The stunning South Seas resort of Laucala Island and its talented European and Asian chefs are delighted to be welcoming star chef, Peter Gilmore, of Sydney’s Quay Restaurant as a guest chef at a series of culinary events at Gourmet Weekend. Peter Gilmore is renowned for his innovative seasonal cuisine and is consistently recognised in awards, with Quay winning 2013 ‘Restaurant of the Year’ in both Australian Gourmet Traveller and the Sydney Morning Herald Good Food Guide. The Gourmet Weekend, Laucala Island Fiji, will run from 11 to 14 October 2013 and is open to all guests of the hotel.
Guests of the Gourmet Weekend can stay at one of the resort’s 25 exquisite villas. The South Seas resort features a choice of dining venues: the colonial-inspired Plantation House where French-born chef Martin Klein, previously at Ikarus Restaurant in Salzburg, serves light, elegant meals based on produce mostly grown on the island’s own farms; Seagrass Restaurant run by Thai chef Khun Santi, formerly at The Mandarin Oriental, Bangkok, who creates Asian cuisine, from Japanese teppanyaki barbecue specialties to fiery Thai dishes. www.laucala.com
