Celebrating International Women’s Day: the ultimate Peninsula produce challenge!

100MFwomensday01On Thursday, March 8, I celebrated women working in food, wine and agriculture with a special International Women’s Day lunch created solely from Peninsula produce. The lunch was a chance to support and encourage women working in fields still dominated by men.

The event was hosted by Rye beef farmer Sally Matt at Hillock Downs and also featured Pt Leo Estate sous chef Jemm Franks.

We served four courses created entirely from ingredients grown, bred or raised on the Peninsula. I am very passionate about Mornington Peninsula produce that is sustainable and ethical. Even the bread was made using wheat grown in Tuerong!

Angus/Frisian beef bred and raised at Hillock Downs was also on the menu. The dishes were matched with wine from Crittenden Estate.
