With the Melbourne Cup Carnival getting underway is just under two days, it’s time to take a sneak peek inside this year’s stunning Myer Marquee. Welcome to Super Botanica.
The talented team at Gloss Creative have once again created a luxurious marquee bursting with botanical sets of wonder, super scaled specimens of flower, fruit and vines. Luxe tan leather benches are set with powder pink tables topped with fresh foliage, while cork-top stools and soft grey armchairs provide a comfortable place for guests to relax.
Our friends at The Big Group have designed a delectable menu inspired by ‘Super Botanica’, which features only the freshest seasonal produce in its most pure, simple and delicious form. Spring fruit tartlets, smashed avocado on sourdough and a selection of cold pressed juices will greet guests on their arrival. Fresh tuna sashimi and perfect prawn sandwiches follow to freshen the palette before the delicious and healthy flavours of kale salad with chilli salt and cured salmon.
A 7 metre-long copper table known as ‘The Botanist’s Table’ will allow guests to take their place and enjoy a freshly shucked oyster and glass of G.H Mumm French Champagne at the ultimate Oyster Bar, while luxury dessert boutique Bibelot will be treating guests to hand selected chocolates and mouth-watering artisan gelato in flavours of strawberry-lemon myrtle sorbet, mandarin-yuzu sorbet and pistachio gelato.
