A Moveable Feast: This week in food – October 14
THIS WEEK IN FOOD
There’s nothing like a slow Sunday feed, so imagine grazing on top nosh with a stunning view. It’s possible with the new Sunday Graze launching last week at Transit Rooftop at Federation Square. With dishes straight out of the renowned Taxi Kitchen, you can enjoy a la carte dining with an unforgettable vista. Available from 11am, but it’s not your typical brunch – Lamb and Hoisin Steamed buns, son-in-law quail eggs, and Szechuan Duck – there’s not a smashed avocado in sight!
BUKU, WON’T YOU?
On my healthy eating kick this week, I was ready to dish out a delivery of guilt-inducing looking cakes that arrived at work, until I realised that Buku Cakery is all about clean eating. The Beetroot Brownie was out of this world, their offerings are largely gluten and refined sugar-free, vegan and vegetarian. All that aside, they were seriously tasty!
It may not look like it, but Buku Cakery is all about clean eating.
WINES AND WAVES
If you’re not getting all horsey for Cup weekend, then head down to Geelong and get involved in the Toast to the Coast. With more than 25 wineries involved, the highlights include a prosecco and oyster bar & Korean BBQ at Austins & Co; ‘Froses’ at Leura Park Estate (frozen Moscato, Mojito or Cosmopolitans); and classic jazz tunes in the Barrel Hall at Scotchmans Hill.
THE MARQUEE WITH THE MOSTEST
If you ARE getting all horsey in November, then you may be interesting in what those VIPs in the Birdcage are getting up to. Of course THE place to be is the Emirates Marquee, and there’s always a bit of excitement around the announcement of their theme each year. This year? Why, it’s good ole Australia! Celebrating 20 years in Oz, it’ll be all eucalyptus, kangaroo paw and cockatoos. Guests will dine on rare WA pearl meat, finger lime pearls, Victorian lamb and Balmain Bug. Lucky them!
OPEN HOUSE, OPEN KITCHEN
Keen to get out of town? The Eurambeen Historic Homestead is hosting an Open Garden on the 19th and 20th November with a decidedly gourmet feel. You’ll be able to buy morsels and liquid refershments from Mt Langi Ghiran wines, Red Duck Brewery and Tastee Treats, as well as explore the three acre Edna Walling-designed gardens.
