The Tassie black pepper is still exploding on my tongue as I pass through the “hugs now” security check at the Hobart Airport. But nothing, can compare with the magic afternoon of pure taste delight I have been privvie to at Frogmore’s Creek.
What an experience – what a delight – what a treat.
Ruben Kopens the head chef is a rival for World Famous chef Heston Blumenthal made famous by his TV shows and eclectic food creations.
Ruben, friends with infamous Heston, will exceed your expectations. That self limiting belief line where one’s internal chatter says “I am not worthy of such grand fan fare”, well sit down sista, you are!
Born in Holland he understands the EXPRESSION of food as an experience, a place in time … a memory.
If you have ever fantasized about how YOU can become a Heston excipient, then look no further, come to Frogmore and be treated to a world class dining experience.
Frogmore Creek Wines and it’s restaurant are located outside of Hobart between the towns of Cambridge and Richmond. The winery offers a few labels, many with awards. Personally I have always loved their Meadowbank Mardi , and their 2007 Frogmore Creek Evermore Pinot Noir is a must for any cellar.
Today, however, I am here for the degustation experience by Ruben and his staff. It is to be a special Sunday afternoon.
Between each course, one is tantilised with palate cleansers, taste experiences and art pieces.
Today’s fare was as follows:
Prawn crackers with miso sprinkles and wasabi mayo
Then a morsel of panna cotta cauliflower jus and noodle, and olive tapenade just because.
To be served the best venison, followed by Whisky froth and desert.
Desert what can I say… an experience, an adventure, a food orgasm.
What can I say. It is by far the BEST eclectic meal I have part taken in.
The wines : Frogmore Creek pinot noir, then reisling and I would highly recommend the desert.
I look forward to visiting this enclave of elegance and fine dining not surpassed anywhere else in this grand land again.
Accolades Ruben and team (noteably Tristan and Meredith) – fine star dining at its TRUE best. Merci
