French-inspired luxury menu for Bastille Day at Crafers Hotel

Nestled in the Adelaide Hills at the perfect setting for an experience in French cuisine and culture, The Crafers Hotel is throwing a Bastille Day celebration menu for both lunch and dinner.

Only a 15-minute drive from Adelaide CBD, the hotel has crafted a menu of the best Western European dishes to celebrate France on its national holiday for three days from Thursday 14 July to Sunday 17 July.

The newly renovated hotel has pre-Romanesque arched doorways and exposed stone walls that complement the indoor space’s gothic trimmings and warm downlighting. The outdoor areas are open and spacious, derived from the French lifestyle, but reflective of Australia’s beloved pub life.

The four-course meal begins with the iconic baguette, sourced locally from the Adelaide Hill’s small town of Uraidla, fermented for 12 hours, and to be topped with Crafer’s house butter.

For entrees, your senses may be engulfed with the smokiness of their bay oysters that are kept simple with the classic tanginess of mignonette.

Or you can choose a velvety duck liver parfait that satisfies all the elements with a refreshing mandarin gel, a crispy duck skin crumb, a colourful firecracker radish that’ll quite literally have your mouth exploding with flavour and accompanied with a French staple, croute.

For meat lovers, you won’t be disappointed with the French take on steak. It’s a raw beef fillet – yes, raw – accompanied with carefully crafted deviled egg, combined with the acidity of pickle and the saltiness of caper dressed potatoes.

Mains will have you stuck for choice between their duck leg roulade that sits beside a bed of white polenta and is enhanced by the sweetness of baby carrots.

Or their tender wine infused beef bourguignon (stew) dish that can’t be eaten without its partner in crime, the pomme puree, or as we know it – mashed potato.

Wash down your meals with a bottle from their exclusive selection of fine food and vintage classic wines that can only be found at the award-winning hotel.

Such as the broad European to Scandinavian ranges that Ochota Barrels offer, the uniqueness of BK Wines who specialises in nonconformity to traditional wine and, of course, the French philosophies of Domaine Cornu and Domaine Prieure Roch.

Last but certainly not least, finish off your extended meal of everything French with none other than creme brûlée. The crack of the melted sugar as the back of your spoon punctures the surface and creamy custardy flesh oozes out will have you booking a flight to France!

The set menu is priced at $70 per person and while bookings are preferred, they are not necessary.
