Eat Local Scenic Rim has invited us to become an accredited “Locavore” being a part of the “Eat local every week” accommodation section. Which means that Steve and Jaide (your Nightfall hosts) will be exploring and tasting new local produce to add to the Nightfall experience. How exciting!
Our first Sunday afternoon exploration took us to Mount Tamborine where we met with Hala and Cameron from Yasabel Cottage Kitchen. We tasted a selection of Hala’s cookies and cakes and Cameron’s sourdough bread. Delicious! Definitely adding these goodies to the food experience at Nightfall.
We then headed off to Greenlane Coffee Plantation where we walked through the lush healthy coffee tree’s that were abundant with fruit and flowers, emitting a beautiful aroma of jasmine. Divine! Then it was back to the coffee house where the baristas brewed up some tastings for us to try. The coffee is delicious, smooth and a treat to the palate with a rich caramel aroma. Another to add to the Nightfall food experience.
On the way home, we stopped in at Witches Falls Winery. A very pleasant afternoon with passionate staff sharing knowledge of the winemaking process. Our favourite was the wild ferment- Monastrell. Along with a selection of Jambreen local made cheeses. Amazing! Especially the black ash triple cream Brie. The ash is made from the stalks of the grapes grown on site at Mount Tamborine.
Steve and I are looking forward to sharing these delicious local treats with our guests. Already at Nightfall we dish up when available Tommerup’s dairy farm milk-fed veal, Christmas Creek honey, Top of the town Butcher in Boonah breakfast sausage and best of all our own homegrown goodies- jams, chutneys, dukkah, and fresh harvest bush foods. We are excited to share all of these beautiful new additions with you and know you will love them as much as we do!
PS. As we find time to explore and taste we hope to add more local goodness to your food experience. Cheers!
