On Wednesday, June 7, Botanic Gardens Restaurant played host to Weight Watcher's world's biggest degustation, with 120 guests enjoying 210 dishes across 12 hours.
The 210 dishes spanned five sittings from 8am to 8pm, served across breakfast, morning tea, lunch, afternoon tea, and dinner, totalling the world's largest single degustation. It was revealed during the degustation that Weight Watchers orchestrated the event to showcase the No Count option - their best-kept secret for those wanting a simple way to successfully lose weight without having to count points. The No Count option has helped thousands of Australians lose weight, improve their health and live the best versions of their lives.
Developed by nutrition experts at Weight Watchers and Botanic Gardens Restaurant Head Chef Matthew Fletcher, each ingredient on the degustation menu was carefully selected from a list of nutritious, satisfying and delicious foods included on the No Count foods list. The huge variety of ingredients including lean meats, seafood, low-fat dairy, whole grains, fruits and vegetables, ensured the degustation featured a variety of easy to recreate menu items such as Grilled Asparagus & Chive Omelette, to more exotic items such as Rosemary & Lemon Kangaroo Kebab.
Head Chef, Matthew Fletcher thought he was in for a challenge when he was first asked to create The World’s Biggest Degustation from a select list of healthy and nutritious foods, “210 courses from a select ingredient list, served to 120 people over 12 hours is no mean feat. But when Weight Watchers presented the No Count foods list, I was genuinely surprised by the variety. From abalone to asparagus, there are so many options to choose from, it gave me plenty of inspiration and license to create the ‘World’s Biggest’ menu.”
