Embrace the day with a stunning scenic coastal drive south of Melbourne and prepare to be constantly inspired and delighted by this diverse, boot-shaped region.
Today you're in for a treat for any serious food lover, welcome to 'Foodie Heaven' - your hosts own 27 acres of charming farm land with red fertile soil that allows them to grow and produce premium quality olives, grapes, herbs and veggies. They also raise sheep, chickens and fish and turn amazing produce from local farmers into a range of delectable goodies.
You'll get a whole new perspective on the concept of 'paddock to plate'.
Spend time in the kitchen with the chef. Cooking is done in a wood fire oven, with wood collected from fallen timber on the property. Your day changes seasonally, though you may: try your hand at curing olives grown on the farm, create handmade sausages in natural skins using fresh herbs and spices from our garden, or make mouth-watering gnocchi. You might master the art of sourdough bread, learn ways to cook with olives and olive oil, or successfully roast and make great coffee.
Later you'll sit back, relax and enjoy the surrounds while eating and drinking some of the finest food and wine the Mornington Peninsula has to offer.
After lunch take a drive down the road to sample cool climate wines from the barrel with one of our favorite wine makers, freshly made goats cheese from a local dairy or succulent strawberries and cherries from the fruit farms in the area.
Relax and recap on the comfortable drive home.
