Appellation-- for my foodie friends

In my last post, I mentioned the #1 restaurant that we went to while in Barossa Valley, Appellation. It was a fantastic restaurant with amazing food and staff. We all agreed that our server was the best we had see in a long time, a young lady travel through from South Africa.

Our server began the evening with complimentary champagne for the table!

Here is what was on the menu...

The Head Chef, Ryan Edwards,  prepared some tasting for us to start with. These were not on the menu.

roasted red pepper covering with avocado stuff on the inside
White and red beatroot salad with some yummy cheese

We began with a salad off the menu which turns out was everyone's favorite dish. This is so unique with an explosion of taste!
Salad of fragrant spiced roasted sweet potato, pepitas and toasted almonds and cumin

Then came the mains...

Hutton Vale Lamb with braised vegetable fruits, pearl cous cous and sherry jus
Rare fillet of Coorong Angus beef and broccoli with tarragon emulsion

Fillet of South Australian snapper with pilaf, zucchini and chervil butter sauce
We ended the meal with a beautiful selection of dessert tastings compliments of the chef!
