Exciting new Spring menu at Aravina Estate September 23 2016
Aravina’s new Spring Menu showcases the tastes, colours and aromas of Spring with spectacular food combinations and techniques. The menu, filled with fresh seasonal ingredients and delicious, Western Australian proteins is crafted with the adept touch of Executive Chef Ben Day.
Foraged fresh from the region and Aravina’s own kitchen garden beach vegetables like dune spinach, samphire and sheep sorrel, along with saltbush and home-grown white radish speak of this menu’s sense of place.
Each dish finds a perfect match in Aravina Estate’s range of wines. The house made pappardelle, with broad beans, peas, zuchinni and pecorino is a classic Spring dish. Pair it with the Wildwood Ridge Reserve Chardonnay for that perfect combination of Spring flavours.
The entrée of spiced duck breast, blood orange reduction, rhubarb and red leaves is visually beautiful and the perfect match with the Shiraz Tempranillo which integrates fruity, terracotta-like tannins with juicy red fruit.
Mains of Barramundi, Shark Bay clams, white beetroot, asparagus and horseradish (try it with the Block Four Chenin) and slow cooked Donnybrook Suffolk Lamb, bagna cauda, smoked capsicum and crisp potato demonstrate provenance and an intensity of flavours.
The dry aged scotch fillet, with cipollini onions, cauliflower and miso butter is crowned with king oyster mushrooms, grown in Margaret River exclusively for Aravina Estate. Matched with the Wildwood Ridge Estate Cabernet Sauvignon, this dish satisfies on many levels.
Desserts and cheese to finish vary from the bright, fresh, palate cleansing Sheep’s yoghurt cremeux, blood orange jelly, blood orange sorbet, rhubarb and meringue, to Chef’s signature domed dish, this time in the form a sublime glazed chocolate dome with salted caramel marscapone and blackberry granita. So good with the Single Vineyard Shiraz. The technically elegant vanilla sponge, burnt honey ice cream, almond espuma and bee pollen deftly combines flavours and textures to pleasing affect.
