Alla Wolf-Tasker

Lake House - Victoria, Australia

Presented by Tourism Australia

Join us for the first event in our exciting international dining series brought to us by AFAR Media. Chef Alla Wolf-Tasker will be serving a menu representative of the dishes that you would find at her Lake House restaurant in Victoria, Australia, in late autumn, when many of her favorite ingredients—like chestnuts, pheasant, and truffles—are at their peak.
