We are honoured to have received the following commendation from the Executive Chef at the famous Chateau Yering Hotel in the Yarra Valley
"At Chateau Yering we make everything from the ground up including jams, chutneys and relishes so usually when someone contacts me about selling me these products I normally don't go out of my way to try them.
But when Lachlan contacted me about his range of produce his enthusiasm and passion was infectious and he told me about the story behind these recipes that had been in his family for generations. So I had to have a look at his wares.
My Pastry Chef Nardia Kitch and I sampled Lachlan's beautiful produce. We were excited with the quality and how not run of the mill a lot of the flavours are like the Lime Marmalade and the Walnuts in Cherry Jelly.
The Panforte is full of beautiful warm spices and the Walnuts in Cherry Jelly is currently on our cheese trolley and we constantly get great feedback and is certainly my favourite condiment to have with cheese. It has a clean cherry flavour with great texture from the walnuts and is quite unique."
