Leading Australian sustainable chef Matt Stone is teaming up with Australian eau de vie grape spirit Feels Botanical, for an exclusive once-in-a-lifetime dining experience on 11 March.

Featuring a combination of Stone sustainable cooking techniques and a special range of Feels Botanical eau de vie cocktails the dinner brings together traditional cooking, and traditional spirit making.

Taking place at Harvest Newrybar, where Stone is Executive Chef alongside Jo Barrett, the dinner will showcase Stone’s focus on sustainability and seasonality – Stone believes wholeheartedly that we must move forward from the gimmicky ‘bush tucker’ movement and embrace these amazing ingredients in a natural way.

He said: “It’s so great to be collaborating with like-minded people, focussing on indigenous ingredients. I’m excited to be showcasing these products in Newrybar on March 11.”

As for Feels Botanical, the eau de vie utilises century-old traditions of spirit making, while adopting a progressive approach towards its production and the botanical application is enhanced by local Australian native ingredients like Davidson plum, Qaundong and Horny goat weed.

The dinner is a chance to meet with Stone, sample his menu and also speak with Blake Vanderfield-Kramer, creator of Feels Botanical about the unique, complex and elegant range of premium eau de vie blends.
