Farm kitchen events for June and July

5.22.2012

We held our first cooking class at the Mandagery Creek Farm Kitchen on Sunday. Hosted by Michael Manners, one of regional Australia's finest chefs, we cooked some beautiful, easy venison recipes and then all sat down to lunch together. The highlight was Michael's Medieval venison casserole, closely followed by a simply roasted rack with red wine sauce. 

So now the ice is broken and we have loads of events in the pipeline, please see below and send me an email if interested in more information or making a booking.
