The bumper November issue of Gourmet Traveller launched last night with a fittingly huge party. The magazine took over Rockpool Bar & Grill in Sydney for an epic 50th birthday black-tie bash in collaboration with Patrón tequila.

Off the back of the exclusive media lunch on Tuesday, 300 party guests, included chefs, restaurateurs and a handful of lucky subscribers, experienced the spectacle of Rockpool Bar & Grill becoming Cantina Rockpool for one night only.

This included its wood-fired grill sizzling with Mexican spice, its army of staff pouring Margaritas, and the sounds of mariachi musicians and DJs, and celebrity DJ Alex Dimitriades.

“It was a pretty amazing party,” said Perry.

To prep for the once-in-a-lifetime event, Rockpool chef Neil Perry hopped a ride on the Patrón jet into the Mexican state of Jalisco, the home of tequila, to do hands-on research, tasting his way through the street foods of Guadalajara, meeting with agave farmers in the highlands, and blending a bespoke barrel for the event with distillers at the Hacienda Patrón.

The 50th-anniversary Gourmet Traveller,  hits newsstands on Monday 24 October.
