Charles Heidsieck Champagne lunch Posted by Reef Magazine - 29 October 2013 The most sought after ticket of Audi Hamilton Island Race Week returned to an idyllic qualia for an afternoon of amazing cuisine and a fine selection of Charles Heidsieck Champagnes. The bubbles were enjoyed and expertly matched by a three-course menu by qualia’s Executive Chef Alastair Waddell. The canapes were divine, too, including treacle cured salmon with almond and lemon; bellota ham, apple and celeriac, miso and lime aioli and marron tail, baby gem lettuce, fennel preserve and tarragon - not to be skipped at any cost. The diners included Ronan Keating, who was staying on the island for Audi Hamilton Island Race Week with his family. He loved every course!
