Italian fave Castellana is celebrating Easter with a menu that is inspired by the flavours of Piedmont. Chose from the four- or seven-course menu and indulge in delights such as Asparagi Verdi Al Vapore con Gamberi di Fiume e Mayonnaise All’Aglio Nero e Uova di Quaglia (steamed green asparagus with river prawns, black garlic mayonnaise and shredded hard boiled quail eggs) and Osciotto D’Agnello Alle Erbe Cotto a Bassa Temperatura con Carciofi e Cardamomo (slow cooked milk fed lamb leg with artichoke and green cardamom).
Of course Easter wouldn’t be Easter without a sweet treat, and at Castellana it’s Mela Infornata con Gelato al Caramello Salato e Sedano Candito (a whole baked apple stuffed with salty caramel ice cream and candied celery). A wine pairing menu from the restaurant’s vast cellar is also on offer. The menus are priced at $780 for the four-course and $1080 for the seven-course.
