August Guest Chef Dinner – Sunday 31st August – Rob Kabboord, Merricote

Jake Kellie and the Commoner kitchen team will be hosting Guest Chef Rob Kabboord (Merricote). Cooking with a tongue in cheek attitude towards the two cuisines that most influence the two chefs: Dutch, and British. They have created a menu that artfully showcases both cuisines while taking inspiration from both classic and modern cooking techniques. Not to be missed. Menu & more info here.

Get a bunch of pals together and join us for this late winter harvest feast – The Rabbit Trap, a lovely space for 8 to 10, is still available for this fantastic event.

$75 = amuse + 5 courses, wine match available on request.  6:45pm arrival for a 7pm start.
