Christmas Tips & Recipes

Christmas-time is here and it's all about endless eating and drinking, in our professional opinion, and there’s no time for regret over tipsy karaoke when you have a Christmas Day meal to prepare. We've gathered together some ideas from some of the finest in their field here at Barangaroo House, to help you sort out what to eat and drink this (hot) Christmas season.

Smashable Reds

Smashable reds have arrived, and they’ve been given the tick of approval by some of our country’s most respected sommeliers and wine makers, including our very own Head Somm. Georgina Larsson. Georgina tells us that smashable reds are those that keep a core focus on quality, freshness and value.  Click below to read more on what to drink, of the red variety, this summer.

Bea was thrilled to host a very special breakfast on March 8th for International Women's Day - Sydney's inaugural One of One breakfast event, bringing together mentors, mentees and industry leaders in the music industry.


The incredible women of the Barangaroo House kitchen put together a bespoke menu for the event, while women gathered to listen to important key note speeches and special live performances from notable artists in the music industry. 

Bea X Bangara

In celebration of our friends at Bangara, our Head Chef recreated a dish  straight from a new Bangara work called Dark Emu; a typical Aboriginal Australian dish pre-European settlement with his own signature spin.


Bruce Pascoe’s landmark book illuminated the sophisticated food production and land management practices of pre-colonial Aboriginal Australians. Australian Gourmet Traveller spoke with Bruce Pascoe about our collaborative dish. 

Gordon Ramsay at Bea

We were thrilled to be host the Delicious Icon Series’ dinner with Matt Moran + Gordon Ramsay at Bea.  Bea opened its doors to 150 guests for dinner with old friends Matt and Gordon, to enjoy the specially curated menu by Head Chef, paired with wines from The Wine Society. 


The night celebrated Gordon’s latest cook book, Ultimate Fit Food and Matt’s new venture Barangaroo House. It was to an entertaining night with both Matt and Gordon hosting.
