Enjoy the beauty of this ski area without the chill
Head to Falls Creek this summer to enjoy a wealth of local produce and wines surrounded by some pretty amazing scenery at the 2015 Regional Longest Lunch.
Enjoy all the best of local produce at the Historic Regional Long Lunch, located at Wallace's Hut in Falls Creek.
If long-lunching is your thing (and really, who doesn't love a long, leisurely lunch?), this dining experience is catered by Falls Creek restauranteur Barry Iddles (of Winterhaven and Elk at Falls); the event incorporates a three course set menu, drinks and canapés. All taking inspiration from the quality local gourmet producers and growers in the region.
And to make the event even more special, proceeds will be donated to 6 worthy causes across the Resort, Falls Creek Primary School, the CFA and SES, Falls Creek Childcare, Falls Creek Ski Patrol and historical society.
It's a great way to enjoy this popular ski destination during the warmer months as it's located at the grassy grounds of Wallace's Hut. Sip champagne and dine in style alongside one of the oldest structures in the Alpine National Park in one of the most unique settings for a long lunch.
The event is set to take place on Friday March 13, 2015 from midday until 4pm and tickets are $110pp inclusive of canapes, a 3 course lunch and accompanying wines.
The 3 courses will include:
Entree - Double baked Milawa cheese soufflé (David Brown select cheddar) w tarragon sauce (gf)
Main course - Baked chicken breast w a fresh local green herb sauce (gf)
Dessert - Chocolate pave made of chocolate from Bright chocolate factory
