South Coast Food Alliance
The South Coast Food Alliance held their first event, ‘Mollycoddle at the beach‘ to a capacity filled function centre at the Mollymook Surf Club on Friday evening October 30.
The four founding restaurants: Rick Stein at Bannisters and Tallwood in Mollymook, St. Isidore on the edge of Milton, and Cupitt’s Winery, on the back road between Ulladulla and Milton combined to each present a dish with accompanying wine. It was ‘fine dining’ at its best.
Event coordinator Mel Louth explained that “it was a spring inspired menu and that all four restaurants were incorporating the best locally sourced produce.”
