The Sydney Morning Herald has asked a few notable foodies what they would prepare if they had $1000 to spend.
For us it would be an intimate dinner for 4.
There would be Cloudy Bay Pelorous bubbles to start
Bluff oysters with Paulownia Rose
Lobster Thermadore with Wooing tree Blondie
And for dessert poached pluots with creme fraiche with schoc chilli chocolate shavings and a nice Forrests The Doctors Nobile Chenin Blanc
For a Wild Food alternative
A starter of Pan Fried Blue cod livers on Vogels 12 grain. Trinity Hill Viognier
Wild fallow deer back steaks with Huakararo Maori potatoes and sauteed puha -Te Motu Dunleavy 2005 Cab blend
And for dessert freshly picked blackberry shortcake with titoki infused icecream with a Seresin late harvest riesling
Nothing too fussy..
