Knee Deep Winery

December 31, 2017

To us, this place always reminds us of great food. Food so great that it is always been hard to get into, unless you are super organized.   We have not been back for at least four years and since then, they have changed chefs. Recently, I stumbled upon some commentary about how wonderful the food is at Knee Deep, so whilst we are in the area during Christmas, I thought we best wander in for a bite to eat.

Crunchy broad bean and vegetable salad

December 29, 2017

I’ve said it before, I just love broad beans. When I saw it in season again, I could not resist making another version of this salad. This time with crunchy cos lettuce and cucumber with an oregano infused dressing. I found this load of broad beans at Bunbury Fresh, I imagine you can get them at any good farmer’s market.

The Plantation Grill – November 2017

December 5, 2017

We’d stayed at the Double Six Hotel before but during our stay, we could not fit in a dinner at this place, so we’ve wowed to ensure we do when we return to Bali next.

After a week of fabulous Indonesian and Asian cuisine, we were really craving for a good steak and a decent bottle of red. We weren’t familiar with any good steak houses nor have we come across anywhere that has a decent wine list but we do know for sure that this place does. Plus, we do know of friends who have enjoyed a meal and nice bottle of red here too. Continue Reading…
