Schottlander 100% pure blood wagyu beef dinner
Thursday 12th March 2015

Furthering my efforts to use quality local produce I have bought a pure blood Wagyu heifer from Schottlander’s farm in Gerringong. Not only is it local, it is some of the tastiest beef I have ever had. With the assistance of the farmer, I am butchering the 350kg cow myself, and will then utilise the entire beast from nose to tail. The prime cuts will be available mid-week on our 3 course menu, and I have also put together this 7 course event to show you how good nose to tail eating can be. Cost is $120pp, including a glass of french champagne on arrival, and bookings can be made from our website.


Beef tartare, sautéed mushrooms, parsnip chips  and truffle dressing
Wagyu beef terrine, celeriac remoulade and picalilli vegetables

Braised shoulder, Paris mash, shallots, smoked beef flank and red wine jus
