Taste of the Wild, Western Aus­tralia

Wine & Dine - - TRAVELLER -

While many flock to Western Aus­tralia to take in the sight of wild­flow­ers in bloom, bou­tique ho­tel COMO The Trea­sury in Perth is giv­ing guests a tasty spin on wild­flow­ers and indigenous pro­duce with its two-night Wild­flower Ex­pe­ri­ence pack­age.

In ad­di­tion to two nights’ ac­com­mo­da­tion in a her­itage room, guests are brought on a guided indigenous tour of King’s Park to learn about the dif­fer­ent species of wild­flow­ers and how the indigenous peo­ple used to for­age for food. This is fol­lowed by an­other high­light, a five-course tast­ing menu with wine pair­ing at its restau­rant Wild­flower, where ex­ec­u­tive chef Jed Ger­rard will “showcase the best of each new sea­son and give our guests an au­then­tic West Aus­tralian din­ing ex­pe­ri­ence”. The restau­rant is based on a farmer and for­ager con­cept where indigenous and sea­sonal pro­duce un­der­line the fare here. As such, ex­pect eclec­tic dishes like raw Broome pearl meat with soured Ger­ald­ton wax cream, sea pars­ley oil and fen­nel pollen; South­west mar­ron with river fern, pre­served pump­kin and fin­ger lime; and grilled Arkady lamb with Jerusalem ar­ti­choke, salt­bush and pep­per­mint tree cream. Other treats in the pack­age in­clude a wel­come gift and pic­nic lunch ham­per. Priced at A$1,950 based on two guests shar­ing, it is avail­able un­til 30 Novem­ber this year. co­mo­ho­tels.com
