Four great chefs will be teaming up soon for a $190-a-head showpiece charity 4-course dinner soon, with each chef creating a dish for the event.

Readers of these pages will know of Jason Saxby of Raes at idyllic Wategos Beach, and Alastair Waddell from hinterland restaurant Harvest, who is well known for his wild-foraged menus. They are travelling north to join executive chef Jason Barratt from Paper Daisy, the award-winning restaurant at Halcyon House in Cabarita. Travelling down from Burleigh Heads will be Alex Munoz of Restaurant Labart.

It will all be happening on Wednesday 4 September at 7pm at Halcyon House. Four Chefs One Mission is a four-course showcase dinner created to raise funds for OzHarvest, Australia’s leading food-rescue charity, which collects excess quality food and delivers it to more than 1,300 charities for people in need. 

With a menu focusing on seafood and sustainability, the Four Chefs One Mission dinner at Paper Daisy aims to assist OzHarvest with their mission of feeding the hungry and diverting food waste from landfill. Barratt, Waddell, Labart, and Saxby will each showcase their creativity to present a dish that utilises ingredients and byproducts that are traditionally discarded in commercial kitchens in order to raise awareness of food wastage. 

Paper Daisy’s executive chef Jason Barratt said of the evening, ‘Guests are in for a treat at this event. Collaborating with Alastair, Alex, and Jason is always fun, but it’s not easy getting us all together.

‘We’re really excited to join forces on this one as food waste is a cause close to all our hearts and OzHarvest are doing amazing things in this space and we’re happy to be in a position to support them,’ he continued. 

During the Four Chefs One Mission dinner, guests will also have the chance to win a stay at Halcyon House, with the boutique hotel auctioning off a two-night stay at their property to further raise funds for OzHarvest. 

Tickets to Four Chefs One Mission are $190 per person and include a showpiece 4-course dinner with a selection of wines, beers, and cocktails. With limited places available, book today by visiting halcyonhouse.com.au/upcoming-events/ or call Paper Daisy on 6676 1444.
