Have ventured to Stirling, which is probably at the outer limit of my feeding radius. “Locavore” only serves local produce, from within 100 miles of the restaurant, for environmental/social reasons.
I’m more interested in tasting the local produce from a culinary point of view, than feeling good about some greenie bullshit. :)
No Diet Coke, but local “Bickford’s Kola” is acceptable.
I hope there’s something worth eating within 100 miles. :)
With roasted root vegetables, wilted spinach & jus.
This is basically a casserole. Big chunks of cooked beetroot, and capsicum are nice, but I don’t really detect any other flavour or seasoning beyond the visible components. I’m not a huge fan of slow cooking, but the lamb here is reasonable. I add some of the River Murray salt to the meat, and it’s bit bad. The wilted spinach us indistinguishable from raw spinach.
With Tweedvale double cream & candied orange.
This is the thickest cream I’ve ever seen. I thought it had to be ice cream, so I tried to eat it. The cream and slightly citrusy tart wouldn’t be too bad together, but when combined with the zingy straws of candied orange, they create a tangy and tasty result.
