Annual Garlic Dinner at Roadies Cafe | Sat 17 Jan 2015

The 4th annual Garlic Dinner at Roadies Cafe

This annual fine dining event has become a much-anticipated fixture on the Gloucester food-lover’s calendar. Each January, expert chef Will Lute provides an exceptional three course dinner with each course featuring the complexities of garlic. No, this isn’t a hit-you-in-the-taste-buds-tapas-style meal that lingers on your breath for days. Instead, the subtleties of locally-grown organic garlic are explored in all three courses, including the dessert.

Each year the menu is a closely guarded secret but here’s what was enjoyed at the 2014 Garlic Dinner, which featured extraordinary black garlic from Barrington River Organic Farm:

  • Entree: Seared Canadian scallops, wakame & sesame salad with black garlic syrup;
  • Main: Lamb fillet marinated in coffee & black garlic, served with roasted royal blue potato, steamed vegetables, jus and topped with a cauliflower & black garlic cream;
  • Dessert: Warm chocolate pudding with a sauce of chocolate, star anise & black garlic, served with vanilla bean ice-cream.
    VERDICT: Subtle, complex, divine!

The menu for 2015 will offer different sensations but will be another triumph for foodies.
