Yesterday was a significant birthday for Peter and our wonderful daughter Sarah and her partner Matthew took us to Testuyas for lunch. This restaurant is undoubtably one of the best in Australia and is booked out for months ahead so we felt really special to be going.
It didn't disappoint and we had the 13 course degustation menu which was surprise after surprise with delicate morsels of such perfection you just wanted to preserve them.
I was not the only one taking photos of every new surprise and the service and ambiance brilliantly enhanced the wonderful feast.

One of the two main courses was Grass fed Angus beef with Asian mushrooms - if it had been acceptable to pick the plate up and lick it I would have.
This was described as a transitional course between main course and desserts (3) and was Cannelini Beans with Mascapone and Caramel
Summer pudding with white chocolate mousse
As a special treat Sarah even allowed me to take a photo of her with Peter.
Thank you Sarah for a wonderful day.
