Flavours of the Valley

The menu reads like a gourmet’s dream, taking diners on a culinary journey through the Yarra Valley. Start off the gastronomic exploration with a charming canapé from Chandon – local crayfish decked with Yarra Valley caviar on a tender blini.

Following this, Coombe will lure your taste buds with their zesty green yuzu kosho with dill, pickled kohlrabi, and a touch of the Valley’s caviar. The third course sees Oakridge’s masterful touch with a succulent dry-aged duck harmoniously coupled with castle franco, beetroot, rhubarb, and a hint of orange.

Tokar Estate offers the closing savoury act with their roasted lamb backstrap, tastefully balanced with charred zucchini, spiced yoghurt and a sprig of mint. To finish off this epicurean voyage, Crown Melbourne will serve a selection of petit fours, as a sweet sign-off.
