Pastuso and Atlas Dining present a ‘Passion for the Pacific’ – 11 September


Following on from the success of the Pastuso and Atlas Dining collaboration in March, another special dinner is now planned at Pastuso on Tuesday 11 September, highlighting fresh and sustainable seafood with Peruvian flair.

Pastuso’s executive chef and co-owner Alejandro Saravia and Atlas Dining’s head chef and co-owner Charlie Carrington will come together for a one-off event showcasing a Passion for the Pacific – Peru and Australia.

Guests can expect a sustainable seafood six-course degustation with dishes created by both acclaimed chefs, using Red Coral Seafood, Spencer Gulf Hiramasa Kingfish and Ora King Salmon.

Saravia said: “Supporting local businesses and the sustainable seafood industry is important to us, and our customers. During this special evening, some of the best seafood in the country will be showcased through Peruvian cooking techniques, with fresh ceviche and other seafood dishes.”


This event will elevate the ethos of sourcing ethical and local produce. Ora King Salmon is a New Zealand-based supplier which prides itself on sustainable practises which works closely with local council, government and stakeholders to develop Best Practise Guidelines for salmon farming. Spencer Gulf Hiramasa Kingfish is based in South Australia, at one of the cleanest bodies of water in Australia and holds ‘Friend of the Sea’ certification. Red Coral Seafood is a local family-owned business who ethically source their seafood, providing produce to some of the best restaurants in Melbourne.

Carrington has recently returned from a trip to Peru and is excited to create a special menu in the Pastuso kitchen: “I had a very inspiring trip to Peru and look forward to highlighting this at the event,” says Carrington.

Guests can choose to match their six-courses with wines from the Gippsland region, including xxx.
