Jock Zonfrillo and the Lavazza Training Centre present

In the amazing setting of the Australian Open, tennis has the flavour of Lavazza coffee. One of the unmissable events is the Coffee Pairing Day, on January 16th — for the occasion, coffee is transformed, reinterpreted and combined with the most original ingredients.
This year’s exclusive menu was created by renowned chef Jock Zonfrillo, in collaboration with the Lavazza Training Centre. The wide range of recipes celebrates traditional and modern elements of Australian culture, blending them together in a new style.

Each dish is inspired by the Kafa blend, with its aromatic notes of cherry, dates, honey and jasmine. Each creation is paired with a special coffee-based drink, to enrich the experience in true Lavazza style.

For breakfast, the classic bacon & egg roll is translated into Italian, with crunchy pancetta and tigelle instead of bread.
The dish is served with a rich Bloody Coffee Mary, prepared with tomato, red Vermouth and Kafa espresso. 

Pancetta and avocado relish tigelle - Bloody Coffee Mary

For breakfast, the classic bacon and egg roll is translated in Italian, with crispy pancetta and tigelle in place of bread.
The dish comes with the vivid Bloody Coffee Mary, made with tomato, red Vermut and the Kafa espresso, served in a small tumbler.

Scarlet prawn cocktail - Kafa Sangria Way

Giant prawns are the starting point for a light aperitif, served with a delicate prawn mayonnaise and cos lettuce.
The aperitif is completed by the Kafa Sangria Way, a champagne flute filled with Ginger Ale, White Vermouth and strawberries. 

Damper and mud crab  — Lavazza Espresso Martini

The damper and mud-crab dish captures Australian vibes with a twist, bringing into play burrata cheese and a miso dip. The perfect appetizer is served with the Lavazza Espresso Martini: Kafa espresso, Calua and a fragant crust with sugar and coffe powder, a pleasure for the palate.

Surf ‘n’ Turf  — Kafa Hot-Cold

Surf n' turf is a plate where the land meets the sea. Jock Zonfrillo pairs it with marron, geraldton wax and green ants.
Lavazza's chemex-prepared drink is a great match, thanks to its complex temperature and the sweetness of a rosemary and honey infusion.

Strawberries and cream — White Rose

As a dessert, the menu refines an easy choice, preparing strawberries and cream with set buffalo milk and eucalyptus.
The meal ends on a romantic note, thanks to the White Rose cocktail made with Kafa cold brew, liquid cream, honey and rose water.

Jock’s menu pays homage to the colourful food history of Australia: as well as celebrating local ingredients, it respects the relationship between producers and their land, with the aim of defining the nation’s current gastronomic identity.
