Unlocking the Mysteries of Gin

Coined by E.B. White as the elixir of quietude, a quality martini is hard to pass up. Yet, when trying to reinvent a classic gin martini at home, this elixir can sometimes end up dirtier than dishwater.

To shake or to stir?  What garnish goes best?  How does one treat gin with respect?

Hospitality training organisation, Steps Australia will answer these questions tomorrow along with West Winds Gin owner, Jeremy Spencer at Hobba in Prahran. They’ll host a hands-on gin class where notepads and car keys are best left at home.

Learn about botanicals, why West Winds uses wattle seed and bush tomato, how to balance flavours, when to serve with capsicum instead of lime, and other fundamentals of the mysterious spirit.

The event is one of many now being offered by Steps Australia in their new one-night courses brought together by Katrina Higham (Windsor Deli, Joe’s Bar & Dining Hall).

The program’s aim is to create a fun, approachable and inexpensive way to connect with local chefs and producers and walk away with something tangible.
