We’re delighted to have been mentioned on Channel 9’s Morning Show this morning. In a segment covering new food regions around the state, our beautiful Shoalhaven region was included.
Among the mentions were our mates at Berry Sourdough Bakery and Oyster Hut of Jim Wild – shucking our favourite Greenwell Point oysters
Here’s a little exerpt from the Channel 9 blog and click here to read the full story.
The Shoalhaven region has long been the summer holiday playground for nearby city dwellers, who have been coming to bask on the pristine beaches of Jervis Bay and beyond for generations. Balmy climate, lush valleys and 160 kilometres of some of the purest, whitest coastline in New South Wales, it’s surprising how long the Shoalhaven has been flying under the radar – now it’s a the burgeoning food and wine scene as well.
Berry Sourdough Café – charming heritage listed building, the buzzing café and bakery was one of the first establishments to put the region on the food map. The European-style pastries or the obvious favourite – the woodfire-baked, organic sourdough bread – will serve you well on the road. Otherwise, stay for a lunch of European countryside classics like sourdough welsh rarebit with pickled onions or a Brittany-style fish stew, depending on the season. http://berrysourdoughcafe.com.au/
Hungry Duck – David Campbell, who brings his experience from Tetsuya’s, Billy Kwong and Wokpool, is as passionate about Asian cuisine as he is dedicated to the sustainable food philosophy, with a kitchen garden that customers can stroll through to get to know their food before it reaches their plate and a menu that supports local farmers and producers. http://hungryduck.com.au/
Oyster hut of Jim Wild – Right at Greenwell Point and straight out fo some deep south movie set – tt=hink ramshcackle huts strewn with white oyster shells – there are any number of oyster huts but you have to drop by Jim’s place – ex World Champion Shucker – and legend amongst shuckers. There amazing rock oysters do not get any tastier or fresher and it is a scene to behold. p02 4447 1498
