lunch @ the Cable Station in Stanley

I have literally just rolled in the door from the Cable Station in Stanley where the amazing and gorgeous Charlotte Brown puts on a seasonal producer’s lunch. It was a complete honour to be a guest at the Autumn event and partake of “a six course long and lazy lunch to celebrate the changing of seasons, featuring local seasonal produce, an opportunity to meet and chat with the producer’s and learn about the processes involved in arriving from the paddock to the plate”

Now I don’t want to make you too jealous but this is what we ate:

slow roasted capsicum with ricotta cheese and vine ripened tomatoes

spicy sassafras parsnip soup

2009 Native Point Sauvignon Blanc

mutton bird and duck terrine with a pepperberry and tomato marmalade

2008 Native Point Pinot Noir

house made free range egg fettucine al funghi

2009 Native Point Pinot Gris

twice cooked crispy skinned Wessex Saddleback pork belly on parmesan risotto with chilli jam

2005 Native Point Pinot Noir

mile high apple pie with Meander Valley double cream

Featured producers: Guy Robertson & Eliza Wood from Mount Gnomon Farm in Penguin, Warren & Colleen Squib from RW Squibb & Sons in Spreyton, Rob & Ann Henderson Capsicum Farm in Kindred, Fiona and Phillip Medwin’s free range eggs from Forest, Jeremy Rockliffe’s Sassafras Farms in Sassafras and Tim & Sheena High from Native Point Wines in the Tamar Valley.

I have come away with a full belly, an afternoon of exceptional company (thanks to Eliza & Guy from Mt Gnomon Farm and Lisa from Bruce’s), a box of produce to drop into the Salvos tomorrow and a contact for expanding Produce to the People to Smithton!  What a great Sunday!!
