Moruya Health Cafe asked the simple question today on their Facebook page "Whats for lunch? How about a fig, pancetta, blue cheese, roasted hazelnut and rocket salad? "
Absolutely scrumptious :) If you come across a dish where you believe the cafe/restaurant is pushing up the bar send in a photo and description of the dish. The summer tourists have all but gone and it is now down to us - the locals - to support our cafes and restaurants through the quieter months. Why not make a pact - go out and enjoy a cafe meal once a week. Explore your own coastline. Call into shops you haven't visited, go to the markets, buy local produce and crafts. Maybe then we can help to sustain the apprentices in the kitchens, the wait staff front of house, the chefs, the shop assistants, the makers and the growers. If you are on Facebook go and like your local cafe and restaurant pages and follow them to see what specials they are bringing to the table. If you have a cafe or restaurant and you update it with passion, menus and dishes and want to list it then send your link to firstname.lastname@example.org and we will check it out.
