The Dux Inaugural Series completed its last week in late June and I have been working furiously to put finishing touches on a new series menu and new available dates for Dux Series 2. Part of the delay has been a very late run of produce this year due to the oddity of weather - everything seems to be runny 2 weeks later than normal.
With the Series 2 menu, the focal point for the dinner derives from the romantic French vision of storytelling through food. Without going into too much more extraneous detail, I've been batting around a name for the new dinner series and ended up with something called: Summer Landscapes.
Here is a preview of the menu, of course there is a chance of changes pending a complete trial week in the kitchen (including an easy option for all vegetarian). Hopefully reservation dates and finalized menu to appear next week!
