Park Hyatt Sydney 25th anniversary dinner

Ross Lusted, Alessandro Pavoni and Franck Detrait

Sydney's Park Hyatt has had its fair share of culinary stars, and on 15 July chefs past and present will prepare a special dinner to mark the harbour-side hotel's 25th anniversary.

Franck Detrait, the current executive chef of The Dining Room, will be joined by Hyatt alumni Ross Lusted of The Bridge Room and Alessandro Pavoni of Ormeggio, along with pastry chef Fabien Berteau of the Park Hyatt Paris-Vendôme, who is being flown into town for the occasion. Together their eight hands will conjure up a four-course meal, with Park Hyatt sommelier Filippo L'Episcopo matching the wines.

Each chef will prepare a dish that reflects their style of cooking, encompassing "seafood, Italian and classical".

"I think it's really nice to see how three chefs and a pastry chef who cook quite differently all have a different interpretation about what dining at the property is all about," says Lusted.

For Lusted, who cooked at the Park Hyatt Sydney in the late '90s, the return to the kitchen is an exciting one. The establishment, he says, "has such a connection to the harbour and such a connection to Sydney".

And with proceeds being donated to Camp Quality, Heart Research Australia and SIDS and Kids, it's an event to feel good about, too.

"It's going to be an eclectic dinner," says Lusted, "in terms of how we fit and how we have evolved since we've been there and left there."

8 Hands in The Dining Room at the Park Hyatt Sydney will be held on Wednesday 15 July 2015. Seats are $295 per person, including hors d'oeuvres and Champagne. For more information, contact The Dining Room: (02) 9256 1661 or phsydney.diningroom@hyatt.com
