Restaurant Gordon Ramsay comes to Aria, a three-night, never been done before residency, will take place on 8, 9 and 10 May.
Restaurant Gordon Ramsay comes to Aria will tell a story that is many years in the making. From Gordon Ramsay and Matt Moran’s friendship of over 25 years, to the decades of mentoring that has allowed for the career development of Australian and British chefs in each other’s kitchens; culminating in this moment. The residency will showcase the proud, professional relationship that both Moran and Ramsay share with Matt Abé, which started with a young, 17-year-old Australian chef in his first job in the kitchen at Aria, and who, 21 years later, is now chef patron at London’s three Michelin-starred Restaurant Gordon Ramsay.
The exclusive three-night only dining experience has been curated by Gordon Ramsay and Matt Moran. Threading together these deeply authentic relationships, Restaurant Gordon Ramsay comes to Aria will deliver a menu that showcases the very best of Australian seasonal produce with the cookery of Abé alongside the award-winning Aria team.
Moran said: “What an absolute honour to have Restaurant Gordon Ramsay do their first residency outside London at Aria. Gordon is one of my closest mates, and Abé spent five years cooking with me in the Aria kitchen before moving to London where he has cemented his place as one of the world’s finest chefs. These three nights will be a real highlight in the 23 years of Aria; I can’t wait.”
Of the collaboration, Ramsay said: “Collaborating with my dear friend Matt Moran, and talented chef patron, Matt Abé at Aria, with its magnificent views across Sydney harbour, and creating a menu that utilizes Australia’s incredible local produce whilst delivering the finesse of our 3-star Michelin menu, is a dream come true.”
Abe added: “I’m so excited to be heading back to the restaurant where my love for fine dining began. It means so much to be coming home as the first and only 3-star Australian chef, to showcase what I have learnt over the years of working for Gordon. It really is an honour to be stepping back into the kitchen at Aria, a place where I first met Gordon, and to show my earliest mentor and friend, Matt Moran, the chef I am today.”
The 7-course menu will feature signature Restaurant Gordon Ramsay dishes that will replace British produce with ingredients from some of Australia’s leading producers. Signature Restaurant Gordon Ramsay dishes on the menu are likely to include: shellfish raviolo; and a pecan praline dessert.
Aria’s award-winning wine program will be available across the three nights, as well as a premium wine pairing.
Abe continued: “I am most looking forward to working with some of Australia’s finest ingredients and meeting the growers and providers. It is going to be a fantastic 3 nights.”
