The evening featured wines such as Pressing Matters "R9" Tasmania Riesling 2012 and a number of great wines from Australia that clearly showed that while we are spoiled with all of the wines that California produces, Australia is home to a number of amazing wines as well. During the dinner guests tried to determine what wines they were drinking and one lucky winner one an assortment of 16 Australian Wines at the end of the evening from Wine Australia.

Gwen while being a beautiful restaurant, is also home of one of the finest buthcher shops in all of Los Angeles and Chef Stone showcase some of the finest products that Australia has to offer. The dinner opened with apricot and sherry salami and quickly transitioned into a perfectly prepared beef tartare that was created using Thomas Foods South Australian Angus Pure Beef. Next came a light and tender toothfish that was a MSC Certified Australian Glacier 51 Toothfish from Austral Fisheries. Finally the main course was finished off with a flavorful Thomas Farms South Australian Lamb that allowed Chef Stone to sous vide extraordinary ribs and should that was as tender as any meat you will find anywhere.

Dessert brought together together the great combinations of white chocolate and Thai basil along with the sweetness and tart of mango in the passion fruit glace. After a long and glorious night guests were treated to coffee with a2Milk or an espresso or cappuccino.

The week included a number of great events from G'Day USA, which helps bring together Australia with the United States.
