Okay, here’s a bit of shameless self-promotion. Great Gourmet Weekends in Australia has just been released by Explore Australia and its jammed packed with delicious options around the country. I was lucky enough to “research” and write the Western Australian content. Each state has in-depth coverage and is available in stores across the country and there’s giveaways too. Available to purchase online at Great Gourmet Weekends in Australia

Here’s a little tease for your tastebuds,

Meet the Osbornes of Darlington Estate Winery

“The owners of the Darlington Estate Winery, Andy and Michelle Osborne may not be “The Osbournes,” but the wine flows with such abandon that Ozzy would certainly approve. Not that anyone minds, especially in the case of their 2008 Sparkling Shiraz and 2008 Sparkling Pinot/Chardonnay, which are the medal winners of the Perth Hills and Swan Valley Wine Awards 2009. Winemaker Menno Bakkers works his magic on the 40 acre estate to produce labels that improve year after year.”

Knee Deep Wines

“With chef Bradley Horny applying molecular gastronomy techniques without a science laboratory at his talented fingertips, every single item on the compact menu at Knee Deep Wines is tempting. Try variations of Donnybrook pear with goats curd, or the sous vide of Plantagenet pork belly or the butter roasted tenderloin of Harvey beef with beef cheek, crispy semolina, braised vegetables and sauce soubise. The petite wine range includes three wines named after the owners’ daughters, and it doesn’t get any more devoted than that.”
