Head Chef of ABODE Bistro & Bar, Anthony Naylor, comments “To me, food has always been about sourcing the very best produce and making that produce the hero of the dish. By working closely with our local suppliers we can utilise the freshest Australian produce available, which allows my team to enhance the flavours and showcase the distinctive elements in an honest, open style. Our philosophy is focused on making honest food that’s elegant yet approachable. We’ve created this tasting menu to invite guests to experience an explosion of well-balanced, fresh and authentic flavours.”
Start the evening with an amuse-bouche of smoked paprika and sweet corn soup with crab, lime and salmon roe. Delight in pan-seared scallops, cauliflower purée, pickled radish, shaved broccoli, pancetta and lemon oil, with understated elements of dehydrated cauliflower and scallop dust, before a taste of the baby beetroot and goats cheese salad with puy lentils, barberries, orange gel and cumin crackers. Next, enjoy the confit Quaker’s Hill duck breast with wilted greens, mushrooms, bacon and red wine jus before the warming Flinders Island rump of lamp, smoked aubergine, onion marmalade, asparagus, sheep’s milk feta, olive paint and confit tomato. To finish, treat yourself with the banana parfait, coconut sponge and salted cashews with butterscotch sauce, served with house-made ice-cream.
The à la carte menu offers further delectable bites. Experience the heightened flavours of pan-fried ocean trout, caramel yoghurt, carrot purée, spinach, botarga and trout roe or try the corn-fed chicken supreme with ricotta gnocchi, Tuscan cabbage and tarragon jus.
