WE’ve finally ,mastered the icecream parfait. White chocolate, golden syrup & cranberry semi freddo with strawberries, caramel sauce & oatmeal crumb……..brilliant
In search of perfection Jo has added another chocolate into the blend for her chocolate mousse……..that’s four now. Still served the same way sandwiched between vanilla biscuits with kahlua cream & a scoop of our homemade vanilla icecream.
Local calamarie is back, done the usual way on a bed of dashi infused silverbeet AKA spinach with some sesame sauce. A long time fav on the menu. I necver get sick of cooking it. Simple & tasty…..Marks
The lemon flan is at it’s best when made with Meyer lemons. This batch is from my back yard & I must say is particularly good. A scoop of passionfruit icecream & some meringue, has turned this dish into a minor classic.
We LOVE the Bay of Martyrs Blue from nearby Port Campbell. In the line of the great blues…stilton, gorgonzola piccante & roquefort…….and I must say as good.
In the ever changing world of wines by the glass at Marks we are featuring . Dave Jemmeson’s Pinot Gris from his own project pacha mama Wines…great quality & value. A delicious local Riesling from the excellent Dinny Goonan Vineyard in nearby Bambra, our local Prince Albert Pinot Noir, the stunning 09 vintage, of which there is not much left.. More difference with some yummy gamay from my favorite Beaujolais Village: Moulin auVent…..spicy with delicious acids that not only go well with food; but also extremely well with air! I like a lot. The 08 Gosling Creek Pinot Noir is drinking sooo well today.
Red Rock Winery from Alvie, near Colac, has produced a wonderful Botrytis Semillon. We are serving this delicious nectar with our classic banana & macadamia nut pudding…….an excellent match.
Open for dinner Tuesday to Saturday from 6pm. Weekend lunch 11 to 3..
This is our 20th season in Lorne…food cooked & served well, local where possible, but not turning our back on the rest of the world…………that’s us.
This Winter we are renovating…exciting stuff.
