Majestic Repast on Roaring 20s Menu
Dressed in their most elegant 1920s finery, festival goers, fashionistas and foodies will graze from shared platters under the magnificent vaulted ceiling of the Hydro Majestic Hotel’s Majestic Ballroom on the finest fare of the region prepared by the Hydro Majestic kitchen team as well as other exceptional local producers.
The banquet will begin with a shared feast of antipasto from Ambermere Restaurant.
The Hydro Majestic kitchen team will present a main course feast of pork and rabbit rillettes with toasted brioche and hand-churned butter from sister property Parklands Country Gardens & Lodges; poached ocean trout, lemon and caper dressing; Beef Wellington, mushroom duxelle, horseradish crème fraiche with asparagus, beans, and snow peas, EVOO and Pear, melon, radish, roquette salad with goats cheese dressing.
A selection of cheeses from The Carrington Cellars & Deli will follow and an indulgent dessert from Josophan’s Fine Chocolates will finish the meal.
Live entertainment and dancing is sure to bedazzle, and a fashion parade of exquisite 1920s clothing will add an extra course to the long lunch menu. Prizes will also be up for grabs for best dressed lady, man, couples and hats.
The upmarket repast will be held after the Charleston for Charity community dance event in front of the Hydro Majestic Pavilion at 11am. (Go to The Hydro Majestic website to register)
