There's nothing I love better than going for a little road trip around the Canberra surrounds. There's so many lovely places to explore, and on this particular fine sunny weekend, it was off to Grazing at Gundaroo.
A little country style restaurant, Grazing is a rustic restaurant in a old style building established in 1835. You can even have a wander around their kitchen garden, and pick up cartons of fresh eggs from their chooks.
I wanted to have a sample of their tempting veggie produce, so the vegetarian risotto was a perfect option. Risotto with deliciously sweet garden herb roasted butternut squash and it's puree, toasted pinenuts, sage and Italian parmesan. I couldn't get enough of this dish!
Almost too pretty to eat was this Turkey dish - roast turkey wing with chorizo, sweetcorn polenta, asparagus, almond and parmesan crumbs and double-chicken reduction. Loved this dish too, the vegetables really shined in this dish, especially the super sweet corn and asparagus.
Dessert time, and a coffee pick me up in the form of a latte.
Their desserts were absolutely amazing too - must be the awesome fresh produce. This one is the peach tarte tatin - almond infused house made puff pastry and peach tart with honey & vanilla syrup, vanilla ice-cream and pistachio
Creme brulee - Lavender creme brulee with raspberry sorbet <3
I can imagine how nice and toasty it would be in winter with the fireplace going!
Various products from the region on sale, as well as fresh eggs
I also had a wander around the local shops, love the knick knacks you can only find at these little country town shops
It's about an 1/2 hour drive out of Canberra and well worth a visit. I'm still dreaming about the peach tarte tatin.... Mmmm
