Where the Wild Things Are
When: Sunday 28th August 2022 – 10am-3pm
Where: The Barossa Cellar – 991 Stockwell Road, Vine Vale
Master chef and pastry artisan William Wood and trail-blazing winemaker Pete Schell have one thing in common – they know where their food comes from because they caught it themselves. A masterclass and lunch celebrating the hunter, where hare is the hero, these gents will bring their providore of food they’ve gathered throughout the year. You’ll learn what to do with wild caught game, how to dress your catch, make a delicious hare pie, safely select, and use ingredients like wild mushrooms, garlic, fennel seed, and pickled quince. Lunch will be a plentiful spread worthy of the hunter alongside the untamed and flavoursome Spinifex Wines.
The menu, though paddock to plate, is a reflection of William’s training, bringing together refined French cooking (he trained in 3-star Michelin restaurants) and his artisan pastry alongside gathered Barossa produce and hero ingredients. Naturally, Spinifex wines made by fellow Francophile and craftsman Pete Schell are the perfect foil to a generous lunch of nature’s provisions and spoils of the hunt.
