Romance your loved one with a Valentine's Day dinner at Tokar Estate
Treat your loved ones to an unforgettable romantic getaway experience this Valentine's day at Tokar Estate. Recently awarded a AGFG Chef's Hat, this premium small winery is the perfect venue to celebrate the most romantic date of the year with your choice of a three-course A La Carte lunch or a once-off six-course Valentine's Day Degustation for dinner.
In the Mediterranean inspired setting of the restaurant overlooking the lush vineyards and mountain ranges, couples can delight in a gastronomic adventure prepared by head Chef Maria Kabal. The Estonian-born, Melbourne-based chef promotes quality ingredients from small, local farmers to present to her sustainably sourced, minimal waste, nose-to-tail peasant fare cooking style. Maria began her career as a chef at Caravan King's Cross in London, where she trained under Australian chefs. During this time, she also cooked alongside the famous chefs from Copenhagen's Noma. Upon making a move to Australia, she landed in the role of sous chef at Añada and spent three years in the kitchen with chef Jesse Gerner, before stepping into the role of Head Chef at Tokar Estate.
A fierce advocate for women in the culinary scene, Maria's first team, was an all-female kitchen at Añada. Your exquisite six-course meal dining experience will begin with two starters – Tokar Estate Sourdough bread and Sydney rock oysters and house-made hot sauce. It will be followed by choice of entrees including Cured Duck Breast with Smoked Ricotta, hazelnuts and bronze fennel, or raw Scallops with Cucumber, Pomelo and Jalapeno. The main spread of the degustation dinner adventure includes three curated courses starting with Rabbit and Black Garlic Ravioli and lamb sweetbread with green garlic followed by Kingfish served with Tomatillo, Beef Fat and White Soy. Enjoy the burst of flavours with the fifth course of Duck leg with Plum and Mustard Greens and Beetroot Terrine. Conclude your elegant evening with our chef's special degustation dessert of Ruby Chocolate with Beetroot, Raspberry and Lychee.
