Just one of the selection of to share
dishes on offer at Turanga creek Vineyard.
"Deep in the Woods"
Eye Fillet with freeze dried plum; beets,
Truffle oil, micro greens, and portebella mushrooms
Rustic and woody in taste and look.

Both of these dishes seem to sum up my current trend in cuisine creation.
I am attempting to follow a mix of traditional cuisine ideas with simplifying 
the dish components.
 Less about the fluff, more about the perfection of each item on the plate , 
The aus jus being a perfect clean blood red , the garnishes when they are there
edible and add to the total appeal. 
The restriction of elements on the plate to a color code,
not just for the pure beauty but because they actually marry well together.
25 years of cooking and still learning. :-)
