MasterChef inspires devine degustation at Peppers

Peppers Ruffles Lodge & Spa in the magnificent Gold Coast hinterland is taking Sunday lunch to a whole new level with two MasterChef inspired degustation events on August 7 and October 9.

Both events will be held at the retreat's Ruffles Restaurant where internationally renowned Head Chef Steve Houghton will serve an outstanding degustation menu, featuring seasonal local produce from the hinterland.

On arrival, guests will be greeted with French champagne and canapés in the poolside gazebo... then it's into the luxurious Ruffles Restaurant for an exquisite degustation lunch, MasterChef style.

At the end of the meal, Chef Houghton will personally meet with each guest, discuss each course and conduct a MasterChef inspired 'Ingredients Test' to determine who has the best nose for ingredients. There's even a prized gift voucher to the indulgent Ruffles Day Spa for the high scorers.

Priced at $100 per person, this memorable MasterChef event is one not to be missed. To secure a place call 07 5546 7411 or email ruffleslodge@peppers.com.au. Bookings are essential as places are limited.

Guests can also make a weekend of it with Peppers Ruffles Lodge & Spa's MasterChef Package from $588* per room per night. Includes accommodation in a Garden Villa or Chums Spa Villa, a three-course dinner for two from a special a la carte menu inspired by recipes from the MasterChef Series 2 cookbook, full breakfast for two each morning, a lavish Hop On Hop Off Tamborine day tour of five wineries, a cheese factory, distillery, brewery and Sky Walk plus a MasterChef Hamper, MasterChef Series 2 cookbook, MasterChef apron and a bottle of Ruffles' very special Shiraz to take home.
