Winter Run 22 July 2018
All Members and potential members are invited to participate in our Winter Social Run to the Windmill Gardens Function Centre at Bonnie Brook (Plumpton).
After departing our meeting place at BP Rockbank we will head north towards Gisborne, and then southwest to our morning tea venue where we will enjoy the company of the Ballan CFA contingent. Following morning tea we head north again to Trentham, then east and south east to our lunch venue, the beautiful Windmill Gardens Function Centre.
Situated only 25 klms west of Melbourne, Windmill Gardens is a unique property set on 4.5 hectares of landscaped gardens, with a two storey windmill, a water wheel with it’s own lake and waterways, and numerous other smaller buildings. The main function room is constructed of recycled Oregon timber and bricks from very old demolished Melbourne buildings of a surprising nature, and one of the owners will give attendees the history of the construction of the building and the centre.
Windmill Gardens is a family owned and operated business that has a reputation for food and service that is better than excellent, and part owner David has assured me that we will not be disappointed with his offerings.
Our lunch will be alternate servings. Entrée will be goats cheese and roast capsicum tartlet with basil beurre blanc, and slow cooked pork belly with celeriac puree and salted caramel apple sauce. Mains, again alternate servings, will be aged sirloin beef (cooked medium) on mash and seasonal vegetables and Fish of the day with capsicum, Spanish onion and herb crust, with olive oil mash. Dessert will be sticky date pudding with butterscotch sauce and vanilla icecream, and Crème brulee with fresh berries and almond biscotti.
