To celebrate the release of Matt Wilkinson’s Mr Wilkinson’s Favourite Vegetables we are excited to announce we are having a degustation dinner based on recipes from the book with Matt at one of Matt’s (and our) favourite hangouts - Gerald’s Bar in Rathdowne St North Carlton next Wednesday 28th March.
Matt will of course be chatting about his book, his views on Zucchini, Pistachios & Horseradish and pretty much anything else that comes to mind; just don’t mention Barnsley FC!
How much? $60 (drinks extra)
Where: Gerald’s Bar 386 Rathdowne Street, Carlton North
When: 7.30pm Wednesday 28 March 2012
40 seats are available
To book: - call Mario or Gerald at Gerald’s Bar on (03) 9349 4748 (ignore the message about not taking bookings - leave a message or you’ll miss out!)
Gerald’s Bar was Gourmet Traveller’s Bar of the Year in 2010 and Gerald was the recipient of the Donleavy Fitzpatrick Award in 2011.
