INTERVIEW WITH WARREN TURNBULL

BURGER LOVE IT WASN’T LONG BEFORE CHUR BURGER WAS DISCOVERED BY SYDNEY’S FOODIES, FOOD CRITICS AND BLOGGERS. IN FACT, JUST 6 WEEKS AFTER OPENING THEIR DOORS IN SURRY HILLS, THE BURGER JOINT WAS NAMED THE BEST BURGER IN THE GOOD FOOD SECTION OF THE SYDNEY MORNING HERALD. A newfound love, Chur Burger is the brainchild of award-winning chef Warren Turnbull, who has been successfully operating eight venues bringing his delicious gourmet burgers to Brisbane, Sydney and Melbourne since 2010. In 2017, the mouthwatering menu of good oldfashioned burgers and tasty milkshakes found its home in the hottest new food and drink destination to hit Western Sydney, West HQ. The cult-favourite joint is known for offering a casual, relaxed dining area to enjoy great burgers at amazing prices.

We had to ask… Street art and laid-back vibes give Chur Burger its friendly, comfortable and award-winning reputation, but with its prominent edge of maintaining just the right level of ‘trendy’, has foodies wrapped up in burger love. Diners can be spoilt for choice. From the OG Beef and the notorious P.I.G, Chur’s Mac Daddy to the signature Chur Beast loaded with double grilled beef, double bacon, double cheese, tomato jam, BBQ sauce and Mustard Majo, there is something for every palette. And if that is not enough there is a great selection of sides including sweet potato fries, potato gems or the spicy and smoky mac & cheese or choose a fresh coleslaw kiwi style or crispy iceberg salad with buttermilk dressing. West HQ has the perfect spot for all ages to find burger love. It is no secret. Chur burger was born from a simple vision… Warren’s love for burgers.

WHAT MAKES A GOOD BURGER IN YOUR OPINION?

The perfect burger in my opinion starts with using the best produce and ingredients. Using the best you can find makes it all that bit easier. If you have the best pattie and perfect bun you are 90% there. The rest is just the customer’s personal preference. I am also a massive fan of using a chargrill to cook our beef, lamb and chicken burgers. WHY ARE YOU SO PASSIONATE ABOUT CHUR BURGER?

I have always loved what we offer in the way of really top quality food in a relaxed friendly environment. Six years on I still feel we are doing this well and our food has actually gotten even better. We are always looking at ways to improve what we do, which I think is really important. I think the day you become complacent it is time to stop. WHAT WILL THE MENU AT CHUR BURGER WEST HQ BE LIKE?

Our menu is very similar to our flagship store in Surry Hills with special additions of some crazy delicious options created by the chefs at West HQ.

MOMENTS OF INDULGENCE AT CORNER CAFÉ EVERYONE’S IDEA OF WHAT MAKES THE PERFECT TREAT IS DIFFERENT. For some, it’s a perfectly crispy ricotta cannoli, dusted with icing sugar and crushed pistachios. For others it’s a classic baguette, filled with smoked leg ham, French brie cheese, and Dijon mustard. Others still just like to be surprised. Whatever your taste, you’ll find it at Corner Café – Western Sydney’s newest French-style patisserie at West HQ. Its delightful little menu is infused with all the best of traditional European cooking, poised to flex and make the best of time-worn favourites. Its sweet selection is dotted with classic Italian favourites, as well as its very own homemade zuccherati; Italian-style filled donuts; something you won’t have tried before but may well blow your mind. Then there’s the Belgian

waffles, enveloped in chocolate layers of smooth indulgence, and a range of perfectly baked, amber-glossed Danish pastries, buttery-crisp on the outside and warm and doughy on the inside. If it’s something savoury you crave, you haven’t lived until you’ve tried a hot bacon and brie croissant. There’s even something for the wellnessminded among us, with a range of salad bowls inspired by the world’s freshest, most luscious, and healthful ingredients. Your next surprise awaits you, and it’s right around the corner.

AUSTRALIA’S FAVOURITE GELATO WHAT IF THERE WAS A HEALTHIER, MORE DELICIOUS ALTERNATIVE TO ICE CREAM? One taste of Gelatissimo’s artisan-created gelato at West HQ, and you won’t even remember what “ice cream” means.

