With a change of season comes our new Winter menu. Rest assured the favourites remain on the menu, many that first appeared when we started 15 years ago, we’ve simply added some delicious winter warmers.
I love experimenting with new recipes or tweaking old favourites. But they all must meet our selection criteria of being easy to eat (we don’t want any spills on pretty dresses), foolproof for our chefs to serve & delicious – of course!
One of our new items is a Lamb Shank Empanada. Filled with slow cooked Lamb Shank spiced with Harissa & wrapped in a light, flaky pastry. It’s 2 -3 mouthfuls, lovely & filling & perfect for serving up a bit later in the night as the party kicks on. We’ll be serving these with a Chimichurri sauce, an Argentinian native, fresh & a little bit fiery. It’s a delicious combination of chilli, garlic, coriander, flat leaf parsley & oregano.
I first came across empanadas when travelling in South America many years ago. I instantly fell in love with these snacks. Crumbly pastry, spicy meat, & a surprise olive or two. It was the perfect backpacker food, filling & affordable! I’m instantly transported back to the streets of Chile whenever I eat an empanada. During that 9 month adventure around the world, trying new delicacies constantly, I had the crazy dream of taking the best foods from each of the countries visited & serving them in my own restaurant. What a mish mash of tastes that would have been!!! Not one of my finer marketing ideas.
Back to Sydney & the winter menu… We also have a beautiful spiced Moroccan Pumpkin Soup that we serve in shot glasses with Parmesan crisps; cute as anything Mini Beef Wellingtons & a few more surprises. You can download the winter menu here.
If you’re thinking of a party please don’t hesitate to let us know the date as we can get booked up & I don’t want you to miss out 🙂
Feel free to call me anytime. I’d be more than happy to chat with you & advise you on all things entertaining.
