This afternoon we ventured out to the Swan Valley for a little R&R. It was a feast for the senses and a pleasant way to regain some creative inspiration. With camera in hand I happily snapped away at the beautiful scenery.
Following some wine tasting and a visit to Caversham House we dined at Sandalford Winery.
Estate Baked Sour Dough, Beurre Lescure
Rottnest Scallops Rockefeller, Crispy Jamón, Herbed Hollandaise
Saffron Fettuccine, Prawn, Chorizo, Shallot, Chilli, Manjimup Black Truffle, Pecorino
Grilled Derby Barramundi Fillet, Sweet Potato Gratin, Artichoke Cream
Wine of the day:
Prendiville Chardonnay – this was a delicious full bodied buttery bouquet which went down a treat!
I’m putting this decadent afternoon down to a celebration of the beautiful Italian phrase “dolce far niente” (meaning: the sweetness of doing nothing or pleasant idleness)
