Gaggenau Tuesday Test Kitchens hosted in The French Kitchen

The Gaggenau Tuesday Test Kitchen is a monthly Test kitchen series offering innovative off menu dishes designed and delivered by chef Sid Sahrawat and his team. 

Our restaurant’s collaboration with the luxury German kitchen appliance brand Gaggenau continues. This very special dining occasion offers up a tantalising taste from all three of chef Sid Sahrawat’s restaurants – Sid at the French CaféCassia, and  KOL.

The degustation format remains, with a six-course tasting menu, plus canapes to start. Two innovative dishes will be presented from each of the three restaurants - modern Indian cuisine (Cassia), contemporary New Zealand cuisine (Sid at The French Café), and Indian-influenced cuisine cooked over fire, from the most recent addition to the Sahrawats’ stable, KOL. 

Over the course of the evening, diners get to see Sahrawat and his team cook, plate, and introduce each dish in an intimate environment designed to encourage interaction, both with the chefs and other diners.

The menu for the Gaggenau Tuesday Test Kitchen changes each month, depending on the seasonal availability of produce and what happens to be inspiring the chefs. 
Priced at $190 per person, the Gaggenau Tuesday Test Kitchen includes canapés, the six feature dishes, and the choice of a glass of champagne, Seedlip non-alcoholic cocktail or beer on arrival, as well as water. A wine match is available for an extra $140 per person.
