Lunch @ Centonove

To celebrate the start of Autumn, we've returned to Centonove for a leisurely Saturday lunch. As it's a lovely sunny day we order a bottle of Prosecco to see us through the meal.


For starters


Paalo tries the pizza again - this time it's fontina, Prosciutto and rocket. It's a toss up for Paalo as to which pizza he preferred - perhaps a half and half would be perfect.


I try out the Antipasto plate - a rather delicious choice. There is a feta stuffed fig wrapped in
Prosciutto, bruschetta with goat cheese and beetroot, stuffed quail roulade, smoked salmon lasagna, porcini mushroom arancini, duck confit pie served with lentils, crunchy grissini and a rocket and parmesan salad

For mains:


Paalo has the Penne with Black Angus Beef, aged balsamic and radicchio


I have the Parmesan, Lemon and thyme crumbed Veal Scaloppini with Buffalo Mozarella, tomato and basil salad

We also ordered a side:


Sautéed brocollini with garlic and wood-fired honey roasted pumpkin with almonds.

The details:

    I LOVE this blog - just stumbled onto it randomly. Do you work in food professionally, or is this a pet passion?

    I'm hanging out for a decadent brunch this Sunday - where would you recommend if you don't mind? (Yes, I'm in Melbourne).

  2. Thanks Kyla - we aren't in the food mafia we just like to go out!

    As for a decadent sunday brunch - I probably wouldn't class it as decadent but the sunday offerings at the Press Club are pretty enjoyable, probably more so if you are in a larger group. Another suggestion would be Pearl - it's a bit more expensive but worth every cent.
