Porterhouse is hosting a one-night only Italian x Spanish feast this November
Grab your crew and your stretchy trousers, because Porterhouse is hosting an incredible four-hands dinner that you don’t want to miss. On 7 November, Executive Chef Angelo Vecchio welcomes Olé Spanish Restaurant’s Executive Chef Jesus Pascual behind the pass for an Italian – Spanish dinner that is guaranteed to delight.
Clear the whole evening, because you’re not going to want to rush this five-course meal. The chefs have worked hard to create a menu bursting with bold and contrasting flavours from both regions, complete with an expertly-paired wine selection.
It begins early in the evening with a complimentary free-flow cocktail reception. Bring your appetite, because the canapes, Moët & Chandon and Hennessy Sunset Cocktails will be flowing until the meal begins, giving you an hour-and-a-half of delicious bites and even better drinks. Take a wander around the beautiful venue, there will be specially decorated areas to snap a few photos to remember the night.

The meal itself begins with a bright Carabineros prawn tartare, served with Oscietra caviar, plankton oil, and a bubbly glass of Moët & Chandon Imperial Brut N.V. Then, a slow cooked duck egg, with 24-month smoked beef silverside, truffle and truffle soy sauce – each bite is smoky, rich and decadent. This dish is paired with a elegant and fresh Terrazas Reserva Chardonnay 2018 which offsets the richness of the food and creates a playful balance.
You can’t have a meal at Porterhouse without steak, and Chef Angelo has outdone himself with a grilled Australian striploin “ROSSININ”, served with ruby port-braised shallots, ginger bread and goose liver. A Black Angus filet mignon is pan-fried in butter and served with a generous amount of foie gras pate to complete the dish. A Terrazas Single Vineyard Malbec 2015 shines alongside this dish. It’s silky mouthfeel and notes of black fruits come to life alongside the grilled steak.
