You may have heard that two Australian restaurants won some fierce kudos on the international stage, being named in the World's 50 Best Restaurants of 2017 list. Ben Shewry's Attica was placed at number 32 (as was predicted), but Dan Hunter's regional Victorian restaurant Brae pleasantly surprised everyone, moving up 19 spots to crack the top 50 at position 44.
Following his win, Hunter has announced that he'll embark on an Australia-wide tour this May to promote his upcoming cookbook, Brae: Recipes and Stories from the Restaurant. The 256-page book, which was announced before his placing in the World's 50 Best and will no doubt be all the more in demand now, will illuminate some of the Birregurra restaurant's most famed recipes — think the burnt pretzel with treacle and pork.
He'll be hitting up Brisbane, Melbourne, Sydney and Adelaide to host events with some of Australia's best chefs to chat about his journey from small-time chef to world-famous restaurateur. At Melbourne's Cutler & Co, Brisbane's Urbane and the Penfolds Magill Estate Restaurant in Adelaide they'll be serving high-end snacks with matched drinks. But in Sydney, Hunter and Quay's Peter Gilmore are pushing the boat out with a five-course meal event and matched drinks for $450.
WHEN: Tuesday May 9th 630pm
WHERE: Quay Restaurant, Overseas Passenger Terminal, Hickson Rd, The Rocks
