If you’re looking for something a little bit spesh and have a few dollars sitting around, then this event at Cape Kidnappers on August 17th-19th could be just the ticket.
Internationally recognised as one of the world’s top chefs, Tetsuya Wakuda of Tetsuya’s in Sydney, is coming over for one weekend to show off his oft raved about talent in an exclusive wine and food matched weekend of lavishness with Dry River Wines at The Farm at Cape Kidnappers.
The iconic Japanese chef arrived in Australia in 1982 with a small suitcase and limited English. His first job as a kitchen hand at Fishwives in Surry Hills should be a lesson to us all that every person who starts at the bottom can be great. It was here he met Tony Bilson who hired him to make sushi at Kinsela’s and this is where he learned French cooking and went out his own. Today his dishes are famed for the combination of French and Japanese styles and fresh flavours.
“I made a lot of things up and luckily for me people liked the way it tasted.”
After a journey through various building, partnerships and restaurant incarnations, he is now settled into the heritage-listed site at 529 Kent St where he got to create his dream restaurant, complete with dining rooms overlooking an exquisite Japanese garden. But wait! He has also just opened another restaurant, this time in Singapore. Waku Ghin is located in the spectacular Marina Bay Sands.
