provenance: thanks berry much!

This Provenance Food & Wine Co. degustation event was simply too tempting to miss! Six courses with a summer berry focus!

Sadly, the Edinburgh Gardens venue did not work out, so we dined on the faux lawns at Provenance. Our afternoon of summer berries began with warm ciabatta bread, strawberry infused olive oil, and raspberry salt.

Next, chicken and strawberry skewers with rocket salad,

followed by venison skewers with a blueberry sauce, on a bed of celeriac.

Desserts included summer pudding,

vanilla pannacotta with berry compote,

and blueberry tiramisu.

We drank a 2005 Point Leo Road Blanc de Noir (Methode Champenoise), which matched the plates perfectly! Our verdict? A charming and deliciously different Valentine’s Day experience.

About Vetti

I love good coffee, street art, tiki bars and kitsch. Adore roller derby and quiffs and vintage Hawaiian shirts. Enjoy a slice of my northside life!

  1. So not fair I could not come 😦 This sounds amazing! And I love Point Leo Rd wines – their Lagrein is one of my favourite Victorian reds.

  2. fitzroyalty: Damn right! You would have loved it…Haven’t tried Lagrein, but I’ve enjoyed their Pinot Grigio, which is superb with seafood.
