Georgie Bass Cafe & Cookery
Take a road trip down the Peninsula for a cooking class and a long lunch.
A contemporary cafe with an on-site cooking school, Georgie Bass is ideal for a weekend road trip down the Peninsula. Sibling and neighbour to The Flinders Hotel, it's an inviting indoor-outdoor space, complete with dog-friendly seating and even a bike repair station.
Alongside locally brewed coffee from Commonfolk, the kitchen's plating up a modern Australian offering centred around local produce and seasonal ingredients from Georgie Bass' own farm, Mornington Park. Tuck into the likes of a mushroom medley spiked with goat's cheese and chilli, or the slow-cooked duck leg ragout served on soft cheesy polenta with walnuts, grapes and sherry vinegar. There's a line of fruity smoothies to match, as well as a tidy range of local booze that'll see you through the afternoon.
If you like what you taste and fancy recreating some of the culinary magic yourself, check out the hefty program of cooking classes led by award-winning chef Michael Cole. The upcoming lineup features a pasta workshop, a guide to winter entertaining and a class on vegan and gluten-free cooking, to name a few.
