Menu de Degustation
What a fabulous evening! Jimmy Shu and his team delighted us with
12 little plates of perfection.
A showcase of local produce - from Elcho Island Mud Crab to the
tiny mauve flower of a wild pea used to tint the delicate and heavenly
blue dumplings of corn fed chicken.
See the full menu and wines here.
An informal get together with Alan
Saunders on Patty's verandah at Cullen Bay. We nibbled on Cheryl's
delicious antipasto plates and watched another perfect sun set over
the marina as Alan educated us on the finer points of Gumbo, Jambalaya
and all things Cajun. We later presented Alan and his producer Kerry
Stewart with some of our own local produce including Tropical Preserve
jams and Darwin's famous chilli sauce.
Cooking Class with David
Taylor. A great tropical menu
and an evening that was enjoyed by all. David is knowledgeable,
informative and highly entertaining and we will certainly be organising
another class with him next year.
This time we took to the water. A sunset cruise on Darwin Harbour
aboard a restored pearling lugger. Accompanied by what other than
Pearl Shell Meat. The wine flowed freely and most people had managed
to find their sea legs by the end of the evening!
Our first 'big' event! Dinner at Sonsie Restaurant in Parap was
a huge success. Here's the menu.
Unfortunately, someone forgot the camera!
Pancakes and local preserves. Accompanied by bubbly with mango liqueur.
Venue - Patty's verandah overlooking Cullen Bay Marina.
A tasting of smoked and sashimi ocean farmed barramundi from the
Tiwi Islands. Venue - Twilight on Lindsay, Darwin. Our inaugural
event was extensively advertised in an effort to entice membership
- it worked.
