Can you believe it, muppys is one!
It has been an incredible journey so far. I started my blog while on maternity leave to record all the many different recipes I had been cooking. Little did I know that I was joining a whole new community of amazing people sharing their food and lives.
And now I am back at work part time and my posts have slowed down but I still am here, alive and well, and still loving this little place I can escape to. Thanks to everyone for joining me.
Now I wanted to do a special post, and what more special then to share my 10th Wedding Anniversary lunch at Flying Fish.
The meal went for four hours, and I did have matching wines with every course.
Our young children really enjoyed themselves and we were complimented by fellow diners on their behaviour.
We loved every single course.
|Crostini with salmon mousse|
|Ocean Trout with apple and pear vinaigrette.|
|Soft shell crab sushi|
After the waiter had read us the specials and disappeared my daughter lent over 'mummy, i heard that man say sushi'. So yes we obliged and our daughter was very happy with her soft shell crab sushi.
|Heirloom tomatoes with tomato cloud, sheep's milk labneh and olive|
This was our official first course and it was so refreshing and light.
The tomatoes were just incredible.
|Seared yellow fin tuna with ruby red grapefruit, sweet pork crackling and black pepper caramel|
This was my husbands favourite course, it really was a delicious combination of flavours and a very popular dish, we saw many plates of it being brought out.
Of course we had the most beautiful view of Sydney harbour right next to our table.
The boats brought much joy to my little boy.
|Confit of Petuna ocean trout with pea mousse, whey, puffed skin, trout roe, nori and pea crumb|
This course was heavenly, the trout melted in your mouth and the roe was magnificent.
The pea mousse was full of air and the pea flavour balanced perfectly.
|Crispy soft shell crab with black pepper curry leaf sauce and crispy shallot and coconut salad|
I really loved the way each course brought you something different but yet was in harmony with the rest of your meal. We were pleased this one included the Sri Lankan flavours.
The crab was amazing, so succulent.
|Ruby red grapefruit and orange palate cleanser|
My daughter with her delicious ice cream, I did sneak a mouthful :)
|Wagyu sirloin with miso braised short rib, pickled shitake, radish, edamame beans and yuzu butter|
This was my favourite course (I think, it was all SO good), which is surprising as I would probably not have ordered it from a menu.
The short rib was bursting with flavour, the steak so so tender, the whole dish was just divine.
|Holy goat, Brigid's well, white peach|
This was our cheese course.
My daughter loves goats cheese so we very kindly shared some with her but I didn't want to!
|Peanut butter parfait, lime curd, banana mousse|
This was not actually on the degustation menu but I am so pleased we were fortunate enough for the kitchen to offer it.
Our dessert was really alot of fun. We were quite amused when we were given this 'ash tray', our waiter almost seemed embarrassed.
It was passionfruit brulee on the bottom, topped with a watermelon rockmelon layer, and a crumb.
It was really delicious, and not too sweet.
As you can see my little boy probably ate half of mine, he loved it!
We were given a beautiful tray of petit fours with coffee but we all jumped in and gobbled them up so quick.
It really was a beautiful day to spend on the harbour enjoying the most amazing lunch with my family.
