Secret Foodies hit Sydney’s eastern suburbs last Thursday, this time dining at Emmilou on Bourke St in Surry Hills. Guests began arriving at 7pm and were greeted with a cocktail on arrival created especially for the event and aptly named the ‘Ms Darlinghurst’.
Celebrity chef Chris Cranswick-Smith gave us a very warm welcome, delivering each dish and sharing his food philosophy. Chris has been cooking since the age of 14, worked in Michelin star restaurants in Spain, France and the UK and some of Sydney’s top restaurants. He is also a regular guest chef on Ready Steady Cook.
The cuisine at Emmilou can be described as “an authentic menu of modern Spanish tapas that combine international expertise with fresh, local produce”. With an impressive wine list, including a delicious Shiraz from his own fathers winery, Cranswick Estate, guests were not short of wines to compliment their dishes.
