Porterhouse by Laris – Langoustine Workshop

After our steak workshop with David Laris, we return to Porterhouse by Laris at California Tower again for another langoustine workshop.

Same as our previous experience, we are settled in front of the communal table with some live langoustine and a temporary cooking station.

To start, we sample a ceviche made with chopped fresh langoustine, lobster, red snapper, Thai chili, lime juice, coriander and some mango salsa. The presentation in a martini cup is indeed very elegant.

Another appetizer to follow is a minced langoustine mousse, plump and juicy, which has been cooked in Japanese bonito flake stock and served with a flavorful sweet soya sauce that is further garnished with white sesame seeds and seaweed.

Aside from the langoustine ceviche, another favourite of the day is the green peas risotto. The Italian short-grain Arboria rice is excellently cooked al dente that is accompanied by a creamy and parmesan-cheesey green pea base, beautifully topped with a generous piece of langoustine, green snow peas and foam of mint.

As usual, our workshop is completed with a final sweet treat from the chef, which is a pistachio mousse with chocolate cookie crumbs and chocolate sauce on top.

It is always delightful to join their handy cooking class with celebrated chef David Laris at this contemporary and modern Australian steakhouse.
