Celebrity Chef Lunch At Amisfield A Sell Out

Celebrity Chef Lunch At Amisfield Wine Company Bistro A Sell Out

The exclusive appearance of Michelin Star Kiwi chef Josh Emett at Amisfield Wine Company’s Bistro in Queenstown on February 9 is a sell out reflecting the reputation he has achieved during his career with the international Gordon Ramsay restaurants.

Emett who is Ramsay’s second-in-command and in charge of his new Australian venture, will create a five course degustation lunch matched with Amisfield’s award winning wines.

General Manager Fleur Caulton says the Bistro was booked out within ten days of the announcement of the event.

“Tickets were snapped up by people from around the country and we now have a waiting list which shows the sort of standing Josh has in the industry. He is the only Kiwi to achieve Michelin Star status and has four stars to his credit. It is an incredible opportunity for us to host him.”

Emett will be accompanied by his Sous Chef from the Gordon Ramsay at The London New York, John Lawson, who will take up a new role in March as Head Chef at the maze and maze Grill Melbourne. The maze and maze Grill Melbourne is Gordon Ramsay’s first restaurant to open in Australia and Emett has been appointed Executive Chef de Cuisine for the new establishment.

The Amisfield lunch will focus on fresh Central Otago seasonal produce to enhance the flavours of the company’s wines. Emett will discuss the inspiration for individual dishes with guests and Amisfield winemaker Claire Mulholland will introduce Amisfield’s award winning wines.

“Our kitchen staff headed by Chef Jason Innes, are particularly looking forward to the challenge of working alongside Josh,” says Ms Caulton. “Effectively it will be similar to being in the kitchen of an international restaurant.”

Amisfield considers there is significant demand for events like the Josh Emett lunch and plans to host further, similar functions with celebrity personalities.
