We ended up getting a shared grazing degustation which consisted of sparkling wine, 8 small shared courses and dessert. I was a "bad" vegetarian though and decided to eat all the meat and seafood dishes. Woops! Not going to lie, it was all amazingly delicious. We had dishes such as duck pancakes, scallops with a wasabi infused edamame crush, panfried halumi with a watermelon, coriander and mint salsa, soft shelled crab and a caramelised pear salad with baked ricotta.
(...So technically I'm not "vegetarian" anymore, but this is why I said I don't like labelling! I felt comfortable with the idea of eating meat at the time but 99% of the time I'm always going to choose the vegetarian option.)
Mmmm sparkling wine... it had a splash of creme de cassis too (not sure what that is though!)
Why hello there Adrian...
And this was our dessert plate which consisted of a flourless chocolate torte, dark cherry sorbet and a blood orange panna cotta. It was seriously good!
Afterwards we had cocktails at the Sydney Fringe Festival bar 5 Eliza, just off King St. I was pretty tired at uni the next day but it was worth it :)
And today, since the weather was nice we decided to have a picnic at Coogee beach! I made lots of yummy pesto pasta for lunch.
It was so sunny and warm...
Some brave people went swimming, I bet the water would have been freezing!
We walked around to Clovelly which was nice!
Just playing "tourist". Hello!
For my birthday, I asked for Heidi Swanson's cookbook, so hopefully that'll come in the mail soon :) I also received a voucher to get a massage, can't wait for that!!
Have a lovely weekend everyone :)
I'm going to be catching up with friends, finishing a nutrition assignment and hopefully doing lots of cooking! I actually just made this eggplant curry, which was delicious (and served it with cous cous), so if you have a spare eggplant I suggest you make it too ;)
