Taking inspiration from your environment and creating something you believe in is the touch of a true artist and that is certainly the case for local chef Joe Griffin who will be creating a sumptuous feast at The Orchard Estate near Byron Bay.

Winter in The Orchard is an exciting and special pop up lunch on June 9 from midday that has taken its inspiration for its menu from The Orchard Estate, a working macadamia nut farm, and the surrounding properties.

The concept behind the dining experience is to create a journey that guides the diners through multiple courses,’ said Joe.

Organic ingredients will come from the neighbouring pork farm  Esperanza and local organic beef and chicken will also feature in the dishes.

The guests will start  with a selection of snacks including ‘Tete de Cochon’, chicken liver pate, pickles and crisp breads,’ said Joe excitedly.

The will then progress ‘through The Orchard with our version of a beef tartare, another course involves Pickled lilli pillie’s and Esperanza Pork. Richard from Byron Bay Cacao will then be creating a sensational dessert and petit fours to conclude the dining experience.’

Joe is keen to let people who are vegetarian, vegan or who have other dietary requirements that they are happily and easily catered for.

If you are keen to see what culinary delights your local environment inspires then contact Joe on 0429 629 449, [email protected] or find out more on the website.