36

Gelato is often described as Italian ice cream, but it’s actually nothing like it: unlike ice cream, which uses cream, gelato is crafted with whole milk. That means it contains a whole lot less fat, yet it tastes a whole lot creamier; and the gelato at Gelatissimo is the best and creamiest of them all. The delicious, authentic gelato is churned out fresh in-store every day, using only the finest ingredients on offer, and containing absolutely zero artificial flavours or colours. What’s not to love? Gelatissimo has options for everyone including vegan-friendly, gluten and nondairy friendly and an extensive range of delicious flavours on offer to suit every taste and satisfy every craving. Flavour-wise, you can do so much more with gelato than you could ever hope to achieve with ice cream. Sure, there are always the classics – rich Italian Chocolate, smooth Vanilla, or traditional Italian Hazelnut, Cookies and Cream – made unforgettably better in true Gelatissimo style. Or you could try the award-winning Mango or the Salted Macadamia and Dulce Del Leche flavour and the super Deluxe range including Wicked Double Choc Brownie and Decadent Cookie Dough. There are low sugar options too!

If you’re ever planning a party, running late to a family dinner, or just feel like treating yourself to something special, the Gelatissimo flavours are awe-inspiring and will always leave you smiling.

“AT GELATISSIMO WE BELIEVE IN BRINGING PEOPLE TOGETHER TO SHARE MOMENTS OF HAPPINESS, ONE SCOOP AT A TIME. WEST HQ IS SUCH A BOLD REIMAGINING OF WHAT A VENUE CAN BRING TO THE REGION THAT WE ARE THRILLED TO BE A LAUNCH PARTNER. MADE FRESH INSTORE DAILY OUR GELATO COMPLIMENTS PERFECTLY WEST HQ’S MISSION TO BRING THE BEST OF THE BEST TO THE WEST.” – David James, General Manager, Gelatissimo Australia.

Choosing your flavour is only half the fun. Try it today and see for yourself how we’re living our lives so deliciously.

THE AROMATIC SCENTS AND RICH FLAVOURS OF FRESH STREET FOOD FROM THE MOMENT YOU STEP INTO THE BRIGHT AND VIBRANT DINING SPACE OF WEST HQ’S NEW TOWN THAI STREET FOOD, IT’S CLEAR THERE’S GOING TO BE A NEW FAVOURITE IN TOWN. THE MENU TURNS TRADITIONAL SOUTH-EAST ASIAN DISHES INTO DYNAMITE, DELIVERING ABSOLUTE KNOCKOUTS FROM YOUR FIRST BITE TO YOUR VERY LAST SPOONFUL OF DESSERT. Small, exotic bites like the roast duck spring rolls with black fungi, garlic, coriander and vermicelli with a plum sauce, and our signature Wow Wings – fried battered chicken wings and sweet chilli dipping sauce – lead into a rockstar arrangement of hot pot soups and exquisitely light bites, like battered soft shell crab seasoned with sea salt, pepper, fried garlic and green wakame seaweed. The Crying Tiger – grilled, marinated beef slices, served with sticky rice and Nam Jim dip – is anything but ordinary; and we haven’t even got to the mains yet. The classic Massaman beef curry, Pad Thai and Pad Se Ew noodles, and a range of Wok favourites are reinvigorated using the freshest, boldest ingredients, all of which are customisable to suit every taste via the Build Your Own options. Aromatic street food specials – like the whole steamed barramundi and the lemongrass lamb – designed with the Asian shared-food philosophy in mind, bring balance to the feast.

Begin with a tipple, or dip your toe into a sea of Thai-style drinks to brighten your palate; the aptly named Sunshine Juice, or Pink Dragon Iced Tea are sure to please, but we recommend the Panthai Thai Iced Tea – made with Panthai tea, palm sugar, and coconut milk – for a dose of authentic goodness. Take your pick from a treasure trove of Australian wines, and an international beer list; you’ll have no trouble finding the perfect accompaniment to your meal. With the aromatic scents and rich flavours of East-Asian street food on the steps of Western Sydney, New Town Thai Street Food is sure to impress for a long time yet.

WHAT STEFANO SAYS ABOUT HIS CRAFT CAN YOU TELL US WHAT ITALY MEANS TO YOU?

Italy is where I was born and remains a large part of my culture. Italy provides a contrast to my life in Australia. Though I spent my formative years in the western suburbs – my schooling at Blacktown Public and Blacktown Boy’s High – I’ve spent the last 40 years re-connecting with Italy through my restaurants, food, writing and books. WOULD YOU SAY PIZZA IS MORE THAN JUST A FLATBREAD WITH TOPPINGS?

BRINGING AUTHENTIC ITALIAN STREET FOOD TO WESTERN SYDNEY NESTLED IN SYDNEY’S NEWEST DINING AND ENTERTAINMENT QUARTER, WEST HQ, IS PIZZAPERTA MANFREDI, A PIZZERIA THAT WILL CHANGE EVERYTHING YOU THOUGHT YOU KNEW ABOUT PIZZA. Brought to you by the godfather of modern Italian cuisine in Australia, Stefano Manfredi, PizzAperta pizzas are crafted from the finest of artisan flours stoneground and imported direct from Italy. Using both traditional and modern techniques, PizzAperta Manfredi is bringing the best of classic Italian street food to the streets of Western Sydney.

