Luncheon at The Dysart, Petersham

The Dysart is a family run restaurant in Petersham, and is headed up by Barny Taylor (Manager) and Head Chef Kenneth Culhane.

Barny and Kenneth make up a very talented duo - both enjoying good food and wines and wanting to see their guests happy. Barny displays his appreciation of wines and pairing skills and is never happier than when meeting people, showing a nature board, explaining the ingredients, the flavour balances, cooking methods - to those who are interested - and in conjunction with Kenneth and his inspirational flavours the experience is memorable. The Dysart is a showcase for the arts, including music and art, food and wine - and they also support charities.

Kenneth was a Roux Scholar in 2010, has worked under 2 Star Michelin Chefs and produces innovative dishes, touched with Asian flavours, displaying skills and love of food. He is a member of a small group of Roux Scholars who meet up under the keen eye of Michel Roux to design, buy the ingredients for and prepare a banquet to raise money for a charity, for example recently taking over the kitchens of The Mandarin Oriental in London and Tokyo.

Behind the scenes they have teams including a gardener and forager, an increasing number of individual farmers, cheese makers, winemakers and specialist producers. -
