On Valentine’s Day, the chefs at South Melbourne’s Half Acre will be showing some love to the farmers and suppliers in the state’s bushfire-affected areas.
They’ve created a four-course menu specifically for the event, which is built around produce from Gippsland and its surrounding areas. At each two-hour sitting there’ll be a number of appetisers and a dessert plate, with your choice of entree and main.
Highlights include Lakes Entrance John Dory with aniseed myrtle consommé, green peas and shoots; Macedon duck breast with wattleseed (from East Gippsland's Reedy Creek), candied orange crust, crisp legs, baby carrots and burnt citrus; and porterhouse from Gippsland's Corinella area with horseradish, chimichurri, jus, black garlic and lemon myrtle.
As part of the dessert plate: chocolate pudding with strawberries from Berry Sensation in West Gippsland's Shady Creek, Davidson's plum and sour-cherry-whipped crème fraiche (also from Gippsland).
