Aaron Cole continues to wow Mudgee and its visitors with his assured interpretation of French farmhouse cuisine. Cole knows how deeply the soul of French cooking is rooted in the fruits of the soil, and his food is authentic in flavour and spirit. On Friday and Saturday nights, the modest café fills with the regulars and the well informed, seduced by the reputation of his trust-the-chef inspirations - usually a couple of entrées and desserts and three mains. Hits include a rustic pork terrine with peach chutney, a texturally playful rolled goose egg omelette with roast vegetables, and a beautifully crafted confit lamb shoulder. They are all suffused with gentle "Mudgee farmhouse" understatement, but with each element perfectly judged. The simple room, too, is appropriately understated and the service is sometimes daringly so. Service put right, this place is a template for regional dining.
