Join Mic on the ultimate seasonal food treasure hunt. Discover how to identify the amazing local flavours that can be found by those in the know, including native greens, wild asparagus, delicious and safe mushrooms, salt bush and a cornucopia of other ingredients.
Then sit back overlooking sparkling Frederick Henry Bay and enjoy the rewards of your effort. Mic creates a 6-course luxury lunch from your finds, mixed with spectacular local seasonal meat and seafood, and matched with a selection of wines from the nearby multi-award-winning Bream Creek Vineyard.
With guest numbers limited to six, it’s an exclusive chance to slow down for a daytime feast and immerse yourself in the provenance of foraged – and other – ingredients. Mic’s not against getting some help as he preps and cooks, but he’s equally happy if you relax and reconnect with the joy that comes from a long, lux lunch.
While you eat, talk with Bream Creek Founder, Fred Peacock or General Manager, Rafe Nottage about the process of making their boutique wines.
