Celebrated chef Guillaume Brahimi of two-hatted Guillaume Paddington restaurant will swap his Sydney residence for the kitchen at Halcyon House as guest chef for a winter epicure escape from Friday 12 till Sunday 14 August 2016 (that’s this weekend).

The relaxing weekend will showcase the best of Australian food and wine with gourmet enthusiasts being treated to an up-close and personal weekend with Guillaume Brahimi and Paper Daisy’s executive chef and Noma alumni, Ben Devlin.

On the Friday evening, guests will enjoy poolside welcome drinks followed by dinner at leisure at Paper Daisy restaurant. With Ben leading the kitchen, the aim at Paper Daisy is to produce food of sophisticated simplicity, producing dishes that are satisfying, thoughtful and deeply memorable.

A morning master class with Guillaume will be offered the following day, allowing guests to enjoy an intimate cooking experience, as Guillaume shares some of his favourite recipes from his book, Guillaume: Food for Family, leading up to Brahimi’s showpiece dinner on Saturday evening.

For twelve years Guillaume at Bennelong wowed diners and won almost every major accolade in Australian food, as well as international recognition. Brahimi and his acclaimed team opened their new restaurant, Guillaume, in August 2014. Guillaume also has Bistro Guillaume in Melbourne and Perth and is set to open Bistro Guillaume Sydney this September.

Brahimi has been looking forward to the weekend, saying, ‘I can’t wait to get to Halcyon House in August. It’s such a beautiful, relaxed place and I’ve chosen to cook dishes that reflect that informal elegance – simple local produce cooked beautifully, with a focus on seafood.’

At Halcyon House, Devlin’s signature is confident coastal cooking with the food expressing the very best of the region’s unique produce and bourgeoning culinary reputation.

Luxury package inclusions consist of: two nights’ accommodation; breakfasts both days; welcome drinks on Friday night; a light lunch and showpiece dinner on Saturday night prepared by Guillaume Brahimi and tickets to the master class.

Package prices are for two people and start at $1,960 for a Classic room, $2,260 for a Superior room, $2,460 for an Ocean Superior, $3,060 for a Master Suite and $4,520 for a Halcyon Suite for four people.
