[dropcap style=”font-size: 60px; color: #A02F2F;”] S[/dropcap]ublime chef Christopher Grace is returning to the kitchen for a Chinese banquet extravaganza at Proudfoot’s Boathouse in Warrnambool to celebrate Chinese New Year on Monday February 8 – and we have a pair of tickets to give away to one lucky subscriber.
Christopher – who is a subscriber and supporter of Bluestone Magazine – has generously donated two tickets valued at $88 each for what will be an eight-course meal plus dessert and fruit to celebrate the start of the Chinese Year of the Monkey.
While Christopher is the manager of Proudfoot’s Boathouse restaurant, he is no longer working as a head chef.
[dropcap style=”font-size: 60px; color: #A02F2F;”] H[/dropcap]is return to the kitchen for this special event has been inspired by his extensive travels through South-East Asia and a desire to pay homage to one of the world’s oldest and most influential cuisines.
“I have seen the massive influence of Chinese cuisine in these areas and, of course, the influence the Chinese have had on Australia,” Christopher said.
Bluestone recently wrote about the impact of Asia on Christopher’s photography and painting in a profile that highlighted a lesser-known side of the flamboyant chef. You can read that fascinating story here.
