My tasting plate was amazing. Every component was spot on. Little roasted quail, and the quail came from Harcourt. I did not know there was a quail farm out here, I'll have to check that out. Potato blinis made from Trentham potatoes, (of course), and served with house smoked salmon. Plus a darling little "mushrooms on toast". Seems a bit pedestrian to call it that, but those are their words not mine! I actually strongly dislike mushrooms and my heart sank when I saw them, but I tried them and they were delicious! I was later told they were picked from the Trentham Golf Course that morning. So it turns out I do like fresh, sporty mushrooms. The platter was rounded off with a glass of Curly Flat Chardonay, from nearby Lancefield. It was so delectable! I often times find white wine a bit thin and sort of acidic. I way prefer red wine as a rule. But this wine was like velvet, full bodied velvet wine. Okay that makes no sense but I'm sensing you get my meaning.
It was incredibly pleasant sitting by the fire enjoying fine food and excellent wine. It was pretty much the perfect 'Sunday afternoon in a country pub' experience. It's a relaxed atmosphere at The Cosmopolitan. You can wander in for a meal, a coffee, a beer what ever takes your fancy.
Was It A Great Eat? Well and truly!
