A 100 metre meal
Tuesday, 17 July 2012
We enjoyed a 100 metre meal at Margan Resturant in the Hunter Valley recently.
All ingredients were sourced fresh and from within 100 metres of our table.
We started with a delicious corn soup served in a sweet teeny little cup.
The main was slow roasted lamb with creamy potato mash, heirloom vegetables - all from the kitchen garden. Margan raise their own Black Suffolk lambs in the paddock next to the garden.
We also enjoyed a glass of Margan Barbera - with the grapes grown less than 100m from our table.
After lunch we wandered through the kitchen garden.
I'm in love with this strawberry patch! I'm thinking I have to have one as big as this.
The concept of the 100 metre meal has inspired me.
A few years back when our urban garden was still productive I would have regularly whipped up a 100m meal - tomato and basil omelet, veggie frittata, or BBQ mushrooms and grilled veggies.
I'm looking forward to the day when 100 metre meals are possible again.
Do you eat 100 metre meals very often? How long could you survive on food that is grown within 100 metres? This guy managed an entire year!
