Down Warragul Way – And just a final mention to a regional gem. Scorchy and I made our way up to Hogget Kitchen last week. It’s been open for a while now, but chef Trevor Perkins (born and bred in Gippsland) has really hit his strides. Trevor embraces a nose-to-tail attitude, and everything’s done in house – from pickling and bottling to butchery, charcuterie, smoking and brining. Renowned Victorian winemakers Patrick Sullivan and William Downie lease the surrounding vineyard, so the wine list is a cracker. It really was stunning, simple, but flavoursome food that perfectly demonstrated the stupendous food bowl that is surrounding Gippsland. https://www.hogget.com.au
