Fair dinkum feast for Straya Day

A trio of expat Aussie chefs have banded together to offer an Australia Day dinner to remind them of home at Balls and Company in Soho on January 27.

The celebration will be hosted by chef Bonny Porter, who trained under Neil Perry at Sydney’s famous Rockpool Bar and Grill and opened the Greek Street meatball specialist in 2015.

She is joined by fellow-Sydneysider Matt Robinson, executive chef at Dickie Fitz in Fitzrovia, and Adelaide-born Andrew Bredon, better known as Bredo, of Shoreditch feel-good fast-food restaurant Bel-Air.

The menu will include such classics as Vegemite and cheddar churros, charred split prawns, meat pie and Milo tim-tams, and will be washed down with Australian wines and beers.

“We have such a talented bunch of Aussie chefs in London and I’ve wanted to get everyone together for a while,” Porter said. “Australia Day seemed like the perfect opportunity.”
