Good things happen when you pair Alanna Sapwell’s pop-up restaurant, Esmay, with Melbourne’s hatted wine and dine masterpiece, Bar Liberty. Both have a focus on seasonal produce, and both live on that axis where creativity meets comfort. In this exclusive one-off evening, Alanna’s Esmay will share Bar Liberty’s kitchen in celebration of liberty, quality, fraternity – and deliver you multiple courses of delicious cuisine, served with matched beverages curated by the award-winning drink mavericks of Bar Liberty.

Esmay has been touring the country with Good Food Month and has sold out every single event. This will be her fourth pop-up, and Alanna can’t wait to see what local produce is exciting Melbourne and the crew at Bar Liberty right now. Alanna originally trained at Noosa’s celebrated The River House, then worked in the kitchens of Italy and Japan. She then went to Sydney where she became Head Chef of hatted restaurant, Saint Peter (winner of The Good Food Guide’s New Restaurant of the Year, 2018). She broke Sydney’s heart by returning to Brisbane, where she opened ARC Dining – scooping up a chef’s hat within her first year of trading. Her secret? Explore the territory of where she lands, unearth what’s local and showcase seasonal treasures from nearby farms and waters.

Over at Bar Liberty, the stellar team makes excellence seem a little bit too easy. The ethos behind their hatted wine bar was to create a space with a relaxed atmosphere, a seasonal menu, and an intriguing drinks list. But that’s just them being humble; there’s a colossal amount of talent packed into Bar Liberty. On the wines is Restaurant Manager Josh Begbie, multi award-winning Nick Tesar is in charge of all things cocktails, and Head Chef Zackary Furst is a long time friend of Sapwell’s, making this the ultimate dream team. This group of hospitality royalty are at the absolute pinnacle of their game – and you can taste this in every mouthful and sip of Bar Liberty’s goods.

Every Good Food Month event gets food-lovers excited, but this event is also for the die-hard wine-quaffers out there. Join Alanna, her team at Esmay, and the A-team of Bar Liberty for a one-off evening of multiple courses and incredible wines this Good Food Month.
