There’s a special trans-Tasman chef collaboration on 9 May when Clooney head chef chef Nobu Lee will join forces with Daniel Puskas to create a seven-course tasting menu. Pukas is head chef and co-owner of Sydney restaurant Sixpenny, and was named Sydney Morning Herald Citi Chef of the Year 2018, while Sixpenny gained three hats in the Sydney Morning Herald Good Food Guide 2019.

With the menu’s focus on New Zealand’s exceptional seafood, both chefs will spend two days prior the dinner at sea in the deep south of the South Island, gathering kaimoana for the event before returning to the Clooney kitchen to create a memorable menu with their bounty.
