Several of us from Apromo Trading attended the launch of the Gault&Millau Australia 2018 Restaurant Guide. This was a fun evening held at The Cannery Rosebery on Monday 13th November 2017.

The Gault&Millau yellow guide is an annual reference of the Australian fine dining scene, benchmarking restaurants based upon anonymous dining by qualified reviewers.

There were some colourful characters in flamboyant frocks sharing their ebullient spirit and fostering a party atmosphere through the crowd. It could be said they were somewhat loud.

Camp dancing. Camp dancing.

We enjoyed the many gourmet foods and drinks offered to impress us, and so we were.

As a sponsor of the book, awards and event we contributed to the food temptations with:
Milk chocolate truffles made with Belcolade Venezuela 43%
Dark chocolate truffles made with Belcolade Perus 64%
White chocolate truffles made with Belcolade Domicican Republic 29% enrobed in Croc’In nougatine.
The truffles were made for us by Belle Fleur