Pizza may be seen as the humblest of Italian cuisine, but a true pizza is only achieved through the mastery of a multi-stage process rich in complexity and cultural heritage. As Manfredi himself says, behind the tradition is dedication, a ton of work, and a singlemindedness in striving for perfection. First, the dough is fermented using a biga, a pre-dough that is then left overnight before being carefully mixed with more flour and water to a final dough that is shaped into balls. These are left to ferment slowly at 4 degrees for 24 hours. The entire process takes a minimum of 36 hours. Then, into the state-of-the-art Marana oven it goes, fired with local ironbark wood from the Blue Mountains, topped with the highest quality, fresh seasonal ingredients. PizzAperta creates pizzas with deliberately simple flavours, designed to enhance and complement the fragrant, handcrafted base. But the flavours are strong, bold and innovative, keeping to the spirit of New Wave style. You will never look at pizza the same way again.

A lot of people regard pizza making as an art but I’m of the opinion that it is pure refinement and mastering of craft. To start, you have to ask yourself what sort of pizza you want to make. Then you have to study and master all its elements and techniques. It takes tenacity and dedication, rather than art. HOW WOULD YOU DESCRIBE THE PIZZA CULTURE IN AUSTRALIAN IN COMPARISON TO ITALY?

My view is that pizza culture in Australia is – for the most part – stuck in what I would call the “international Naples model”. Most pizzerie begin with dough made from highly refined “00” flour, a good dose of yeast and relatively short fermentation times. In Italy there has been a movement over the last 15 years to rediscover the idea of pizza, starting with stoneground and ancient grain flours, long and slow fermentation times, and the quality of the toppings. I would call this movement ‘New Wave’. YOUR MULTI-AWARD-WINNING RESTAURANTS HAVE HELPED SHAPE AND DEFINE ITALIAN DINING IN SYDNEY. WHAT WILL PIZZAPERTA MANFREDI BRING TO THE TABLE?

The first PizzAperta Manfredi to open in 2014 caught the attention of Italy’s Gambero Rosso and through their annual guide, Pizzerie d’Italia, awarded us their coveted 3 slices. We were among a small group of pizzerie outside Italy to be given this honour. We will continue to make our pizze with the best stoneground flours, slow fermentation and the best quality ingredients to bring to our guests’ tables fragrant, tasty, healthy slices.

A VIEW FROM THE MAN BEHIND THE GRILL – SEAN CONNOLLY WHAT IS YOUR FOOD PHILOSOPHY?

WHAT BROUGHT YOU TO WEST HQ?

My philosophy is to keep it simple and try not to over complicate things. I prefer to let the produce speak for itself and I focus on good technique rather than tricky overdressed food. I want my food to be accessible, food for everyone.

The opportunity to be a pioneer. I love a challenge and I find it hard to say no to any good opportunity.

HOW WOULD YOU SAY YOUR STYLE OF COOKING HAS EVOLVED OVER THE YEARS?

As a young boy cooking in Yorkshire, it was very much a roast beef and Yorkshire pudding culture. A very traditional classic British/French style of cooking very different from when I arrived in Australia. I was blown away with the cultural diversity of Sydney and fusion of cultures from Asia and the Indigenous outback. In the 80’s it was really an interesting time in Australia as it was the time when the Sydney food scene was developing its own identity. Experimenting with flavours helped me grow as a chef and helped me better understand where I felt most comfortable.

All through my career I’ve taken risks and will continue to do so. I strongly believe that without taking any risks there’s no success to be had. What also brought me to West HQ are the two Steves. Mr Manfredi from PizzAperta Manfredi and Mr Anastasiou from Chu Restaurant who also have their own unique dining spaces at West HQ. I’ve admired both them for many years. Stefano is an amazing chef and he has been part of the fabric of the Australian food scene. Steve Anastasiou on the other hand is an inspiring entrepreneur and restaurateur and above all a great friend. FOLLOWING THE SUCCESS OF YOUR PREVIOUS RESTAURANTS, DINERS ARE IN FOR A TREAT. WHAT SHOULD THEY EXPECT WHEN DINING AT STEAK & CO.?

These days I cook from the heart. Choosing tradition over trend. If I stumble across a modern fun dish I will serve it but I usually prefer cooking that comes from a place of heritage and authenticity.

I’m looking to showcase the best of Australian butchery and fishmongers’ produce.

YOU HAVE SIX AWARD-WINNING RESTAURANTS IN THREE CORNERS OF THE GLOBE. WHAT DRIVES YOU TO HAVE SUCH PRESENCE ACROSS SO MANY DIFFERENT FOOD CULTURES?

