Gastrology recently joined The Grand Hotel Melbourne for their recent series of delicious literary evenings.
Steamed Salmon Timballo, filled with shellfish mousse, drizzled with Pernod and champagne sauce, served with asparagus risotto
Matched with: Indigo Pinot Grigio, Beechworth, VIC
The Steamed Salmon Timballo, filled with shellfish mousse, asparagus and saffron risotto finished with pernod and champagne sauce certainly satisfied. A simple dish with showcased the natural sweetness of seafood.
John Batman Lamb Rump, served with a smoked eggplant compote, glazed with vincotto demi-glace
Matched with: Red Claw Shiraz, Mornington Peninsula, VIC
The lamb rump was an excellent dish. The lamb was very tender and fell away easily with the weight of our forks. Coated with a beautiful vincotto demi-glace and creamy smoked eggplant compote, it was a highly enjoyable dish.
Pecan Cheesecake with poached strawberries and warm chocolate ganache, served with apple jam
Matched with: De Bortoli Noble One Botrytis Semillon, Yarra Valley, VIC
We adored our dessert of Pecan Cheesecake with poached strawberries and warm chocolate ganache, served with apple jam. The cheesecake was deliciously rich without being too sweet.
