But if you can’t wait til then, you can get an early taste of what’s to come at Graze + Grains, a collaboration between Farmer’s Daughters and Starward Whisky.
The three-session event will feature farm-to-table cooking inspired by the flavours of East Gippsland. Menu items will be cooked campfire-style over hot coals and include dishes such as Starward Whisky-cured pastrami made from O’Connor’s beef, and Lakes Entrance school whiting served with a winter herb salad.
The drinks list also relies on regional suppliers and ingredients. There's Tambo honey in the hot buttered whisky, a Starward take on hot buttered rum. Wines from Nicholson River Winery will be available in wine-infused cocktails as well as by the glass. And Sailor’s Grave Brewery will provide a small batch of Law of the Tongue Oyster Stout. It's aged in a Starward Whisky barrel and has been made exclusively for the event.
Graze + Grains will be held on July 27, August 24 and September 21. Entry is free but dishes and drinks will need to be bought on the day. RSVPs are recommended.
From 12pm to 6pm.
