Rating: One of the best kitchens of the trip
On Boxing Day (the 26th of December) we traveled around the Barossa valley sampling giant Australian wines.
Our tour guide set us up at Artisans of Barossa and it turned out to be a lovely spot with great contemporary food.
The view in the middle of the vineyards with casual outside dining as well.
The porch has a great view too.
As does the bustling modern interior.
Harvest sourdough with butter. Basic, but excellent!
Section 28 Monforte cheese and flat bread.
Fava and herb falafel with shanklish and roast pumpkin.
16 hour slow braised pork empanadas with house made relish. Meat in pastry is a classic and these were delicious!
Local heirloom tomato salad, Barossa Cheese Co feta and fresh herbs.
Slow cooked pulled lamb with millet salad, yoghurt and barberries. Yum! Lamb is best this way, slow cooked, and with yougurt!
Salted caramel sundae with toffee popcorn. Several times in Australia I had a caramel ice cream thing with popcorn. Kinda works as this was excellent.
Overall, a great meal from a great kitchen. Unfortunately, we were in a bit of a rush, but we slammed it in.
