Matthew Parris, (Foodie) The Times UK columnist writes:

“Spectacularly sited on a headland with the pacific ocean all around, this hotel and restaurant is proof of Australia’s changing food culture and of a new swagger to the NSW south coast. Overseen by Rick Stein, Bannisters restaurant Mollymook is a memorable place to eat.

…Australia is about the best place to eat seafood. I began with oysters Charentaise, a mix of charcuterie and local rock oysters from the nearby Clyde River. None of that just-a-squeeze-of-lemon stuff here – this was bullish cooking in the confident Australian style, a bit of Europe, a bit of Asia and all of its own.

To that end, the Bannisters (NSW South Coast) menu offered steamed abalone with ginger and spring onions; lobster Thermidor; and flounder a la meuniere. A magnificent spicy, sticky Singapore chilli crab laden with garlic and coriander was brought to the table with a fine grilled fillet of snapper. All spectacular.”

NSW South Coast Food Trail

Matthew Parris, The Times UK columnist writes: ‘What a difference!‘ When last in Australia 25 years ago the food was meat pies and chips. Now its amazing.’ Before heading home we wanted to try Cuppit’s Winery. Facing rich pastures towards a forested skyline you can dine amid the vineyards in an old stone built bungalow or outside in the sun. The atmosphere is green, cool and tranquil. The 2011 Alphonse Sauvignon from the Shoalhaven Coast had a lemony bite to it, just right for a local menu of Black Angus beef with seafood. Try it. You’ll be surprised.”


Menu Log writes: “Chef Russell Chinn has been with Cupitt’s Winery since April 2010. Hailing from Yorkshire, England, Russell is classically trained in French cooking. His style is elegantly rustic using fresh, local and seasonal produce that results in full flavours with French/English influence”. Menu log

Australia’s Oyster Coast

Travellers’ table: article; “Where to eat & drink on NSW South Coast” Richard Cornish writes “With its golden sand beaches, lapped by sapphire blue ocean, the South Coast is becoming a dining destination dotted with sleepy seaside towns and fishing ports.

It is fast becoming the summer playground for Australia’s southern capitals: Sydney, Canberra and Melbourne people come for the fishing, beaches, boating and now, the food.

Best oysters in Australia: Home to the Sydney rock oyster the growers have dubbed this part of the world, Australia’s Oyster Coast. Their website lists many of the growers in the area and sends you down dirt tracks to the rustic sheds on the water where you meet the growers and buy incredibly fresh and good value oysters. Buy a hessian sack of oysters, a shucker if you don’t own one, and sit by the beach or river”. website: Australia’s Oyster Coast

The South Coast oysters are available at local ‘fine dining’ restaurants such as, Rick Stein, Tallwood, Cupitt’s and the Ulladulla Oyster Bar.
