O’Brien Glass on Cockatoo Island

Forte was at one of our favourite venues, Cockatoo Island, catering O’Brien Glass’ ‘Best of Australia’ Dinner. After a scenic 90 minute cruise around the harbor guests arrived on the Island ready for the delicious array of food

Upon entry guests enjoyed Australian sparkling wine and an antipasto selection whilst admiring the stunning view from the Navel Store courtyard. Guests then made their way into the white-wash-blue hued room to take their seats before the entrée of Crystal Bay king prawns with watercress & tomato salad & spiced gazpacho dressing, Slow-roast pork belly w caramelised fuji apples & salt crust crackling and Bocconcini & truffled mushroom tartlet, shaved fennel salad, lemon dressing was served.

Moving on to the main course, guests were delighted by Corn-fed chicken ballotine with pistachio & apricot casalinga, parsnip crisps &sherry vinegar jus, a Smoked sea-salt crusted lamb loin with heirloom tomato, buckwheat & green olive tapas, or for the vegetarians a Goats cheese gnocchi with caramelised pumpkin, sage & toasted pinenuts.

Formalities proceeded the main course whilst the O’Brien team anxiously waited to see who had won the glazier’s competition and the trip to Italy to compete in the world championships!

A delicious dessert of Soft passion fruit meringue with sour cherries & rhubarb and Dark chocolate opera cake with smoked pecan brittle soon followed

Forte enhanced the rustic look of the Navel Store with soft blue lights and situated 4 plasma screens to play the video presentation of the recorded glazier competition. Overall it was an incredibly successful event enjoyed by all!
