Perth’s top chefs have tonight enjoyed a pork feast by chef David Thompson at his newly opened restaurant, Long Chim.
The chefs gathered over Mr Thompson’s world-renowned Thai cuisine for the Australian Pork Limited PorkStar event.
PorkStar’s Mitch Edwards said it was a chance for chefs to sample Thai flavours combined with modern techniques, while also celebrating all things pork.
“David Thompson has a remarkable reputation and we’re so excited he was able to host this great event,” he said.
“He’s internationally renowned for his Thai cookery and we know he shares our passion for the pig, featuring pork heavily in his cooking.
“PorkStar was developed to celebrate pork and encourage chefs to use it in their restaurants, which they increasingly have through the past decade led by chefs like David.”
Long Chim opened in Perth’s Old Treasury late last year, the latest in a long list of successful restaurants run by the man known as an encyclopaedia of Thai cookery, and featuring his take on street food.
“Tonight’s PorkStar event was a pork feast including grilled pork skewers, cured pork fritters, steamed red curry of pork and crab and roasted pork belly with Chinese broccoli and oyster sauce,” he said.
“David’s been cooking Thai since before it was one of the popular cuisines in this country and he continues to surpass expectations in terms of delivering authentic flavours and delicious dishes.”
Wines for the evening came from Swinney Vineyards at Frankland River, through Domaine Wine Shippers, with beer from Two Birds Brewing and water from Aqua Botanical.
The PorkStar national tour continues, showcasing the talent of top chefs and dishes featuring Australian pork.
