The Zin House

If, once in a while, someone doesn't get the ethos of The Zin House, it's a reaffirmation that Kim Currie's food is so intimate, so personal, so original and so ego-free that it's almost Zen-like in its pleasure. There's no roller-coaster ride of unfamiliar flavours and techniques; just dishes that tie together the produce, seasons and spirit of the district. In its elegant vineyard setting, produce rules the day. Salmon cured with lemon myrtle liqueur, with smoked-trout pâté, heirloom beetroot and cucumber with a little fresh horseradish cream, say, or ravioli of saffron pasta with three cheeses, garlic, chilli, mushrooms and zucchini. Or a juicy lamb cutlet with an intense tomato and basil sauce, new-season potatoes, and a tomato, rocket and rye corn salad. This is food that zings with a lovely astringency, the sour never far from the sweet. The Zin House is an oasis of passion that illuminates everything from the garden produce to the engaging service.
