For just two nights next week, celebrity chef Analiese Gregory will join forces with Hearth at The Ritz-Carlton for five courses that showcase WA’s most exciting produce and suppliers.
Originally hailing from New Zealand, the trailblazing chef spent years working in Michelin-starred kitchens – The Ledbury, Bras, Mugaritz and Le Meurice – before finding her way to Tasmania, where she headed up Hobart’s highly acclaimed Franklin Restaurant and honed her love for foraging and wild cooking.
Analiese has featured on Gordon Ramsay: Uncharted as well as her own 2021 SBS series, A Girl’s Guide to Hunting, Fishing and Wild Cooking, both of which showcased the island’s rugged terrain and unique culinary offerings. In the same year, she released her cookbook How Wild Things Are: Cooking, Fishing and Hunting at the Bottom of the World.
“One of the most exciting things about cooking for me now is discovering unique ingredients that are new to me or that I don’t often encounter,” she told us ahead of the dinner.
“The produce of Western Australia definitely comes into this category and guided by the team from Hearths’ passion for sourcing and for cooking over an open fire I’m anticipating a great collaboration.”
“Analiese is one of the most exciting chefs of her generation,” Hearth’s Executive Chef Alberto Cuzzit added.
“Her mix of refined European-trained fine dining techniques and knack for marrying them with rugged native ingredients has resulted in a truly remarkable take on our Western Australian produce here at Hearth.”
Taking place for two nights only on October 25 and 26, head to the Hearth website to get tickets to this bucket-list dinner.
