Welcome to Rydges Kitchen Rules Cairns. In the best tradition of MKR’s Manu & Pete, 'bonjour' and 'g’day', and in today’s cook off we will be pitting Lilo Restaurant at Rydges Plaza against Sea Level Food & Wine restaurant at Rydges Tradewinds against CHB Restaurant (Coral Hedge Brasserie) at Rydges Esplanade… and we will see if these restaurants can cook selected dishes to ‘parfekshon’ and receive ten out of ten. Bon appetit!

Firstly, CHB at The Esplanade

For entrée, the Roasted Butternut Pumpkin Soup (with spiced Dukkah and Kuranda honey cream)…

For main course, the Seafood Bouillabaisse (local seafood simmered in a tomato and saffron broth – reef fish, prawns, calamari, scallops, mussels, garlic croutons & roullie)…

For dessert, Coconut Crumble (mango & apple with vanilla bean ice cream)…

And Sea Level Food & Wine at Tradewinds

For entrée, Calamari (lightly crusted & flash fried, tossed with lemon pepper & sea salt, served on a rocket & apple salad with lime aioli)…

For main course, Australian Wild Caught Barramundi Fillet (crusted with toasted macadamias & Daintree lemon myrtle, served on a bed of rocket and garlic mash)…

For dessert, Death by Chocolate (chocolate marquise mousse with a hint of Cointreau layered on a milk chocolate disk then wrapped in white chocolate & served with ice cream, finished with lashings of white & dark chocolate sauces)…

And finally, Lilo Restaurant at Rydges Plaza

For entrée, the Home Smoked Duck Breast (with baby beetroot, mandarin & candied walnut salad)…

For main course, the Grilled Lamb (lamb cutlets on smashed sweet potato with almandine broccolini & mint scented jus)…

For dessert, Boozy Peach (white chocolate and Bailey’s semi-freddo encased in a duo of chocolate with poached pear and summer berries)…

And the winner is… anyone who dines at any of these fine establishments! Parfekshon!!!
