PROFILED BY DE GROOTS MEDIA
The job requirements of executive chefs have changed over the past few years. No longer forced to stay hidden behind kitchen doors and stovetops, they grace our screens regularly and sometimes even venture out into the restaurant. Chef Mark Bemer of the Marriott Hotel’s Icon Brasserie however, is not a new face to the restaurant floor, and has always maintained a loved presence both back and front of house. He mingles between tables chatting to curious diners about the techniques behind his creations before returning to the kitchen to take fresh inspiration to the pan. Seeing the final stage of his creations – the enjoyment of diners – has always been important and must be why his dishes remain so fresh and friendly to such a broad range of palates. He has a strong grasp of international tastes, a lively personality and a contagious energy that shines through the food.

The seafood buffet holds the day’s freshest catches. Lobsters lounge on shaved ice, Sydney rock oysters clutter in large porcelain bowls, blue swimmer crabs are arranged on platters, while mountains of plump tiger prawns and clusters of Balmain bugs complete the ocean feast. A subtle, salty scent lifts from the seafood bar as diners uptake the tongs in anticipation. The buffet also serves dishes of international influence. The Asian fish fillets emit aromas of coconut while fresh basil and olives mix between the penne pasta. Beef striploin sits in a plate of mushroom jus, carved and arranged delicately to reveal the light-pink inner texture.

Foreign accents are scattered throughout the restaurant while a multiplicity of Sydney’s social groups are here to enjoy the afternoon. Corporate lunches carry the conversation from business to leisure, as oyster shells pile up on their plates. Ladies who lunch sit with delicate dessert creations of panna cotta and tiny cups of crème brûlée on their plates, the collection appearing like a post-modern artwork. A chocolate biscuit shell encases the panama slice of chocolate and berry flavours. In spoonfuls of the slice, tiny seeds of sweetness from the raspberry compote burst through the chocolate mousse and finish with nutty nuggets of gold-dusted almond. If only you could make the flavours last longer than their sweet mouthfuls. These desserts create yet another reason to return and experience the culinary expertise of Icons Brasserie.
