Rogue Homme: 5 Questions with Francesco Mannelli
January 4, 2018 ModeFS

We sat down with Chef Francesco to chat about the Restaurant, what inspires him and how he came to work for the Hotel.

How would you describe Mode Kitchen & Bar? 

Meaning ‘of the moment’, Mode Kitchen & Bar is a modern Australian restaurant with a Mediterranean influence that strikes a balance between fine dining and bistro. We offer uncomplicated and unfussy food using the best produce of the season. The venue is luxurious but also welcoming, with friendly service that makes for a memorable dining experience

What’s your inspiration behind the menu? 

I draw inspiration from the ingredients, and then I create the dish. Due to my Italian background, I like to celebrate fresh and seasonal produce, without using too many elements on the plate. In addition to the Mediterranean influences, I’m also inspired by my sous, junior sous and pastry chefs and the cuisines of where they’re from – French, Chinese and Korean to name a few. Every touch makes a different flavour.
