This Valentine's Day, immerse yourself in a Latin-influenced dining experience created by chef, Erik Contreras at plant-led restaurant, Alibi Bar & Dining.
Drawing on Latin culture, where drama and passion intertwine, the five-course menu is full of bold flavours to evoke romance.
Expect a glass of sparkling on arrival followed by an indulgent feast including slow-cooked kohlrabi carpaccio, grilled king trumpet mushrooms with baby zucchini, pistachio sauce and roasted petals of shallot, a charred fig salad, beetroot ravioli filled with creamy vegan feta cheese and truffle paste and for dessert, a choice between Rose, lychee and coconut raspberry slice or yogurt & blackberries compote.
Erik Contreras shares, “The ravioli we’ll be preparing is a special recipe learnt from a renowned Peruvian chef which has been passed down in his family for generations. He claims it was the dish that captured his wife’s heart, which is why it remains on his menu to this day.
“Our salad, inspired by Sydney’s summer gardens in full bloom, will also share a burst of colour on the plate, with seasonal leaves and squash dressed in a blood orange, hibiscus rosella and pomegranate dressing,” he concludes.
