The dinner will be served family style - which means shared plates for the table.

On Arrival:

A soup of pearl barley with seasonal vegetables, garlic, herbs and speck - a warming brew that leaves you wanting more, that lovely smoky flavour of speck comes through beautifully.

To drink: Prosecco Marca Oro Extra Dry

First Course:

House made blood sausage sits on a base of sauerkraut, walnuts and chestnuts, covered with a pine nut crumble.

To drink: Pinot Bianco 2008 Doc Weissburgunder

Second Course:

Risotto of Renette apples and almonds - you may at first think that sounds a bit strange but no, apples feature strongly in the cuisine of Trento-Alto Adige. A creamy risotto intermingled with a slight crunch from the apple pieces.

To drink: Pinot Bianco 2008 Doc Weissburgunder

Third Course:

A very soft and creamy polenta is topped with a rich ragu of wild boar - the boar is sourced from NSW. It's one of those dishes that are made for bread to help soak up those rich juices.

To drink: Lagrein 2006 Castel Turmhof

Dolci:

A tradition Austrian Apple Strudel served with cream - we felt a bit like Oliver after this, "please sir, can we have more?" A truly sublime strudel.
