Chef and author Jane Grover is looking forward to sampling local produce at the Old Vic Inn.Renowned chef Jane Grover will use local ingredients cooking Lamb, Pine Nuts and Mint Rounds among other dishes at Canowindra’s NSW Wine Festival celebrations on March 30.
A menu released for the event at the Old Vic Inn shows the evening will begin with a first course of Bruschetta with Tomato and Basil, Beef and Vegetable Rolls, Savoury Muffins, Hummus and Bubba Ganoush.
Ms Grover will cook Chicken and Lemongrass Skewers, Lentil and Sweet Potato Patties and Pork and Pistachio Terrine in a demonstration for the second course.
The main course will feature Herbed Crumbed Pork Cutlet with Caramelised Apple, Roast Vegetables and Beans with Almond and Mint Crumble, while apple crumble will be served for dessert.
The multi-course tasting menu will showcase local and seasonal produce, matched with the region’s award winning organic wines.
Ms Grover said she was eager to sample what the region has to offer.
“I am really excited about my return visit to the Cowra-Canowindra region,” she said.
President of the Cowra Region Vineyard Association Sam Statham said the event will sample Ms Grover’s recipes, with the menu referenced from her cookbook Naked Food.
“When you have the meal you can see the book and see how it’s done. It’s not just a wine dinner. It’s the first time Canowindra’s had an educational chef to do a demonstration,” he said.
“It will feature a lot of whole food ingredients and healthy cooking as well as using local produce.”
Jennifer Beasley, manager at The Old Vic Inn, said locals can enjoy trying the region’s food and wine in a relaxed atmosphere.
Ingredients will be sourced from local and regional suppliers Gaskill Greens, Trunkey Creek, Breakout River Meats, Canowindra Country Bakehouse and Manildra’s flour mills.
The event starts Saturday 6.30pm and tickets are available at the Old Vic Inn and Cowra Visitor Information Centre.
