To recognise and reward the recent efforts of Le Cordon Bleu students who competed successfully at the Sydney Culinary Challenge and Chocolate Showpiece Competition, Jonah's at Whale Beach hosted a celebratory brunch on the balcony of their two hat restaurant overlooking stunning whale beach.
Jonah's Whale Beach is one of Australia's most stunning ocean retreats and the only Relais & Chateaux hotel in Sydney - the most prestigious hotel association in the world.
General Manager of Jonah's Brad Daymond welcomed each of the students and gave an overview of the history of Hotel since it first opened as a roadhouse in 1929. Famed for its luxury, privacy and seclusion; Jonah's counts Sir Lawrence Olivier, Sir Anthony Hopkins, Mick Jagger, Jerry Hall and Bono as some of its special quests.
Executive Chef Alfonso Ales who has cooked alongside Ferran Adria at El Bulli and most recently with Tony Bilson at Bilsons in Sydney also presented to the students explaining the seasonally updated menu which focuses on Southern European influences and seasonal fresh produce.
Following a delicious brunch of seasonal fruit and freshly baked pastries students were photographed in the kitchen of the restaurant with Executive Chef Alfonso Ales for an upcoming article in the local newspaper.
