The Tilbury is putting on "Fork & Cork" evenings on Wednesday nights in June, and the first event starts on Wednesday 4th June. The Tilbury, in partnership with producers such as Vic's Meats, Simon Johnson and Sonoma will use the "Fork & Cork" evenings as a way of showcasing the best products from these producers.
Offering exclusive one-off dishes, accompanied by handpicked wines, The Tilbury is the place to be this winter. To see their diners through winter, The Tilbury will hold evenings of food to dine for. Italian food on Tuesdays, Fork & Cork evenings, Sunday Brunches and Sunday Roasts.
Tuesday nights, at "Italian on Tuesdays", come and try a dish of osso bucco, seafood ravioli with shellfish bisque. Sunday roast at The Tilbury is sure to set your taste buds on high alert, with classic British pub rituals. Try pork belly with honey roast parsnip, savoy cabbage, bacon and roast potatoes. Or slow roast lamb shoulder, duck fat potatoes, spiced pumpkin, cavolo nero and salsa verde.
(What is cavolo nero? And salsa verde? Cavolo nero is also known as black cabbage, Tuscan Cabbage, Tuscan Kale, Lacinato and dinosaur kale. It is an Italian cabbage with dark green leaves which can be used in all cabbage recipes. It is particularly used as a vegetable, in soups or fried in olive oil with garlic and chilies. Italian salsa verde is a cold sauce. It includes parsley, vinegar, capers, garlic, onion, anchovies, olive oil, and possibly mustard. It is usually blended into a coarse sauce with a food processor.)
Sunday brunch will be served on Sundays at the Tilbury's, in the bar. Brunch is on from 10.00am to 12 noon. Try brioche French toast with slow roasted bacon and maple syrup, or green eggs on sourdough. After brunch take a leisurely morning walk along the Woolloomooloo Wharf.
