Posted 23 Sep 2011
Following extensive refurbishment, phase one Orpheus opens early October 2011. To help celebrate this special occasion, Orpheus welcomes highly acclaimed and award-winning chef Cheong Liew (OAM) to the island.
Known as Australia’s ‘Father of Fusion,’ Cheong Liew is renowned for creating dishes with many cultural tiers. With a cunning wizardry that enables him to blend world cuisines with his Malaysian heritage, Cheong’s techniques and ingredients have come to typify ‘Modern Australian’ cuisine.
‘With ‘seasonality’ being the foundation of my cooking, the daily-changing menu on Orpheus showcases the riches of the region by honouring a bounty of locally sourced and seasonally fresh ingredients’ says Cheong.
Best suited to the island’s tropical climate, Cheong has developed a light, contemporary and refreshing menu to stimulate the mind and excite the palate. Alternatively, guests can consult with Cheong to tailor an epicurean adventure specific to their tastes and dietary requirements. Orpheus welcomes Cheong Liew from October 12th to November 7th 2011. Accommodating just 34 indulged guests at any one time, guests will be taken on an intimate culinary journey with Cheong!
