    Welcome to Winter Fireside Dinner featuring local Truffles, Wines & Delights

    Welcome to Winter Fireside Dinner featuring local Truffles, Wines & Delights We love winter at Nest. With an open fire, lounges, windows to gaze out of, aromas of hearty stews, snow falling around the mountains and sugar coating our forests, well, how couldn't you?

    To celebrate the joys of the cosy season ahead on the 22nd June we are hosting a 'Welcome to Winter Fireside Dinner, featuring Dishes of Local Truffles, Wine and Delights'.

    You see Truffles are a very good reason to hurry on winter.  In Tumbarumba we are ever so fortunate to be amidst the elusive truffle growing community.  These curious little fungi are a true gourmet delight highly sought after all over the world.  Their freshness is essential to their exotic aroma, taste and lifespan so we really are stoked to be so close to the farms to reap from the harvest; and also proving yet another fab reason for the winter season.  

    If you are like me you quite likely haven't dined on fresh truffle too often or ever, but being a locally grown delicacy we'd certainly like to feature it on the nest menu in it's short season. Even if we have to pay a little more for it.  Our Welcome to Winter dinner is a great chance to join us and see what all this truffle fuss is about and enjoy heartwarming dishes, local wines and nesty delights with the unbeatable snugness of a crackling open fire.
    Of course the other splendid thing about winter is the fashion.  We'll be awarding a prize for the best winter hat or beannie so embrace the wonders of winter and call ahead to book in for this cosy little night out.

    When: Saturday 22 June
    Where: Nest
    Time: 6pm-6:30pm Fireside Welcome drink
    Cost: Four Course Dinner + Arrival Drink $62   
     Featuring truffle, wine and winters harvest in hearty Nesty dishes.
      
    With guest speakers from the local truffle and wine making community!

    Apples and Quinces

    Apples and Quinces

    "Good apple pies are a considerable part of our domestic happiness." -- Jane Austen
    With the bounty of apples adorning the local trees we are taking pleasure in finding ways to help create such domestic happiness in Tumbarumba.  Of course I'm sure Miss Austen also meant to include Apple Oaty Cinnamon Muffins, Tarte Tatin, Apple Blueberry Crumble, Lumberjack...

     




    If you have any apple delights you'd like us to try, we are open for suggestions.  I'm also quite certain there are a good many seasoned apple pie bakers in these parts or eager young cooks who just need a bag of fresh apples to create their own domestic bliss.   Well we're also blessed here to have a seasonal supply of delicious (in variety too ha) local apples stocked daily by our resident lady-of-the-orchard Heather.

    So call in anytime we're open for your pick of fresh apples.  You will probably think they are too nice to put in a pie and eat them fresh! 

    Quinces are another favourite at this time of year. Watching  this alluring fruit transform from a greeny lemon colour to a deep ruby is a treat.  Slow cooked and served in their syrup with cream & toasted almonds these treasures were a hit on the dessert menu last week.  The quince season continues and so will our quincey concoctions that we look forward to sharing with you.
