Looking back at the front door from the living room.
Sorry everyone… this is going to be a long post but we’ve had such a great day and I wanted to share it with you ! Our friend Brian from South Africa, is visiting . We woke up this morning on the farm to 144mm of rain , so we decided to go out for the day. We have a beach house at Mollymook, on the South Coast of NSW – 3 hours from Sydney. We wanted to show Brian the house, (see photos above ) and as it was raining there as well, we decided to go on to Cupitt’s Winery for lunch. Cupitt’s, is just outside Mollymook, sitting prettily on top of a green hill out in the countryside !
Love the old stone walls and gate post at the entrance
Gorgeous old stone building
The outside stone oven which the chef uses every day !
Lunch was superb !! World-class food in the countryside of NSW, Australia !! Rosie and Griff Cupitt happened to be there for lunch as well ! Big plans are underfoot for new developments at Cupitt’s and read more about them here . Did you know that they also have accommodation at Cupitt’s ?
My beautiful starter – Cured Petuna Ocean Trout on warm Kipflers with Rocket, Mustard and Dill
Michael’s starter – grilled Calamari with Lime mayonnaise !
Michael and my main course – grilled Snapper with a tender, seared Scallop with Celeriac Remoulade
Brian had pan-fried Cone Bay Barramundi on Orzo Pasta, Mussels and a light curry Nage.
Delicious greens !
The “piece de resistance”….the Chocolate Fondant with Armagnac and Prune ice- cream !!
Rosie introduced me to the Pastry Chef – Emma Kate seen here holding her delicious Chocolate Fondant !!
Spotless kitchen and everyone terribly busy !
Muddy boots outside the wine-tasting room
Beautiful autumn vines .
Then it was back to South Acres, only 1hr 30 mins drive. We arrived home to a blanket of mist, enveloping the farm, drifting slowly back and forth.
Welcome to South Acres Farm
The Tea House
Ever so curious !
The eerie silhouette of a dead tree in the paddock.
