Chef Jamie Sutherland leads the kitchen brigade at The Cook’s Garden in North Turramurra. A favourite haunt of locals, The Cook’s Garden offers formal dining in a light, bright, sophisticated restaurant or al fresco-style dining outdoors in a relaxing courtyard.
The seasonally changing menu includes some of Australia’s best seafood. It’s hard to go past beer-battered butterflied school whiting with fries, mushy peas, a malt vinegar reduction and a house-made tartar sauce with a citrus kick – this dish really showcases how good our seafood is. For something interesting, try the panko-crumbed pork loin with fennel salt. It’s served with sticky house-made belly bacon that melts in the mouth; a salad of shaved radish, fennel, celery and burnt orange; apple chutney and pink peppercorn sauce. The orange really adds a great citrus punch.
PSST! The Cook’s Garden is perfect for a special family occasion, sure to appeal to all – from grandparents to the grandchildren!
