The Queen Street West Woollahra Association held their Annual Dinner on Monday 17th July at Chiswick restaurant on Ocean Street, Woollahra. On a cold evening, 82 guests attended the evening, which had a wait list for the first time in several years (sorry to those who missed out, make sure to book in early for next year!). As the photos show, it was a very happy evening with both neighbours and local businesses meeting and mixing, reconnecting with old friends and making new.
A glass of bubbles started the evening and warmed us all up, accompanied by delectable canapes. Large tables made the evening a very friendly affair with delicious dishes, each matched with a wonderful selection of wine. Guest’s dined on ‘Barra in a Bag’ (barramundi) and Chiswick’s signature slow cooked lamb, which just fell off the bone, served alongside an array of salads and vegetable sides, with a rich, moorish chocolate tart to finish it off, all beautifully presented by new Head Chef Francois Poulard.
President Ken Gresham welcomed everyone and thanked them for the support they give to the Association throughout the year, helping protect the wonderful community we have. He then announced a lucky door prize, kindly donated by Chiswick.
Our thanks go to the management of Chiswick and the help they gave us in making the evening such a happy occasion. They have very kindly given us the recipe for their famous slow cooked lamb shoulder to share with you to try cooking at home, or you can just go to Chiswick and let them cook it for you. Our thanks also to Eric Scott who was the official photographer for the evening, as usual, a great job.
