Degustation Dining with Russell Blaikie during TASTE Great Southern

Degustation menus are the latest type of gourmet experience. With a multitude of small portion courses on offer, diners can be more daring with their palate. We were expecting a night of taste bud tickling decadence. We enjoyed champagne - Parish Lane, Blanc de Blanc 2008 ~ Albany upon arrival before moving to the long tables where we indulged in 6 courses of food. Specially selected wines were matched with the food and it was all topped of with a scrumptiously decadent dessert. Thank's to Russell Blaikie from Must Wine Bar for wowing us with your culinary skills and talents and to The Rocks for the awesome outdoor venue. Local produce was used in all the dishes, from Ravenill Dairy, Ringwould Cheese, Mount Barker Chicken to all the wines that accompanied the meal.
