Executive Chef Tony Panetta Shares ICC Sydney’s Seasonal Ingredient of the Month
Eating with the seasons is not just a trend, but something that research has shown can benefit health as well. ICC Sydney’s culinary team is passionate about sourcing seasonal produce and the freshest ingredients, helping to build a sustainable local food industry. This month’s star ingredient is the globe artichoke, sourced from Freemans Reach, a picturesque farming town known for its high-quality produce in the Hawkesbury River region, less than two hours outside of Sydney. Executive Chef Tony Panetta has found a wealth of ways to use the versatile vegetable, both fresh and preserved. The globe artichokes are sourced through a local farmer co-op, Cooks Co-op, which supports local suppliers by connecting them with fine dining venues and assisting them in getting their fresh produce onto plates across the city.
