Agrarian Kitchen

After brownies and lattes we had a wander around the Agrarian Kitchen's farm in our gumboots with our French market baskets and a pair of secateurs. After patting the pig and collecting eggs, we cut ourselves some mint, silverbeet and English spinach from the garden beds and dug down into the little mounds to find white asparagus before forking out bunches of fragrant parsnips.


We split into pairs and cooked away and sat down to our meal of melt-in-your-mouth gnocchi with spinach, white asparagus & mint (topped with crunchy breadcrumbs and lashings of parmesan), followed by braised wagyu agrodolce (made by Mr & I) which fell apart with the touch of the fork served (phew!) with lard roast potatoes, parsnips and artichokes and a silverbeet gratin - all with matching Tasmanian wines. Only to finish with honey poached apple and wild damson jam steamed puddings with cinnamon custard. Ah very full we were.
