Rockpool Perth Unveils Five-Course Dessert Degustation

Wednesday, 9 February 2022: End February on a sugar high with Rockpool Bar & Grill Perth’s inaugural five-course Dessert Degustation, available on one day only.

Reserve a seat at Rockpool Perth on Saturday 26th February at 2pm for two hours of sweet decadence.

Head Chef and former Pastry Chef Brendan Owens has curated a first-class dessert experience that pairs five sweet courses with five cocktails, for $139 per person.

The indulgent menu begins with a dessert of white chocolate and yuzu curd to enliven the palate. Next come seasonal Bickley Valley plums that are smoked above the wood-fire grill for five hours, glazed in Mezcal and served crumble-style. Sugar-laden Crack Pie is the half-way mark, followed by a nostalgic sweet-salty popcorn treat with brown sugar ice cream.

Rockpool’s legendary Valrhona Jivara Milk Chocolate and Salted Caramel Gateaux with Nohory Vanilla Bean Ice Cream makes a comeback. Arguably one of Perth’s best desserts it created headlines when it debuted on the restaurant’s tenth anniversary menu a year ago.

“We have customers who make a pilgrimage to Rockpool for our signature passionfruit pavlova, crème caramel and house-made petit fours, so we decided to create a limited-edition dessert menu as a very special treat.”

“The menu features everthing we love about desserts at Rockpool: the very best of Australian and French hand-made chocolate, seasonal fruit, house-made ice cream and cocktails that complement the flavours.”
