Having made his name at acclaimed Gold Coast eatery, Blue Door on 5th, hatted chef Dylan Cashman is ready to bring his culinary expertise to Sydney. Not that he's a stranger to the city – Cashman honed his craft at Sean's Panorama and the now-closed Paper Daisy – but with his new pop-up concept, Blue Door Sundays, he's onto a new thing. 

Beginning on Sunday, September 20, Cashman will host five-course degustations around the city, paired with a musical artist and matched wine. The inaugural event will kick off to the musical stylings of classical concert pianist Van-Anh Nguyen, who'll serenade diners as they amble through a long, languorous lunch at Manly's the Herring Room. Cashman aims to create a sensory experience through the combination of a carefully curated degustation, genre-spanning musical accompaniment and flowing drinks. Settle in for courses inspired by his seaside travels around the Mediterranean, including a Negroni-inspired white fish crudo and line-caught squid carbonara paired with Italian wine. The event will be limited to a maximum of 40 people. 

Book in for the first Blue Door Sundays event now for $220 per person – and check back in for details on where it'll pop up next. 

Holy moly. This delivery service is dropping of boxes of creamy, crisp-shelled cannoli to your door
