The Cook And The Chef......


~ Maggie Beer and Simon Bryant ~      Portrait entitled  "Simpatico"  by Barry McCann

Just up the highway and down a few country lanes
and we were there - I love visiting Maggie Beer's fabulous Farm Shop
It's a restaurant come produce shop with the most
delectable range of home grown products
plus the perfect spot for a long lunch.
Maggie has created some wonderful picnic box fare
that can be eaten out on the terrace overlooking the lake.

Pheasant, porcini mushroom terrine wrapped in sour-cream pastry
with salad greens. vino-cotto vinaigrette and Maggie's cabernet sauce!
or
Duck, sherry and peppercorn pate with cornichons
freekah salad and wood oven bread
.............................
Yum!! to both




The set where the the tv show
"The Cook and The Chef" was filmed
is now used for cooking demonstrations

They were such a curious partnership, but it certainly worked.

I loved that show, I think they worked so well together, that is just a dream kitchen, who wouldn't want to cook in a kitchen like that! Gorgeous photos Dianne.

J Bar said...

Cool. Always enjoy that show whenever I catch it.

Ann said...

I'd love to try some of her food. It looks so good.

Duck, sherry and peppercorn paté with cornichons – something to dream about! Crusty bread and with that I may drink a nice dry cider from Normandie, what do you think?

Dianne said...

Vagabonde:- Dry Cider sounds just perfect!

How lucky you are to be close to this place. I would love to visit. maybe next time I'm in Adelaide. I loved her TV shows. Your photos are very enticing.

Love the vibrant colours in your photos, Dianne. And Maggie's surname... quite apt for a foodie, in an odd way:-)
