What is Menu for Hope if you wondered?
It brings bloggers the world over who use their combined power to raise funds for the UN World Food Programme.
After stops in Paris and on the West Coast, I continue my Menu for Hope 5 exploration.
After seeing the embarrassment of riches listed as Menu for Hope 5 prizes by Ed Charles on Tomato, my own offering might pale in comparison.
These Epicurean delights by themselves might justify a trip to Australia.
Let me note first A tasting menu with matched wines for 2 people worth $460 at the Royal Mail Hotel, Dunkeld (Prize Code AP04).
The hotel (pictured above) is described as "a unique rural destination set among native gardens and fruit orchards with stunning views of the Southern Grampians Ranges. Accommodation, an award winning restaurant and wine cellar, bistro, public bar, meeting and conference facilities and the historic Mt Sturgeon Estate and homestead are all available for guests to explore and enjoy".
Want Room and Board, the 1 nights accommodation and a 3 course meal for 2 at the Provenance Restaurant in Beechworth (Prize Code AP11) is just for you.
A quick look at their site seems to indicate that they have a fondness for artichokes (see below).
Makes me wish I could fly there and gives you an idea of how global an effort Menu for Hope is.
