Stefano cook’s at Geralds Bar with matched beers

Stefano cooks at Gerald’s Bar on Tuesday 9th August.  Bookings (03) 9349 4748

Tuesday’s night’s at Gerald’s Bar are turning into “Guest Chef” nights. Apparently it’s Chef Peter’s night off, so Gerald will often let some other folk into the kitchen to cook for the lucky ones.  Recent guest chefs have included Matt Wilkison (Pope Joan) and Nic Poelaert (Embrasse), and a Jamaican themed evening which afforded me the chance to try some “Stamp & Go” fritters and traditional curried goat.

The next guest chef to brave the Gerald’s kitchen is Stefano de Pieri from Stefano’s in Mildura who will offer 4 courses matched with Mildura Brewery Beer.


Salad of Crystal Bay Prawns, nashi pear, caramelised macadamia nuts

Honey Wheat Beer

Risotto with wild mushrooms

Desert Lager

Beef cheek braised in Mallee Bull, spiced crumble, bone marrow

Mallee Bull

Chocolate Olive Oil Cake, Coffee Anglaise

Choclate Stout


4 courses for $60 including beer

Disclaimer: I am not receiving any goods, services or cash to write about this event.  I’m writing about this event because I believe it is a value-for-money evening that offers something a little bit different.
