    Late Summer Flavours

    Late Summer Flavours I was quoted long ago to have said 'It's all about the food'.  It was likely someone else's original phrase however it was then quoted back to me at almost every gathering of our friends and family.

    Well, now it really is all about the food at Nest.  Summer has departed and our menu has been updated to introduce Autumn flavours(see our menu page for the detail). Before we farewell summers bounty though, here is a taste of what we have enjoyed featuring in the cafe and on the road at recent events.  

    Dreams come true.  I feel abundantly blessed to have become owner of a garden with a fig tree.  At nest this meant fresh figs in muffins, on pizza, stuffed and wrapped in prosciutto for a starter, sugar grilled on a trifle, cooked to be jammy and teamed in savoury tartlets. 

    Being in Tumbarumba surrounded by world class vineyards doesn't just mean we get to serve up award winning wines in our restaurant.  Local vine leaves - thank you Courabyra Wines! - wrapped up a tasty canape of risotto among other tastes of summer starters at a recent catering soiree.



    Another summery way to serve our wonderful local fare is a sorbet of cider or wine.  At the recent Tumbanest (Nests evening dinner & live music affair post Tumbafest); we showcased Johansens Red Gamay as a sorbet with local berries and Batlow Cider sorbet served on a Juicy grilled white Peach. We haven't got a close up on the food here rather a snap of some dinner guests we enjoyed having. There is also a peak of Grace Kelly in our Moonlight Cinema feature for those who lingered long enough after the peachy tunes from Caleb & Alex. 

    Celebrities, Moonlight cinema, festivals, country soirees, summer to autumn; it is still all about the food.

    Fare thee well Summer, come enjoy the harvest of Autumn with us.
