Bennelong

https://www.bennelong.com.au/

It’s only fitting that the very best of Australia’s produce and wine take centre stage at the iconic Sydney Opera House’s Bennelong restaurant. Celebrated Australian chef Peter Gilmore steers the diner through the diversity of the nation’s home-grown flavours introducing what he envisages as the essence of Australian cuisine.

Bennelong serves to celebrate the Sydney Opera House and its extraordinary architecture by offering a culturally significant and inspiring menu showcasing a most magnificent production of Australian food and wine.

Executive Chef Peter Gilmore explains the philosophy that drives Bennelong:

“Bennelong is all about the provenance of the food we are serving. The menu is very much crafted in partnership with the farmers, fishermen, breeders and providores from across the land with whom our chefs work together with every day. It’s a two way process: we’re responding to what’s in season and the best of what producers are bringing us, but on another level, we are planning menus a season or two ahead, working hand-in-glove with our producers to develop ingredients tailored to Bennelong’s menus.

An absolute must go to when in Sydney.

Chef, restaurateur, cookbook author & TV presenter. Kylie has been an avid champion of Australian Native Foods for many, many years.

My professional cooking career began with a four-year stint as head chef of Sydney's Wockpool, a modern Asian noodle bar and restaurant owned by Neil Perry and Trish Richards, then from mid-1998 I headed the kitchens of two cafes in Sydney, bills and bills2. Inspired by the strong sense of individuality that made these places stand out from the crowd, I began to dream about having my own restaurant one day.

In 1999, I went on a life-changing trip to China. Of course, food featured prominently, but it was a visit to a traditional Shanghai-style tea house that really moved me. The room was furnished with polished rosewood tables, complete with matching stools that fitted neatly under the tables like a jigsaw puzzle. I felt like I was inside a beautiful lacquered box, exquisite in every detail. I decided then and there that I wanted to capture this moment and release its essence in my own restaurant…

When the original Billy Kwong opened its doors, in May 2000, we breathed life into our vision of a small, energetic and vibrant eating house that served fantastically fresh Chinese food. But after 14 successful and very happy years on Crown Street, the time came to gather up our woks and move to a bigger space in Potts Point, somewhere we could grow and take Billy Kwong to the next level. In partnership with colleague David King, Billy Kwong is all about celebration, collaboration and community.  

Starting from the strong foundation of my Chinese heritage, my cooking style has been shaped by living in Australia, where we have access to some of the world’s finest produce, including seafood from pristine waters and a bountiful array of Asian fruit, vegetables and herbs. I’m never happier than when I’m at a market surrounded by amazing fresh food – which is why, every Saturday morning, you’ll find me at Sydney’s Carriageworks Farmers Market, selling dumplings and pork buns, pancakes with salt bush, and sticky rice parcels of macadamia and warrigal greens. The vibrant taste of these indigenous wild greens and herbs has been a revelation for me, as has the tender wallaby meat from the salt-dusted pastures of Flinders Island, and in recent years I have incorporated these ingredients into my food to create a distinctly Australian Chinese cuisine.

Along the way, I have been inspired and influenced by some great cooks and food writers – from my mother to Alice Waters, Stephanie Alexander, Neil Perry, Stefano and Franca Manfredi, Maggie Beer, Elizabeth David, Fergus Henderson, Rene Redzepi and Alex Atala.

Through my own books, TV series and public appearances, I seek to share the passion for food and family that has been a constant in my life.

My first book, Kylie Kwong: Recipes and Stories, introduced the wonderful home cooking, family gatherings and Chinese banquets that nourished me and helped to shape my future. Kylie Kwong: Heart and Soul traced my life with food, family and friends, from hanging out at my uncle’s noodle factory as a child to holding a steamboat party. From the response to the accompanying TV series, I realised how daunting people can find the prospect of cooking Chinese food at home, and so with Simple Chinese Cooking I sought to demystify the intricate methods and exotic ingredients that have produced one of the world’s great cuisines. The long-awaited follow-up, Simple Chinese Cooking Class, combines master classes in time-honoured Chinese techniques such as tea-smoking and pickling with inspiring recipes to expand your repertoire.

