Matt's Bar at Yering Station

I went to several wineries last weekend with a group of friends and we stopped by Matt's Bar at Yering Station for a light lunch. Actually, we have been snacking throughout the whole trip.

Complimentary chips
I wonder how they cut the chips into the criss-cross pattern

Yarra Valley Persian Feta and potato croquettes with
Cunliffe & Waters tomato and capsicum relish
The croquettes were great! Crispy on the outside and soft and creamy on the inside

game terrine wrapped in proscuitto with winter salad, red wine drizzle
My favourite! The red wine sauce gave it an extra kick!

spiced chickpeas in pappadum cases, coriander and yogurt dressing
I didn't really enjoy this dish. The pappadam cases tasted a bit stale.

smoked chicken roulade filled with currant and mint polenta

Yering Station produce platter
Chefs daily selections of marinated vegetables, cured meats, pesto, olive oil, balsamic vinegar
with Phillippa’s bread
I loved their sun-dried tomatoes! So sweet and juicy!

Hi, I remember these slicers on one of those shows where they say "but wait, there's more" and it was not to expensive. I dare say those specialty chinese stores in Richmond will have them or even essential ingredient maybe. You might even get it off the net, google it, it's worth a try... Vida

Is it one of those shows that says "But wait, if you call within the next 15 min, you'll get... for free!"
