Steph joined the Canterbury team in 2015 and since then has been a driving creative force for the Club’s Dining Precinct including Bakehouse Café, Lavico and the soon to-be opened, The Bistro.
We spend five minutes with her to find out her source of menu inspiration for The Bistro.
What is the inspiration for The Bistro’s menu?
We wanted to create a place where people can enjoy great food in a pleasant environment that is comfortable, family-friendly and relaxed.
How many dishes will be available on the menu?
We will have a great selection of classic favourites like chicken schnitzel and house battered fish and chips. There will also be a new burger range, hearty main meals and a handful of shared meals for those that enjoy a family feed.
How do you and the chef team feel about potentially cooking for 700 people when the restaurant is at full capacity?
It is not often as a chef that you are faced with an opportunity to be a part of something like The Bistro; the opportunity to cook for such a large capacity restaurant is an exciting prospect for our team and we look forward to the challenge of doing so.
What will be The Bistro’s signature dish?
We will have lots of exciting new dishes for our customers to enjoy, so we’ll let them decide what becomes our ‘signature’ dish.
How does The Bistro sit within the other restaurant offerings that Canterbury provides currently, a part of the Canterbury Dining Precinct?
The Bistro sits comfortably within the Canterbury restaurant portfolio as the casual ‘please all’ restaurant that can be enjoyed by everyone every day. With everything from healthy options to big hearty meals and the latest on trend meals from around the globe, The Bistro is the perfect place to bring the entire family safe in the knowledge that everyone will find something to suit their taste.
