SASSI Seafood Circle of Chefs at Harbour House

Take a remarkable turnout of top chefs from around the country, a good turnout of restaurateurs, wine people and media and an evening of absolutely appalling wet and unseasonally cold weather at Harbour House in the Waterfront and what do you have?  A hugely successful evening despite non-stop rain and wind. Luckily there was plenty of shelter on the terrace while scrolls were awarded to chefs who are making great choices using sustainable fish from the WWF-SASSI Green list. We drank good wines and Harbour House produced some great dishes and sushi using the same sustainable fish.
