We were treated to a preview of 40 Days of Flavour on the rooftop Nineteen at The Star – high above the Gold Coast’s glitter strip. Chefs Tom Mumford, Winson Law and Uday Huja delighted guests with tantalising tastes from some of the program’s menus. Together they’re shining the spotlight on Queensland’s fine produce and dedicated food artisans.

Kiyomi Chef de Cuisine Winson Law served up the dish of the night – scampi sushi. The creamiest West Australian scampi did a quick 360 on a tiny Binchō-tan grill and was garnished with a touch of light soy and ginger. (Binchō-tan is Japanese charcoal that produces virtually no flames and no smoke).

Both Kiyomi and big sister Sokyo at the Star Sydney deliver an elevated take on Japanese cuisine. Their sushi specialist’s precision with top-notch ingredients guarantees seafood flavour-bombs.

Chef Tom Mumford served up rare, thinly-sliced 9+ wagyu eye fillet and sirloin. The meltingly tender beef starred with the barest minimum of accompaniment: potato crisp, rosemary and bearnaise or horseradish cream.

Serving world-class Stanbroke beef exclusively, a steak at Black Hide by Gambaro is guaranteed to be a show-stopper.

American Chef Uday Huja worked across the U.S. before what he thought was a temporary stint at the Star Gold Coast. 9 years on and he’s still amazed by Australia’s diverse produce.

Previously Chef Uday operated his own restaurant in Marfa Texas and ran silver service venues for high-rollers at the Mansion at the Mirage and The Signature Hotel Las Vegas. Now he loves nothing better than to introduce guests to the range of flavour profiles different marine environments bring to native Sydney rock oysters.
