Sydneysiders are in for a finger-linking treat, as the Colonel himself is bringing a world-first KFC Degustation restaurant to the city. Partnering with Australia’s ‘degustation king’, chef Nelly Robinson, the lavish 11-course menu promises to take KFC lovers “on a truly unique culinary journey.”
Popping up for three nights, the KFC Degustation will elevate the iconic fast food eats to new heights in tasty and theatrical ways, with all profits going KFC’s charity partners.
Sample playful takes on the KFC classics, including popcorn chicken paired with celeriac soup, mushroom gnocchi and edible floral garnish; a ‘gravy candle’ that melts to dip your potato bun into; and chocolate mousse dipped in nitrogen.
“For the menu, I’ve taken 11 KFC dishes and reimagined how the flavours and textures come to life using my expertise in degustation menus to truly blow fans away,” says Robinson.
“From Wicked Wings cooked on charcoal fires to edible stencil art of the Colonel’s face, we have crafted a high-end dining adventure, just like guests would find at my degustation restaurant. So, we can’t wait to see their reactions to each of the devilishly good dishes.”
The KFC Degustation restaurant will be held at a secret venue in Sydney’s Alexandria, opening on Friday 1 April to Sunday 3 April.
Priced at $75 a head, guests will be served 11-courses and matched wines. 100 per cent of the profits will go towards KFC’s charity partners: The Black Dog Institute, ReachOut Australia and Whitelion. Sign up to the waitlist at reservations.kfc.com.au
