Morning Delights Never Tasted So Good

And we’re not exactly sure why. Our cleanest air and water allowing us to grow the most delicious ingredients may have something to do with it. It could be the home-grown and new-arrival chefs that have that magic touch. Or maybe because every morning it’s quiet, peaceful and simply, ahhhhhhh. In the end, who cares what it is, simply start enjoying.

Tassie breakfast perfection with Tasmanian smoked salmon, poached organic eggs, stone ground sourdough and hand whisked hollandaise sauce.

Here's a little story...

Dairying in Tasmania began after European free settlement with just a few cows to supply fresh milk. By the 1850’s Tasmania was self-sufficient and exporting both butter and cheese to the mainland. By 1891, there were around 450 dairy farmers, half of them were women.

Here's a little story...

The ‘Apple Isle’ refers to Tasmania being an important apple grower and exporter. The first apple tree was planted in Tasmania and Australia in 1788 when William Bligh anchored in Adventure Bay on Bruny Island and planted a selection of fruit, including three apple seedlings.

Here's a little fact...

The first Australian truffle was uncovered in Tasmania in 1999 after 8 years of work. Prized around the world for their culinary value, black truffles come from a fungus which grows just below the surface on the roots of oak or hazel trees. Australian producers use spaniel truffle dogs instead of pigs (used in France) which they find easier to train.

Here's a little fact...

Here's a little story...

Tasmania is home to Australia’s oldest brewery, the Cascade Brewery in Hobart. In 1824, Peter Degraves, when serving time in jail for failing to pay his debts to England was craving a beer, dreamed up a plan to utilise Tasmania’s pure water and ideal hops growing conditions to make premium beer. When he was released he set his plan in motion and the rest is history!

Here's a little story...

Australia’s oldest pub which was built in 1807 on the River Derwent in Hobart called the Hope and Anchor which was renamed as the Whale Fishery. Stories from the early days talk of a rough and rowdy venue where punches were traded as frequently as beer and rum.
