FRESH ON FRIDAY – 21 JULY 2017

 

Cauliflower & Green Lentil Tikka Masala - $13.80 ea (600ml -1 generous main or 2 sides) - dairy free/vegetarian

Our version of an Indian restaurant favourite – with spiced roasted cauliflower, green lentils, red onions and red peppers in a delicious mildly spiced creamy tomato based sauce. 

Croque Monsieur - $9.80 ea (a hearty single portion)

The French took the toasted sandwhich to new levels when they invented this dish. Made with fresh sourdough slices of bread, gouda and gruyere cheeses, shaved Champagne Ham, and topped off with a wholegrain mustard béchamel sauce with more cheese.  We are presenting this in a foil dish so you can just pop in a hot oven for 15 minutes – et Voila!!

 Coq au Vin - $8.90 (1cutlet) / $16.90 (2 cutlets) / $29.90 (4 cutlets)

Chicken thigh cutlets braised gently with button mushrooms, baby onions, bacon, rosemary, fresh rosemary and thyme and red wine.  A traditional French dish, and very delicious.

 Old Fashioned ‘Shearers’ Mince Pies - $15.50(2) / $23.50(3-4)

An old and traditional recipe, packed full of beef mince in a dark and delicious gravy, ready to cook in a moderate oven for approx. 35 – 45 mins (depending on the size). 

 Vanilla Rice Pudding with Black Doris Plum Puree  $10.80  (600ml  serves 2)

We think this speaks for itself!
