Valentine’s Day Dinner at Oakdene
Wednesday 14th February
Marty @ Oakdene—3 Courses for $80 pp
Mr Grubb @ Oakdene—3 Courses for $49 pp
Treat your special someone to a magical, romantic evening with a tantalising & delicious 3 course dinner for Valentines Day.
If you’re not quite that romantic or just hate the commercialisation of Valentines Day, Oakdene can still offer you a fantastic night out with exquisite food & wine.
He has done it again! Chef Marty, from Marty at Oakdene has once again shared with us two mouth watering recipes and this time it is an Oakdene staff favourite, Pork Belly!
In case you are still trying to decide on what you should make for Christmas lunch, have a look at these two delicious options, crispy pork belly and papaya salad with sticky palm sugar syrup or slow cooked pork belly with sichuan pear, pickled daikon and king brown mushrooms. Yummmmmm!!!
We think that pork is perfectly matched with a dry, fruit driven wine like the Oakdene Ly Ly Pinot Gris or the Oakdene Bellarine Peninsula Pinot Grigio, both available at our cellar door.
Our very own revered Chef Marty, from Marty at Oakdene has shared with us two mouth watering recipes to make your Christmas Turkey a little bit fancy.
Complete with all the trimmings, slow cooked escalope with bacon and chestnuts or Malaysian style turkey breast with aromatic spices and saffron potatoes. Sounds delicious right?
Turkey is the perfect match for Oakdene Peta’s Pinot Noir and our Bellarine Pinot Noir. This lighter style of red wine pairs beautifully with it's subtle oak spices and would also be well enjoyed with roast chicken.
