It’s time to whip out your crustacean bibs because the Crab Carnival is officially returning to The Morrison 19th March – 15th April 2018 with an appealing new menu set to surprise and delight Sydney-siders.
The Crab Carnival, now in its fifth consecutive year, celebrates the art of creating, cooking and – of course – chowing down on delicious crab dishes, featuring a speciality menu curated by The Morrison’s Culinary Director, Chef Sean Connolly. 2018’s menu is inspired by Sean’s personal passion for Italian cooking, with dish standouts including the exquisite Crab Ravioli and indulgent Crab Risotto.
“Most people make the mistake of thinking that crabs are only a summer delicacy,” Sean Connolly says. “I want to inspire people to incorporate crab into heartier, comfort foods, especially as we enter into the colder months. Fusing crab with Italian cuisine highlights the versatility of this humble crustacean.”
In addition to creating innovative crab dishes, Crab Carnival is committed to delivering a menu that is as sustainable as it is delicious. Chef Connolly has worked closely with suppliers to ensure the produce provided promotes sustainability, inspired by the paddock to plate ethos.
If this isn’t your first Crab Carnival rodeo, then you’ll be pleased to know Sean’s signature Chilli Mud Crab and Mac & Cheese will also be making a return for 2018. Complementing the menu will be a selection of beverages, including a refreshing gin inspired lemon myrtle flavoured cocktail, a sweet rosé sangria, and a raft of nautical-inspired craft beers.
And as if that weren’t enough, throughout Crab Carnival there will be a number of sumptuous specials on offer.
Please see them below:
- Monday & Thursday – Steam Pot Nights (only available on these nights)
- Tuesday – Cheap Chilli Muddies
- Wednesday – The infamous $1 Oyster Hour
- Friday – $12 cocktail and beer specials
