Melbourne's renowned Reymond family has put Cremorne on the map with newcomer Frederic. The 70-seat bistro and bar is run by Jacques Reymond's offspring – Antoine, Edouard and Nathalie – and offers all-day European dining by chef Nick Deligiannis. Join Nathalie, Nick and Good Food editor Ardyn Bernoth for a specially curated four-course dinner with matching wines followed by a Q&A.
The menu will straddle the best from both the bar and restaurant offerings, starting with a canape of sweetcorn madeleines, described by reviewer Gemima Cody as hot, fluffy little cornmeal paws, studded with sweet kernels and layered up with a spanner crab bound in mayo; then moving onto the lauded pork terrine, sticky and rich and fried on one side. Mains will be a choice of glazed lamb scotch with roasted cauliflower puree and stem greens, or snapper a la plancha with zucchini puree, fish bacon and dried cherry tomatoes. End on a sweet note with a taste of Greece: golden-fried loukoumades alongside a brown butter anglaise.
