In preparing for this Sunday’s Winter Roast in Housey Housey, a lot of thought went into creating a menu with locally and regionally sourced produce. As a business our mission is to use only the finest and freshest quality regional produce and this event menu is a wonderful example of just that.
If you look closely, Ballarat and the surrounding region is abundant to small to mediumfarms producing high quality products and we were excited to use these suppliers for the upcoming roast.
The saddle of heritage rare breed Dorset south down lamb (quite a mouthful) has been delivered by Beyond Free Range Farm Food, a company dedicated to sharing generations of sustainable food culture. Supplying local communities around Daylesford and Castlemaine area, the farm aims to go beyond free rang by ensuring an organic diet of chemical-free pasture and grain and developing a model of sustainable food production.
Mount Prospect Produce is located 10 minutes west Ballarat towards Daylesford and prides itself on producing high quality produce, from sheep to potatoes to truffles and chaff. Nutrition is a focus here and using biological farming methods their food is grown in balance with nature to ensure this is achieved, all natural products with no chemicals and of course a dedication to their craft results in a high quality local product. Their fresh russet burbank spuds will be on show to compliment the lamb as a side dish.
Salt Kitchen Charcuterie is a local charcuterie located on the outskirts of Ballarat towards the Hamilton Highway, and is quickly moving up the ranks. With premium meat options from cured maple and streaky bacon to pork terrine and smokey ham hocks, Mick Nunn is refining his craft and enjoying a quick road to success from Ballarat to Melbourne and beyond.
We are licking our lips for Sunday's Winter roast, especially with such high quality local produce. Follow the links below for more details on the Housey Housey Facebook page or for tickets on the Eventbrite page.
