Birthday Dinner at 'Wild Duck'

onion jam and red wine glaze

As it is Becki's birthday we decided to go to the 'Wild Duck' for their degustation menu.  The food couldn't be faulted...Andrew you did an amazing job.

The waitresses although very friendly were not very attentive...we had to ask for water and for pepper.  It was not explained that the wine was an extra....and only small tasting glasses.  After our first course with the wine (40ml), we decided to just buy a bottle to enjoy. With everyone in the restaurant enjoying the menu, the smoke that came out of the dome that had the chowder shots in it was a bit much. Bread is also an extra....

We are glad we went as we can now explain to our guests how the menu works.  Many of our guests have been and have thoroughly enjoyed themselves....would we go again?  Absolutely!!

'The Hideaway Infusion' chef at work

Daniel Sharp our 'The HideAway Infusion' chef is the new and exciting chef at Greenpool Restaurant at Forest Hill Winery. HideAway hostesses decided that it was time to let Chef Daniel cook for us. It was birthday time for one of us. The meal was faultless and was definitely by far the best meal we have ever enjoyed. WOW what an awesome dining experience. Daniel you are a very talented chef and we are so pleased we have you on board for 'The HideAway Infusion' package.

After we had ordered Daniel took us down to the cellar door and suggested wine to accompany our meal. Great suggestions Daniel, the wine matched perfectly with our meal.

We ordered Marron with Lemon & Dill Risotto and garlic butter and gnocchi, burnt butter, sage, parmegano, charred cherry tomatoes.  No meal cooked by Daniel is ever complete with his delicious Albany Rock Oysters, which he prepares in so many different ways.  Becki had 6 of them and each one was cooked or prepared differently.

The Restaurant showcases elevated, uninterrupted and unrivalled views of sweeping Karri forests, set amidst the estate vineyard and rolling hills of Denmark from huge windows and glass doors in the restaurant. It is the perfect setting for this very talented young chef to showcase his amazing food.
