Things to do: Stop shifting houses, stop going to conferences, start finding time to post my backlog of stuff up here.
Beginning with the second wonderful restaurant we visited on our weekend in Tasmania, Smolt.
We were perhaps a little worried about following up the absolutely marvellous lunch we had at the Source with another upmarket dinner, as we didn’t want to go away disappointed. We were sensible enough to wait a day between the two, but it turned out we had nothing to fear, as Smolt delivered some fantastic food, with friendly service in a nice atmosphere.
M started with half a dozen oysters, while I had a soup from the specials board, with beans and pork and delicious all wrapped up in a wonderful bowl and served with nice crusty bread. The oysters were fresh as you can imagine, and we both enjoyed these courses.
For the main course, I couldn’t go past the venison, while M took up the challenge of a lamb ragout with home made tagliatelle.
Did I mention that they do marvelous side dishes as well? This one was spiced deep fried cauliflower.
