A KFC drumstick dusted in gold and sprinkled with quinoa.
That’s right, the La Di Da Drumstick (aka Fried Gold) is just one of the 11 unique dishes Aussie KFC fans can experience as part of the fast-food giant's world first degustation restaurant in Sydney.
Developed in partnership with chef patron and owner of Sydney's nel. restaurant, Nelly Robinson (aka Australia's degustation king), KFC fans will be taken on a very different culinary journey that sees the Colonel's finest feeds elevated to new heights in theatrical and playful ways.
The 11 dishes will feature popular KFC menu items and ingredients, with one of the most "mind-blowing" being a gravy candle that literally melts, allowing you to dip your potato bun into the “wax".
"We wanted to take our renowned Kentucky Fried Chicken to the next level to showcase the fresh, high-quality food we use every day in our restaurants," Kristi Woolrych, CMO at KFC Australia.
"What better way than to create a la-di-da 11 course Degustation experience. The tasting menu will feature our most iconic menu items in new decadent and surprising ways through a world-first culinary experience that we know our fans will go crazy for.”
nel. restaurant owner Nelly Robinson described creating the degustation course as a "dream come true”.
"As a lifelong fan of KFC, creating an 11-course degustation with their most-loved menu items and elevating them to new heights has been a dream come true," Nelly said.
"For the menu, I've taken 11 KFC dishes and reimagined how the flavours and textures come to life using my expertise in degustation menus to truly blow fans away.”
Degustation sittings will be held each evening at 5pm and 8.30pm at a secret venue in Sydney's Alexandria for three nights only. KFC is donating 100 percent of the profits to charity.
