One of Australia’s most exciting chefs is taking over The Tamarind kitchen in Maleny for one night only this November. 

Adam Liston, of Adelaide’s Shobosho restaurant, will bring his unique Japanese charcoal cooking style to Spicers Tamarind for Spice Sessions – Shobosho Takeover on November 22, 2019, starting at 6.30pm. 

Last year, Liston collected a Good Food Guide chef hat and a Gourmet Traveller star. He is regarded as one of the rising stars of modern Australian cuisine. 

His cooking is a blend of smoke, steam and fire, the ancient Japanese yakitori traditions, and his menus take a journey through raw to cooked food, with yakitori, noodles, dumplings, bao, robata grilled and spit-roasted meats. 

Shobosho is all about communal dining, making this a group dining experience not to be missed!

Liston honed his skills in Shanghai, cooking at T8 for two years. T8 is constantly rated in the Miele Guide as one of China’s Top 5 restaurants. 

Liston’s latest venture, Joybird, recently opened in Adelaide. It’s a modern take on the quintessential suburban chicken shop, with an emphasis on ethically and sustainably sourced produce. 

“For many people this will be a rare opportunity to experience an extraordinary culinary approach,’’ Daniel Jarrett, executive chef at The Tamarind, said. 

“There’s nothing to compare this style of cooking to in Queensland at the moment. It is world class. I think those lucky enough to get a ticket will be talking about Adam Liston – and his cooking – for years to come. 

“It also fits well with the Asian fusion experience diners get at The Tamarind on a regular basis.” 

Tickets for Spice Sessions – Shobosho Takeover cost $130 per person (food only) and include Shobosho snacks, Shobosho six-course set menu and Shobosho music. To book, visit spicersretreats.com/events or call 1300 311 429.
