All the way from the shores of Bondi Beach, Icebergs Dining Room and Bar will “pop-up” at Splendour in the Grass 2019 to introduce a fancy dining option to the usual pedestrian festival fare. Restaurateur and fashion designer, Maurice Terzini, wants to combine food, fashion, art, and music to provide a pop-up experience to its customers.
Diners will be able to escape the crowds of the festival to enjoy a three-course menu from Icebergs executive chef, Monty Koludrovic, inspired by Terzini’s Italian background. The team from Three Blue Ducks, which has a farm and a restaurant in nearby Ewingsdale, will also participate in the meal preparation together with Koludrovic.
Some of the dishes available during the festival include nodini di mozzarella (mozzarella knots); grilled pickled octopus; risotto with saffron, crab, and celeriac; twice- cooked free-range chicken with ginger sauce; and candied macadamia and chocolate tiramisu.
Regarding the drinks menu, it has been put together by Icebergs sommelier, James Hird, and Matt Whiley from Scout Sydney. The guests will be greeted with a drink made with Smirnoff Infusions, a spirit infused with fruit and botanical extracts. Beer is from the Belgian brewery, Hoegaarden.
“Icebergs treasures the values of art and music – it is an integral part of our business and the heart of everything we do. Splendor in the Grass and Icebergs share the same values: music, art, friends and hospitality”, Terzini told Broadsheet.
