Tuscan Long Lunch

Conveniently located a short drive away from both Brisbane and the Gold Coast Sirromet is a wonderful spot to spend an afternoon.

Sirromet is an amazing property with a main restaurant, cellar door and Cafe, glamping tents and the ever gorgeous Tuscan Terrace – my focus for this blog!

We arrived to the most gorgeous long table lunch setting with place names, multiple wine and water glasses as well as lavender and Rosemary on the table for decoration.

Sirromet aims to provide the freshest and most delicious food possible by growing their own garden, sourcing local and native foods and even foraging for produce.

We started with a delightful Tuscan Antipasto Plate and Tuscan cheese plate. The choice of prosciutto, Salami, bread, pate and of course cheese was absolutely second to none! I could have snacked on this all day.

We then moved into more bread having Bruschetta topped with heirloom tomato, basil, red onion, bocconocini and extra virgin olive oil. To say this was delicious is definitely an understatement!

On this occasion wine was also included with our meal and we had a choice of Reds, Pinot Gris or sparkling! I can confidently say that the Pinot Gris was a hot favourite with a number of us heading to the cellar door after lunch to purchase a bottle or two to take home.

Moving away from the Bruschetta and Antipasto next out was this beautiful Heirloom Caprese Salad with heirloom tomato, basil, burrata cheese and grilles sourdough. Just what we needed to cleanse the palate and enjoy more wine!

Next up was more wine! Haha, just kidding, there’s still plenty more food to come! We got served House Crumbed Calamari accompanied with chips and tartare sauce. How good is the side of bubbles with this?!

Luckily at this point the executive chef, Mathew Fulford, came over for a meet and greet and to explain each dish to us. We were also lucky enough to meet the Head chef of the Tuscan Terrace, directly responsible for the beautiful food we’d eaten today. Also a Perfect opportunity for us to have a break before the next courses!

Out came the incredibly tasty Asparagus and Prosciutto salad with asparagus, prosciutto, rocket, strawberry, feta and sherry vinaigrette.

Salad was accompanied with a range of pizzas from Margarita to Farmhouse, BBQ Chicken and vegetarian. My personal favourite was the Margarita!

Thankfully that was the end of the food, but what a way to spend 2-3 hours being wined and dined in a beautiful location!

If you’re considering a trip to Sirromet you might like to take up their return bus service, $25 per person from Brisbane.

I just know you’ll love this destination as much as me!
