Entrees include pepata of mussels cooked in white wine, chili and garlic and autumn vegetable minestrone with porcini, new season’s oil and Parmigiano Reggiano.

Roast crown of duck with an apple, potato and rosemary galette, frisee salad along with vegetable tagine with cous cous and a chermoula relish will appear on the mains menu.

“Something as fuss-free as chicken liver pate or apple tart when executed perfectly, can make people sit up and pay attention,” says Little.

“Working with Merivale is a dream proposition for me. With the support of the group, the staff in place and the venue ready to go, I get the chance to take Sydney by storm and can focus on what I love most — creating and evolving recipes and working closely with the people I teach to cook [the dishes].”
