Dinner @ Church St Enoteca

There is new tasting menu option that's just started in time for the Spring Racing Carnival and knowing our love of degustation of all types, we just had to try it out.

The meal starts with glasses with Billiecart which is an utterly civilised way to begin any evening out.

They are followed by our first course

Pea and Ham Soup - its vibrant colour matched by its taste. A clean essence of pea.

Cured Meat Taster with truffled Potato Salad
This isn't part of the degustation but we so love our cured meats and the kitchen has just started serving their own cured products that we luckily, got a sneak tasting of them.

At the front is an excellent sopressa style salami studded with large chunks of melt in your mouth fat, you'd be hard pressed to find a better example. At the rear of the plate is the Waygu Braesola and in between, prosciutto and jamon.
