Food trends are of paramount importance and this is being translated into menus across the hotel”.
The hotels signature restaurant Origins will undergo a significant transformation over the coming months, with the introduction of a new dining philosophy.
Executive Chef of Pan Pacific Perth, Graham Burst comments “It’s great to be in Australia and I am very excited to be on board at Pan Pacific Perth. In 2014, our philosophy will be focussed on creating simple dishes with star ingredients. It’s all about sourcing the very best produce, packed full of flavour and making sure we’re bringing it from the market to our guests within the shortest possible timeframe. Australia and WA in particular has world renowned beef, super fresh fish and when you throw in the likes of Manjimup truffles, you can see why chefs love to work with Australian produce”.
The new concept is very much about great service, a relaxed atmosphere and a trend towards “share food”. Small plates include freshly shucked oysters and seared scallops with tuna loin, yuzu, konbu, daikon and cucumber. For larger appetites, Tinder Creek duck breast and leg confit with mustard mash and braised red cabbage or the open raviolo with roasted Tuscan vegetables will not disappoint.
A premium grill selection is also featured, along with desserts including caramel pecan and popcorn cheesecake.
