The event was a triumph kicking off with a magnificent Maidenii Roselle and sweet vermouth “Americano” in the gardens, followed by a stellar long table lunch with a string of hit dishes and wines beginning with delicious Cretan honey and cheese skillet pies, majoram, orange paired with sensational crisp 2022 Latte Moonambel Quartz Bianco Sauvignon Blanc.

All dishes impressed for this epic long lunch in spectacular surrounds. A highlight was the succulent Brined and roasted chicken, tarragon, basil. Fabulous dining with Heirloom Tomato Salad and Charred Eggplant with bazha. Perfectly paired with 2022 Eastern Peake Western Victorian Chardonnay and 2022 Eastern Peake Intrinsic Pinot Noir.

Such an attractive space and breathtaking surrounds with food, beverages and conviviality off the charts. Ella Mittas is a star and her dishes were an absolute triumph. She signed copies of her book to the delight of foodies.
