Tasting the ‘Trust the Chef’ four-course menu with matching wines
What we enjoyed: ‘Trust the Chef’ at $68pp for four courses to share and matching wines
Highlights: the wine pairings by David Murphy and hay valley lamb shoulder
These massive prawns have been roasted and doused in butter – they’re easily peeled apart and scraped clean tasting sweet and with a firm bite.
Filleted sardines layered with some fresh vegetables, the warmed oily fish is cut through by a light vinaigrette. Thank you for making such a tasty little morsel of food to start.
delicate cubes of rare beef dressed simply in oil, speckled throughout with the light sourness of finger lime, topped with crunchy artichoke leaves – this is a great example of how you only have to use a few key ingredients to create a refined, clean dish
The meat dishes we sampled: wood-roasted chicken and Mediterranean braised lamb, were soft enough to pull apart with a fork alone. Chef RJ uses smart flavours that are guaranteed to work together well, resulting in rich, comforting and generous mouthfuls.
For dessert, we could not go past a crispy cannoli shell piped with luscious, creamy ricotta nor the hot fluffy doughnuts and chocolate sauce. We became buzzed from all the spot-on wine pairings and had a terrific feed in those four courses. Do go.
