End of summer dinner
In last week’s “This week at Mawson” we featured an article on Mawson’s heritage listed building, Biscoe. As described in the article, three carpenters have been working on Biscoe during summer and as this heritage listed building needs a modern day use we thought it only appropriate to hold our end of summer dinner in Biscoe. It took a bit of setting up to get all the tables, cutlery and food to Biscoe but the result was worthwhile. Ray prepared an exciting and varied menu and commented that it was harder work than the meal he prepared for Christmas.
Smoked salmon on a feta mousse and cucumber.
Lamb Kofta with spiced riata.
Duo of duck
Pan fried breast served medium rare and confit braised leg served with a light brown lentil and macerated orange salad
Roasted beef fillet resting on a polenta cake with mediterranean vegetables and a light vanilla infused jus-a-lie
Almond and chocolate gateaux with berry compote and whipped chantilly cream.
Everyone was dressed as formal as possible but we were joined by a Knight Templar (Adam), a Scot (Graham) and Taekwondo "Master" (Luis), although some thought the later looked more like the Karate Kid or even Elvis.
The evening went into the wee hours but the helpers the next morning made the clean up and rearrangement of our existing dining room easy.
