The Shared Table

We had 15 members go along to The Shared Table in Buninyong on Saturday 25th March, for our 1st Fine Dining evening.  There was much chatter, with everyone enjoying the company, and eager to try the delights on offer.

There were 3 “Snacks” starting with a Beetroot base, topped with ricotta, local walnuts and blackberries. This was followed by Charred wagyu rump sticks, soy tare, and crispy shallots. The last was a Zucchini and prawn flower, stuffed with tomato and strawberry, and a yuzu kosho dressing.  The dishes were very well presented, with plenty of flavour.

Mains followed, with a dish of Quince glazed, spiced, pressed Pork shoulder, Kohlrabi and Cashew puree, pickled Mushroom, Cavolo Nero, topped with honeyed, roasted Carrots.  Another lovely dish, with the Pork just melting in your mouth.

Dessert was Black sesame semifreddo, with end of summer berries, and a wafer of sesame brittle.

Our main disappointment was the size of the dishes.  They were all much smaller than on our previous visits, and while you don’t expect a “pub meal” sized serving when dining at an à la carte restaurant, they were simply, too small.  The service was also on the ordinary side.  Whether this is a result of Covid staff shortages, who knows?

Let’s hope our next venue performs better.
