Description
The name éléments is derived from the natural elements of fire, water and soil, components that resonate with the Hunter Valley region and are reflected in the entire restaurant experience. Executive Chef Jean Marc Pollet has created a menu driven by the food philosophy of the fusion of classic French cuisine with Australian produce. The inspired menu features local and seasonal produce executed with a French flair, and has signature dishes such as Duck and Mushroom Pie with Asparagus Spears and éléments Summer Salad. The ingredients used are of best quality and include produce from the Chef’s very own garden on his 5-acres farm and suppliers from around the Hunter Valley.