Somebody recently asked me what the ‘& Co’ in the name stood for. I said ‘c’ is for crustacean and ‘o’ is for oysters.

As a chef I believe there are simply no cultural boundaries around food. No matter in which country I’m invited to cook, the more and more I discover that quality food is recognised in every language, across any culture. The nod or the wink from a happy customer is all I need to know that what I’m doing is pleasing to people.

Serving great quality steak, oysters and crustaceans.

I’m so looking forward to my guests coming in and choosing a steak from the butchers window, sitting down to relax enjoying our crumbed oysters and prawn cocktails and drinking a carafe of wine whilst their steaks are cooking.

FINE CHINA: AN EXQUISITE DINING EXPERIENCE IN WESTERN SYDNEY Coming to the West HQ dining and entertainment precinct in September 2019 is Chu Restaurant. Brought to Western Sydney by restaurateur Steve Anastasiou, Chu is a sister restaurant to the celebrated, multi-award-winning institutions China Doll in Wolloomooloo and the CBD’s China Lane. Echoing the same refined palette of delicate pan-Asian flavours, the menu at Chu is designed so that everything is meant to be shared and enjoyed. Together with Head Chef Ben Haywood, Anastasiou is working closely with his team of talented epicures and connoisseurs at the newly created venue to bring the vision of contemporary Asian cuisine to life in West HQ. Accompanied by a painstakingly hand-selected wine list, the menu will feature a host of familiar favourites, including handmade dumplings crafted fresh daily, succulently roasted Chinese meats, locally sourced seafood, as well as a smattering of signature dishes from its heritage restaurants. Chu will also introduce a range of new and unique dishes, created especially for Western Sydney, made with the highest quality ingredients and the freshest local produce.

Chu’s menu exemplifies the same poignancy as Anastasiou’s more mature creations in its modern take on culinary traditions from China, Hong Kong, Japan, and South-East Asia. Designed by Bianca Foster of The Unlisted Collective, the 250-seat space at Chu will immerse diners in the glamour and theatre of 1940s Shanghai; a perfect complement to a night out at the soon-to-open Sydney Coliseum Theatre. Whether you are catching a world-class musical, live music, symphony, dance, comedy, or family entertainment event at the iconic 2,200-seat proscenium theatre, Chu is the ideal destination for your pre-theatre dinner or postshow nightcap. Chu is a celebration of the best of contemporary Asian cuisine, bearing all the hallmarks of an exquisite dining experience without the need to travel from Western Sydney.

INTERVIEW WITH STEVE ANASTASIOU WHAT SHOULD DINERS EXPECT TO EXPERIENCE IN YOUR NEW RESTAURANT?

We certainly aim to deliver a new level of dining experience to West HQ. We have been lucky enough to have secured a great space that is large enough to allow us to create multiple levels of dining and introduce a warm but lively ambience in the space. From family gatherings and celebrations to intimate dining, the venue will have the capabilities to provide separate areas and allow our guests choices, whether it be pre or post theatre at the new stateof-the-art entertainment centre, to celebratory dining for all occasions and even corporate events. In addition, we will create spaces for casual catch ups and a quick drink and snack. WHAT SETS CHU APART FROM THE REST OF THE AWARD-WINNING CHINA DOLL RESTAURANTS?

What sets Chu apart is its size and location that will allow us the capability to cater for a multitude of our guests. We can also deliver a larger and extensive food offering that our other venues restrict us from providing due to size constraints, and the main point being that we have award-

winning chefs collaborating on the menus which is a definite bonus for our guests at Chu. WHY DID YOU CHOOSE WEST HQ AS THE DESTINATION FOR YOUR NEW RESTAURANT? WHAT ATTRACTED YOU TO WESTERN SYDNEY?

West HQ has set a very high standard in its facilities and entertainment; it delivers on all levels from its food offering to indoor athletics stadium, and accommodation. I was extremely impressed by the operators that have been hand selected to provide the very best in dining experiences that Sydney has to offer. On another note, being born and raised in the west, it wasn’t a hard decision for me. To be involved in this exciting project created by some very talented people and their vision was an opportunity one can’t refuse. HOW WOULD YOU DESCRIBE TODAY’S FOOD CULTURE IN AUSTRALIA? HOW DOES THAT COMPARE TO THE PAST?

Food culture in Australia can simply be summarised in a few words. Given the diverse multicultural population and the abundance of the very best fresh food from vegetables to meat and seafood – in my opinion are the best in the world – makes us world leaders in the food trend ranks. Having the most talented team of chefs and front-ofhouse staff on ground is also a recipe which makes for a great offering to the general public.
