October Guest Chef Dinner – Sunday 26th – Victor Liong, Lee Ho Fook

Jake Kellie and The Commoner kitchen team will be hosting Guest Chef Victor Liong (Lee Ho Fook). Out adventurous chefs will be asking you to embrace some madness… Art, cuisine, culture, and madness in both the literal and the metaphoric sense will be our sensory guides for this magical cross-cultural journey. Courses will incorporate elements of the colour orange and draw influence from Holland and the Dutch colonies of the Indo-Chinese regions including Sri Lanka, Malacca, Borneo, Macau, New Guinea, and Indonesia.

Get a bunch of pals together and join us for this spring fling feast – The Long Room, a lovely space for up to 14 people, is still available for this fantastic event.

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