National Association of Women in Construction Awards, The Star

I recently attended the National Association of Women in Construction Awards which was held at the event room at the Star. These awards recognise and celebrate achievement in the construction industry.  The Construction Industry is a challenging environment and NAWIC NSW does a lot of great work in advancing women in this industry.

It was a great night hosted by Deborah Hutton. Check out their facebook for more information.

The night started with a butternut pumpkin and ricotta agnelotti with asapragus, sage butter and toasted pumpkin seeds. The pasta was perfectly cooked I loved biting into those pillows of pumpkin.

This was then followed by a slowly roasted corn fed chicken breast, truffled cauliflower puree, silver beet, baby cherry tomato, crispy pancetta and tarragon jus.  I couldn't really taste the truffle in the cauliflower but the chicken was perfectly cooked. The sides had a lot of different textures including silver beet, cauliflower and tomato were perfect with the chicken.

For dessert, there was a selection of dessert canapes of new york cheese cake, passion fruit curd with caramelised pineapple, dark chocolate with salted caramel tart with raspberry marshmellow.  I had the pleasure of tasting the cheesecake and the passion fruit curd.  Very tasty.

I enjoyed this meal with a glass of the Bossa Barossa Shiraz which was from the Barossa Valley SA.

A great night for women in construction! Congratulations to all those that were nominated and the winners who have had great accomplishments within the industry.

The guys at the Star were great.
