Export Fresh joined the two hatted head chef Karl Firla at Oscillate Wildly for the June Petite Bouche Chef of the month. His food is a magnitude of passion, simplicity, technique and a fusion of European, Asian and Australian cuisine using only the best local produce.
Situated on the quirky Australia Street in Newtown. Karl and his team have to lead the way for serving exquisite food with the likes of Black Star Pastry, Continental Deli Bar Bistro and Barmuda Cafe popping up after Oscillates Wildly's beginnings back in 2008.
Using the finest ingredients from Export Fresh Karl makes a degustation of three dishes in his video using Japanese Blush Turnips, Woodland Sorrel, Pineapple Sage, Baby Cos, Lemon Balm and Amaranth.
