Slate at Stem
6.30pm - 11.00pm
Slate Restaurant head chef Max Stephenson will create a four-course dinner to be served at Hindley Street venue Stem.
Slate — the on-site restaurant of Pikes at Sevenhill — showcases the label’s wines in modern Australian dishes that shift with the seasons. Stephenson came to the Clare Valley in 2018 after a five-year stint as executive sous chef at The Source in Hobart’s Mona. At Slate he’s delivering country hospitality with a fine-dining twist, with much of the produce supplied by local farms. Expect the same approach for this 60-person dinner, which includes dessert and matched back vintage wines with each course. The sprawling Stem includes a spacious wine cellar, private dining room and wood-fired oven. Greenery offsets its concrete; gaze from the windows to the busy street beyond or enjoy the theatre of the open kitchen and cocktail station. Slate at Stem is your chance to enjoy food from one of Australia’s most promising young chefs alongside wines that have helped create Pikes’ stellar reputation.
