Inspirational Ethos

Please excuse the graininess of the photos - they were taken with Mr's (flashless) iPhone at night. Through beautiful gates, past a wooden wheelbarrow herb garden and through a beautifully lit raw brick corridor you arrive in the courtyard of Ethos. The food is served on handmade glazed pottery (as was a lot of the food from Agrarian Kitchen to Ethos and Gargistes in Hobart).


That's a duck egg boiled over a few few hours which we cracked into the the little mound of spinach and parmesan - amazing. The tea was served on a board with silk bags stitched closed with wood and stamped tags and chai and milk and hot water all served in amber medicine type bottles which also housed the little bunch of native flowers on our table. It really was beautifully and thoughtfully done. Low-emissions tapas they call it. The menu was pinned into the cover of old books lined with maps - ours was 'The Family Crotchet book'. The bill was delivered in another. Inspirational.
