Seven recipes that shaped 1980s fine dining
21.03.2017

Australia saw some bold moves in the ’80s, and we’re not just talking hairstyles. Greater cultural references started peppering the menus of our restaurants, and home-grown ingredients won a new appreciation. The dining scene was coming of age and a new band of pioneers led the charge.

GT reader dinner: Missy French, Sydney

Josephine Perry and Chris Benedet, Missy French, Sydney

Missy French, Josephine Perry's new brasserie, brings more than a touch of glam to Sydney's Potts Point. Join us for a soirée of French-accented good times.

The apple doesn't fall far from the tree. Or at least it doesn't in the case of the new generation of the Perry clan. At the ripe old age of 21, Josephine Perry, eldest daughter of Rockpool Group founder Neil Perry, has become a restaurateur in her own right.

La fille Perry's début, Missy French, brings a polished French-accented package to Sydney's Potts Point, and there's no skimping on the glamour. Grant Cheyne, a designer who has done no small amount of work for Perry père, has wrought a chic, contemporary look in shades of grey picked out in careful, elegant lighting. White-shirted staff glide between crisply clothed tables dispensing good drops from a French-Australian wine list put together by Rockpool Bar & Grill sommelier Richard Healy. In the kitchen, too, things are kept in the family, with Chris Benedet, a Rockpool chef, composing tight, full-flavoured plates.

For this month's Fine Dining Lovers' reader dinner, the Missy French team present a menu of French classics, including chicken liver parfait, suckling pig sausage with pomme purée and chocolate délice with banana and rum sorbet, all accompanied by Healy's wine matches. "Expect a great night with tasty food and delicious wine," says Perry the younger. "And hopefully lots of laughs."

Join us for dinner at 6.30pm on Monday 26 October at Missy French, 22 Rockwall Cres, Potts Point, NSW. The cost of $120 per person includes three courses, wines by the glass, Sanpellegrino water and a $10 donation to the Ovarian Cancer Research Foundation. To book, call (02) 8599 4912. For more on the OCRF, call 1300 OVARIAN or visit ocrf.com.au.
