Taxi Kitchen MFWF A Great Australian Fish Tale

We were privileged to attend Taxi Kitchen's epic event, 'A Great Australian Fish Tale', in partnership with the Melbourne Food and Wine Festival. 

In a harmonious fusion of culinary mastery and aquatic artistry, Taxi Kitchen’s “A Great Australian Fish Tale” transported diners on a maritime odyssey through the bountiful waters of Australia’s wild-caught seafood treasures.

Each course was a symphony of flavors, a testament to the unparalleled quality of Australia’s wild-caught seafood. From the delicate Goulburn River trout rillettes crowned with decadent caviar to the robust Claypot rice teeming with Discovery Bay pippies, prawns, and lobster, every dish was a revelation.

But it wasn’t just about the food, cocktails and wine; it was an immersive education in the ocean’s bounty, a celebration of sustainability and reverence for the sea.

As the sun-drenched Melbourne day gently faded into lazy late afternoon, dessert beckoned—a celestial finale of Vanilla pannacotta adorned with passionfruit curd and tropical fruits, a sweet crescendo to an unforgettable culinary odyssey.
