Tuna tartare with crushed green pea salad. Butter beans with salted ricotta and black garlic. These are but two of the mouthwatering dishes on the menu at the Winemakers' Lunch at Cumulus Up this Sunday afternoon. The fine folks at the Flinders Lane eatery know a thing or two about pairing vino with good grub. At just $65 a head, it appears they know a bit about good value, too.
A trio of local winemakers will welcome diners through the door at noon for an informal tasting ahead of a sit down meal. In addition to those already mentioned, one standout dish will be the O'Connor chateaubriand, a pan-roasted cut of eye-fillet steak flavoured with garlic, juniper, thyme and butter, best enjoyed with Shashi Singh's Avani Shiraz from Red Hill on the Mornington Peninsula. Also: it's Father's Day on Sunday. Just sayin'.
