The Lux De La Luna Dinner is part of ten-day festival WONDER, which celebrates large-scale art and performance in the outdoors from October 6–15. This year’s festival will see large-scale installation Borealis by Dan Acher illuminate the night sky and layer HOTA’s Outdoor Stage in colour, light and sound, reminiscent of the Northern Lights. The Lux De La Luna Dinner is an exclusive opportunity for curious culture seekers and epicurean adventurers to experience the dazzling installation while being taken on a four-course culinary journey with paired wines curated by Palette’s executive chef Dayan Hartill-Law.
The flavour-packed feast kicks off at 6:00 pm with a selection of sumptuous snacks including Quandamooka oysters cooked over apple-wood coals with fish XO sauce, bay lobster glazed with lilly pilly juice, pork belly grilled with house-fermented chilli and topped with smoked salmon caviar, and buenelos with carrot and kombucha jam. Once diners are seated, an entree of Burleigh Baker sourdough with caramelised smoked butter will grace the table, alongside Cristal prawn and tuna tartare with kohlrabi, buttermilk and lovage oil. Sure to make mouths water, the main affair is an Alba lamb roasted over peach wood with pea mousse and mint gel, served with triple-cooked chips and a green goddess salad. Last but not least is a surprise dessert, which will cap off the night on a sweet note.
Accompanying your flavour-packed feast will be a bounty of entertainment, including awe-inspiring aerial acts courtesy of the cirque performers at Aerial Angels and roving performances by creative misfits the VOIIID Collective. There will also be DJ beats filling the air thanks to Joy Blu and live tunes from six-piece psychedelic disco band Brain Electric. Talk about a party!
This limited-edition dining experience sold out quick-sticks last year, so if you’re eager to feast under the stars, you best get a move on! To grab your tickets to HOTA’s exclusive Lux De La Luna Dinner, head to the HOTA website.
