I must admit I did end up at this event by a pleasant accident and it turned out to be so much fun. Nardini Cocktail Mixing Challenge is an event for local food bloggers to come up with their own signature cocktail concept and ingredients, so you can imaging how boozie it all ended up by the end of the night. A very fun night in other words.
The event was hosted by the amazing wine and spirits importer Robert Dessanti from The Wog With The Grog at The Porsche Sydney South. Absolutely perfect venue, hot cars, delicious food and cocktails. I’ve also got to meet the the Sydney Oyster Girls roaming the party and presenting freshly opened oysters. What a great idea and the girls were super lovely and cute, here is their website if you would like to book them for your events and parties ( http://www.sydneyoystergirls.com.au). Now how good do the cocktails look!
Apart from meeting Australia’s leading food bloggers, we have also enjoyed all the beautiful food prepared by celebrity chef Luca Ciano. It was nice to get to know Luca, he is such a down to Earth fun guy. He presented his dishes with his own pasta sauces, they are an absolute “must buy” for all pasta lovers, Luca uses natural and organic ingredients. No preservatives at all!So i will definitely keep my eyes open for them in my local store ( hopefully they have them at About Life)
Apart from Luca’s menu we had some great selection of prosciutto and meat cuts from De Palma Salumi, local family owned business. For the dessert Pasticceria Caruso served cannoli bazooka in different flavours such as chocolate, ricotta , lemon and blueberry. Ricotta is still the best.
Here is the winner of Nardini Cocktail Mixing Challenge.
