In celebration of Valentine's Day, Swissôtel Sydney's Executive Chef, Joshua Askew, has created a sumptuous special dinner at the hotel's signature restaurant, Jpb. Featuring five plated courses, and accompanied by a glass of Chandon Rosé on arrival, guests are invited to begin a new chapter of romance in an elegant setting.
As the evening unfolds, guests are treated to decadent amuse bouches including a salmon roe and crème fraiche bellini, followed by entrées of butter poached Balmain bugs. The selection of mains includes locally sourced Cape Grim beef fillet, or line-caught snapper on a bed of fennel and heirloom tomatoes. The dining experience concludes with the sweet indulgence of a coconut mousse, accompanied by raspberry crumble and white chocolate.
The Valentine's Day offer at Swissôtel Sydney's signature restaurant Jpb, is available on Friday 12th and Saturday 13th February 2016, for just $99 per person.

Chef Joshua brings a youth and creativity to the menu that highlights his natural talent and his philosophy for maintaining the integrity of ingredients. His commitment is evident through his dedication to sourcing local produce and the network of relationships he has developed with leading suppliers.
