, or a more refreshing alternative of custard apple, pear and honey, both perfect with sparkling Moscato.
The Australian wine and dining experience is available today until 3 September, 2016, at The District Grill Room and Bar, Bangkok Marriott Hotel Sukhumvit. To reserve, call 0-2797-0000.
