We have been enjoying a busy 2014, this year we celebrated our third birthday. Melbourne Food and Wine Festival’s Winter Roast Collection was a successful and fun event. We are looking forward to our series of Saturday lunches on the rooftop terrace titled “These are a few of our favourite things” in November with Age Good Food Month.
Make sure you also have a look at some of our recent past events.

Dee Nolan's 'A Food Lovers Pilgrimage to France'

Dee Nolan’s ‘A Food Lovers Pilgrimage to France’


Dee’s French pilgrimage winds through magnificent and changing landscapes: from Burgundy’s vine-covered slopes to the gastronomic capital of Lyon; up onto the vast windswept meadows of the Aubrac plateau; along the dramatic Lot river; through the gentle hills of Gascony and, finally, to the trout-filled rivers of the Pyrenees.
Join us on Wednesday 5th November as Nicky creates a menu inspired by Dee Nolan’s new book ‘A food lovers pilgrimage to Frace’
