Angove Family Winemakers is shouting from the rooftop … they’ve re-appointed a former Adelaide East End Cellars chef and her menu is on your 2023 bucket-list.
Known for her Spanish flair and expertise in food and wine pairing, Georgie Rogers returns to the table in the new year, and she plans on serving up the best of our South Australian region.
“It’s been a big build up to our new menu and reopening, its all looking beautiful,” says Georgie.
“I’ve been on my farm in the Barossa prior and I have been breeding sheep and living on the land, but I decided to get back into my passion, which is cooking. I’ve found the kitchen is my natural place and I can’t wait to get back to where my heart is.”
And Georgie is diving straight in, serving up a special menu to kick off the New Year with all items inspired by her time on the land and working with local producers.
“The holidays are about celebrating with friends and family, and there’s nothing more enjoyable than being around a table of people who appreciate food,” says Georgie.
“I recommend starting with our stracciatella with lemon, fresh herbs and olive oil, focaccia, seared oyster mushroom skewers with fresh herb cream or our seared swordfish skewers.
“Then you can’t go past our Port Lincoln southern bluefin tuna crudo with lemon kosho and garlic scapes and our crumbed pork cotoletta, a must-have this festive season.
Then, what’s a good meal without a dessert, and according to Georgie, you can’t go past a hearty home-made remedy.
“Who can say no to aged muscatel and brandy custard ice cream? It’s a Christmas tradition and always a firm favourite.”
With an amazing line up of food, wine, gin and music, including Louis Fuller, Max Kelly, Jake Daulby, Georgia Germein this summer the Angove McLaren Vale Cellar Door is a must-do destination.
