On the day before i returned back to Sydney they took me around to all the wineries (there are so many there, part of the reason they decided to live there...) and lunch at this restaurant in the middle of nowhere.
Potted Smoked Garlic Prawns - $22
With the prawns came barossa valley speck and goats cheese gnocchi which just melted in your mouth. After the platter i was quite full, but it tasted so good that i had to eat it all! There were so many huge prawns in there too which was fantastic.
Smoked Duck Salad - $24
Dad got the duck which Mum already picked that he was going to get it (which is something mum likes to do..). Didn't seem to have to much duck, but it was all hiding under the spinach, orange segments and walnuts. I love duck, but walnuts i do not. I am also still not a big fan of fruit in things. I like my fruit in desserts.
Mum opted for the lamb cutlets with sweet potato mash, caramelised fig jam, and sweet potato chips (those are the shards that are hiding the lamb). Makes your mouth water doesn't it.
