Degustation Events


It's time to start something new and fresh at the Paddock this year and without a doubt, there's no better way to get together with family and friends and enjoy a five-course Degustation event.


Here at The Paddock we always strive to bring not only the best quality produce to our diners but also a great dining experience.


With each Degustation event, we as chefs, get to work on creating a theme for the event and sourcing the best quality produce we can find. Our five-course Degustation is a great way for us to showcase this produce and give our diners a new experience to what we serve each week.


Typically a Degustation evening will start with an Appetiser followed by the Entrée, Palate Cleanser, Main and Dessert to finish. Our recent Degustation was also served with an Australian craft beer pairing for each course.


Below is our Beef + Beer Degustation Menu. It was a great way to start our first event, which gave our diners a great experience of Cape Grim Beef produce complimented with independent Australian craft beers. It was a great success and feedback was more than overwhelming.

We will be organising more of these Degustation nights over the coming months. So keep a watchful eye on our Webpage and Facebook page for the next upcoming event.


To finish things off, we've got a great recipe for you to try at home.


SASLA VERDE (herb sauce)


1 cup flat-leaf parsley leaves

1 cup basil leaves

1 garlic clove, chopped

2 teaspoons capers, drained

1/2 cup extra-virgin olive oil

1 lemon, juiced

Pinch of sea salt


This is a general list of ingredients so don't be afraid to mix up your herbs to flare it up a bit.


1. Add the herbs, garlic, capers and salt into a blender

2. Blend and while it's still moving add your oil and lemon juice. 

3. Taste and season a bit more if need be. 


A great, fresh summer sauce for all types of meat. 




Until next time
