MORE than 600 wine glasses have been polished, a six course surprise menu has been crafted to culinary perfection and some of the best in the business have packed their bags to arrive in Bunbury this weekend.
Bunbury restaurant Mojo’s and one of Perth’s premier venues, Restaurant Amuse, have joined forces to produce the perfect Sunday lunch for local diners, combining the tastes and talents of the two eateries in a six course menu.
Mojo’s will host acclaimed head chef Hadleigh Troy and his award-winning maitre de wife Carolynne, who will join a specialist wine team on the day.
Head sommelier of Melbourne’s leading restaurant Vue De Monde, Marcus Radny, will join the elite team.
Radny will return to Bunbury after starting out under the tuition of Mojo’s sommelier Jake Atkinson about six years ago.
The Sunday lunch will see guests treated to six courses matched with wines sourced from the Eastern states and Europe and plenty of food and wine banter from hosts.
Mr Atkinson said the event had developed over more than three months of back and forth between Amuse and Mojo’s as the passionate crew strived to produce the perfect taste experience.
“There were quite a few emails sent at 2am after restaurant service when one of us came up with a great idea,” he said.
“We (Mojo’s and Amuse) share the fundamental philosophy of great food, great wine and having fun.
“It’s a chance for the chefs to show what they can do and showcase what Mojo’s is actually capable of.”
Mojo’s Sunday Lunch will be held this Sunday.
