British chef Marco Pierre White is widely regarded as the world's first celebrity chef and was the youngest chef to be awarded three Michelin stars, which he has since returned after retiring from cooking.
He is best known in Australia for his appearances on Masterchef Australia on Channel 10 and Channel 7's Hells Kitchen and has been brought to Australia by Fairfax Events for Good Food Month.
The $290 per head, plus transaction fees, dinner features canapes of baby leek terrine, Great Southern yabby and caviar and goats cheese tortellini with pine nuts and raisins.
A first course of Manjimup figs, San Daniele prosciutto, hazelnuts and sherry jelly will be followed by a second course of charcoal oven roasted market fish with red braised vegetables and fine herbs.
The third course will be 36 month Cape Grim dry aged ribeye and 60-month Vintage rib eye, with sauce bordelaise and sides for the table, including bourbon carrots, Rockpool salads, wood fired grilled cream corn with manchego and chipotle butter.
Catherine's passionfruit pavlova will be served for dessert.
The following day, White heads to Albany to participate in Taste Great Southern so the Rockpool dinner will be the only opportunity for metropolitan Perth foodies to mix with the two renowned chefs.
The Marco Pierre White dinner is one of a series of events for Good Food Month presented by Citi, which will run throughout March in Perth.
Director of Food Events, Fairfax Media, Venessa Cowell said Good Food Month would offer an inspiring calendar of delicious events, chef collaborations, culinary and sensory experiences.
She said Good Food Month was perfect for Perth with balmy summer nights and some of the finest fresh produce in the world.
The event will celebrate what Venessa said has been a burgeoning food scene in Perth over the past decade.
This will be the fourth time the event has been held in Perth and will focus on rising WA food stars in what Venessa said was its strongest program of culinary events yet. "Perth will be set ablaze as it becomes a vibrant hub of food-filled events for every palate.
"Dozens of the country's best events will be unleashed, so clear your calendar and be ready for Good Food Month when it hits town," she said.
