A feast fit for a king

Chef Stefan Mailfert, Lismore Feast front of house manager Heather McDiarmid and trainee chef Paige McKay watch as NORPA venue manager Joe McKay (right) tries out some of the delicacies that will be served at the Lismore Feast on September 9.

A gourmet five-course meal, delicious fine wines, live music, good company and a beautiful garden setting under the stars. These are the ingredients that combine to create the Lismore Feast NORPAs outdoor springtime celebration of the finer things in life.

Celebrity chef Peter Conistis from Omega Restaurant in Sydney, ably assisted by a team of local chefs, is inviting people to enjoy his unique, Greek-inspired degustation menu featuring the very best of Northern Rivers produce. This includes Brookfarm macadamias, olives from Summerland Olives, rabbits from Border Range Rabbits near Kyogle, Yamba prawns and blueberries from Mountain Blue Orchard near Alstonville.

Combine these with wines from De Bortoli, specially selected to complement each dish, and you have a feast fit for a king.

Its all happening next Saturday, September 9, in the grounds of Lismore City Hall where there will be beautiful live music by Quarteto Batida, roving performers to keep diners entertained between courses, and gift bags for each and every guest to take home.

We took the Lismore Feast off our program last year and their was a huge outcry from subscribers people wanted the event back, and here we are, said NORPAs Wendy Gava. Its a truly magical dining experience that begins at twilight and meanders on through the evening. Its not only a way of bringing community together, but a great chance to relax, laugh, celebrate and enjoy an amazing original menu.

The last Lismore Feast sold out in 2004 and numbers are strictly limited. And getting in quick has its advantages. Anyone who purchases their tickets before the close of business next Monday, September 4, will go in the draw to win a dozen Nobel One De Bortoli dessert wines. Tickets are $120 per person or $100 each for tables of eight.
