GOANNA’S GREAT GOURMET ESCAPE
We’re thrilled to report that we had a brilliant weekend at the Gourmet Escape, enjoying a great response to our beer braised beef cheeks from locals and ‘Perthies’ alike. Fab weather and getting to taste a variety of dishes from other restaurants topped off a fantastic weekend.
Much experimentation and testing went into our dish. It was a beer braised beef cheek with truffle mustard, remoulade and pickled onion, all in a milk bun. We love using local produce, so we used Butterfield Beef (from the great southern region), beer from Eagle Bay Brewery and buns from Augusta Bakery.
At the 2012 Gourmet Escape we presented a pulled pork bun which is now the #1 selling item on our cafe menu. Expect to see our beer braised beef cheeks on the café menu soon!!
GOANNA PREPARES FOR GOURMET ESCAPE
Much experimentation and testing has gone into our 2013 Gourmet Escape dish. It’s a beer braised ox cheek in a bun with truffle mustard, remoulade and pickled onion, and we think it’s even more delicious than last year’s pork bun!
We love using local produce, so we’re using Butterfield Beef (from the great southern region), beer from Eagle Bay Brewery and buns from Augusta Bakery.
Last year the 2012 Gourmet Escape was a huge success for Goanna Gourmet. We sold out of pulled pork buns by 1pm Sunday, and they’re now the #1 selling item on our cafe menu. The Gourmet Escape marked the launch of Goanna Gourmet, which is now a highly successful catering business. This summer we are creating delicious food for a number of weddings, parties, picnics and
