Chef's around Australia are taking hams to the next level this Christmas.
Bright blue scampi roe is popping up on menus across Australia. Here's why it's so special.
Lunch Fri-Sun 12.30pm-2pm
Dinner Wed-Sun 6pm-9pm
Chef Alex Delly combines big-city know-how with local terroir in a modern-Australian style that's as breezy and chilled as the township of Milton. While some claims of paddock-to-plate dining stretch credibility, there's little doubting St Isidore's credentials. Exhibit A: chickens roam freely in an adjacent paddock, contributing to an entrée of "this morning's egg", buckwheat, quinoa, silverbeet, béarnaise and puffed wheat. Exhibit B: "Dad's peppers" and the freshest, still-crisp zucchini accompany a whopping, 400gm grass-fed rib-eye smothered in horseradish and parmesan butter. And, finally, panna cotta is given a lift from honey harvested by "Julie from next door", apricots, rhubarb and lemon verbena. A local guitarist's bluesy, acoustic dabbling complements the warm, homely space and relaxed local service. The wine list is a whistlestop international tour of varieties and regions.