I am endlessly fascinated by travel, and the opportunity it offers to learn more about food traditions worldwide. A growing awareness of Chinese regional cooking, as well as a profound urge to reconnect with my relatives in China, has led me to return to my ancestral homeland many times. The story of my journey through the food, history and culture of China and Tibet is captured in both a TV series and a book, My China: A Feast for all the Senses. Closer to home, It Tastes Better is a celebration of the growers, farmers, fishermen, artisans and food providores behind the sustainable food I love, with simple recipes inspired by their beautiful produce.

I firmly believe that our food choices should be ethical, sustainable and supportive of both the natural and human environment. By spreading this message, and through my ongoing support for the work of organisations such as Slow Food, the Australian Marine Conservation SocietyMAD, the Stephanie Alexander Kitchen Garden FoundationOxfam and the Half the Sky Foundation, I am determined to do all I can to make the world a better place.

Bush Food Australia

https://www.bushfoodaustralia.com

Info below from their website

Prior to the white man settling in Australia, traditional aboriginal people lived off the land as nomadic hunters and gatherers for over 40,000 years. Over 1000s of generations they have acquired the skills to use the natural resources nature has to offer. Fully understanding what could be eaten, used for medicine etc. From this we now have a rich knowledge of unique natural Australian ingredients that have distinctive tastes, to this country. Some plants have been accepted into mainstream western ideas too, for their tastes, health/medical properties… From the dry arid interior to the lush rainforests.

At Bush Food Australia, we:

  • supply commercial quantities of wattle seed roasted and ground (Acacia victoriae) for the Australian native food, cosmetic, revegatation (Raw Seed), dietary supplement and pharmaceutical industries.

  • supply many other native foods and materials on request.

  • work hand in hand with the South Australian Government and private land owners to collect wild harvested seed. Permits are gained to collect on crown land under strict guidelines, to protect the environment, for future harvest.

  • are constantly seeking ways to refine our collection, cleaning, roasting and grinding methods to ensure a first grade product.

  • support research into nutrition and health, production and food technology and recipe development.

Fresh produce and value add.

Information from their website.

Playing with Fire is owned by Gus Donaghy and Rebecca Barnes. We found inspiration one day when wandering through the bush we discovered the delights of native raspberries. A trial crop was planted a few months later and was a huge success. Our appetite for Australias indigenous foods was born and still grows today. We are fascinated by the variety, nutrition, taste, colours and smells of foods available and largely ignored by white man. We operate from beautiful Ballina by the Sea in northern New South Wales and have become passionate about this regions rainforests and coastal heaths.
Some years on from our original discovery and the potential for these fruits has only grown. We have been supplying rainforest fruits for testing and research to Food Science Australia . Their research has shown these fruits are literally loaded with anti-oxidants and health-giving nutrition. Clinical trials are underway to investigate further bioactivity including antimutagenic and anti-cancer activities. we'll keep you posted....................

Tumbeela Native Foods

https://tumbeela.com.au

Fresh and dried Lemon Myrtle and Mountain Pepper Leaf and berry

Information from their website

Lemon Myrtle and Mountain Pepper, fresh or dried, may be purchased direct from South Australia’s premium grower Tumbeela Native Bushfoods in the Adelaide hills.

Tumbeela is a small but imaginative family business looking for something different, something special, something to make good food even better.

We supply premium hotels, restaurants, innovative cafes and the better bakeries and have a delightful range of native products for home use.

Lemon Myrtle leaf: what is it, where to buy it and how to use it?

Lemon Myrtle leaf, fresh or dried, is a game changer. Creative chefs are using it in stunning ways across their repertoires from entrees to deserts. Home cooks too are responding to the magic of Lemon Myrtle, using it to create new taste horizons for favourite dishes.

The leaves of the Lemon Myrtle when crushed or infused exhibit an exquisite flavour not unlike lemon, limes and lemon grass.  Lemon Myrtle has a natural affinity with seafood, chicken dishes, pork and curries. It is superb in cakes, ice cream, pasta and soups.
It makes a refreshing, delicate and calming tea. it is both versatile and unique.

Quite simply Lemon Myrtle is a winner and it is Australian.

Mountain Pepper leaf: fresh or dried

Mountain Pepper leaf is another stunner, subtle but definitive. The leaves are traded as fresh, whole, dried or ground. While not a true pepper the leaves are hot, zesty and full
of pepper like flavours. the heat dissipates with cooking, leaving the soft flavours of the Mountain Pepper sitting under the flavour of your dish.

Ideal for roasts, curries, tomato or cheese dishes, pate and pasta – infact any dish which calls for pepper.
