Easter with the family in Mudgee was an utterly indulgent affair, and looking through the photos from our lunch, I want to do it all again. My sister made the genius decision to have the gathering catered for, and turned to her favourite caterer, Rachael McCarthey. The clever chef is also a favourite of mine, and is who I used at our Mudgee wedding 5 years ago. Rachael’s food is contemporary and hearty, and she always uses seasonal and often local produce….I only wish she was in Sydney too!
We also managed a long lunch at The Zin House, which is a fairly new restaurant to enter the Mudgee food scene. I didn’t have my camera with me, so didn’t get to capture the lovely interiors in the modern farmhouse that has been converted in to a restaurant, but it’s really the food that you’ll want to go for. The restaurant specialises in weekend lunches – long and leisurely ones, and the owner/chef Kim Currie uses produce from the 1,000 acre organic and biodynamic Tinja farm (where the restaurant is based). I think I’ve got the perfect combination for a lovely weekend getaway: Combine a meal at this restaurant, a visit to my sister and brother in laws winery, Logan Wines and rest your weary head at The Perry Street Hotel. You can thank me later!
I hope you all had a lovely Easter,
