Rick Stein to Open Australian Restaurant

rickstein_niceblokeBritish chef Rick Stein will open his Australia restaurant on October 1 at Bannisters in Mollymook luxury lodge, on the south coast of NSW.

Rick Stein at Bannisters will feature a menu that will draw on local produce and Stein’s signature ingredient, seafood.

“Ever since a memorable weekend eating Pambula oysters and flathead in Merimbula in the 1960s I’ve had the image of the clean blue sea and sweet seafood of the South Coast fixed in my head,” Stein said.

“So when I was introduced to Mollymook about six years ago I knew that one day I would open up a restaurant celebrating local fish and shellfish but keeping it really simple.”

Stein will divide his time between Australia, Cornwall and filming his cooking shows around the globe.

Bannisters was just awarded South Coast Restaurant of the Year 2009 and Winner Restaurant in Resort 2009 – awarded by Restaurant and Catering NSW.
