When you venture into Victoria by Farmer's Daughters, the multi-storey venue in Fed Square from Alejandro Saravia, you're set to be met with a culinary showcase of the state. A menu that brings farm-fresh produce from regions as varied as the Murray region and the stretch of land along the Great Ocean Road, all the way out to Mallacoota and the Pyrenees. Alongside the usual menu, the team is adding a plentiful end-of-weekend meal to the mix.

On Sundays, between 11am–6.30pm, diners will be invited into the warm embrace of The Mighty Sunday Roast — a changing three-course set menu spotlighting a Melburnian twist on the pub classic. Starting off a little left of centre, you'll break bread, perhaps with salumi, buffalo ricotta and a crudo with kohlrabi and kelp. Or, maybe sweet mussels from Portarlington, smoked and served with chickpeas and fired peppers. Then, it's the crown jewel: the roast. It may be lamb shoulder or possibly beef shin, but it'll certainly be hearty and served with gravy, crunchy potatoes roasted in duck fat and housemade Yorkshire pudding.

Rounding out the generous communal meal — which goes for $85 per person — is a sugar-sweet finisher. Perhaps the classic floating island: cloud-like poached meringue atop chocolate custard. Or, maybe, a creme caramel decked out with marinated plums and the fried crunch of crostoli. However your grand Sunday feast concludes, you'll be fuelled — and in the perfect location — for city explorations. Put the word out to your group, set a date and book your table.

The Mighty Sunday Roast is available at Victoria by Farmer's Daughters every Sunday between 11am–6.30pm. For more information and to book your seat, head to the website.
