An­other hat for Ter­race

The Free Press (Corowa) - - FRONT PAGE -

All Saints Es­tate restau­rant ‘Ter­race’ was awarded One Hat at the Aus­tralian Good Food Guide 2019 Awards for the sixth year on Mon­day, Oc­to­ber 8.

Aus­tralian Good Food Guides have been award­ing chef hats to dis­cern­ing chefs around Aus­tralia since 1982, and are the re­sult of care­ful de­lib­er­a­tion.

In­spec­tors do not pro­vide com­men­tary when rat­ing es­tab­lish­ments, rather they sub­mit a straight­for­ward score out of 20 based on the food alone.

This is based on the tra­di­tional French rat­ing sys­tem. Since the guide’s in­cep­tion in 1977, a score of 20 has never been awarded and sel­dom have restau­rants been awarded a 19.

The six at­tributes for hat suc­cess are in­gre­di­ents, taste, pre­sen­ta­tion, tech­nique, value and con­sis­tency.

Ter­race head chef Si­mon Ark­less has rewrit­ten the culi­nary land­scape of the re­gion with the Ter­race, con­sis­tently be­ing awarded a One Hat stan­dard over six years since his ar­rival in 2012 and ac­com­mo­dates cus­tomers from all over Aus­tralia to en­joy his cre­ative and del­i­cate dishes.

The win­ning com­bi­na­tion of ex­cel­lence in food qual­ity, and the intuitive skills of restau­rant man­ager Bec Des­lan­des, en­sures the Ter­race team con­tin­ues de­liver ex­cep­tional ser­vice.

Mr Ark­less’ stel­lar ca­reer started in Lon­don at renowned restau­rants Biben­dum and Oxo Tower Restau­rant, where he was made head chef at the age of 28.

“Work­ing with a team like Si­mon and Bec makes us all strive for ex­cel­lence,” All Saints Es­tate CEO El­iza Brown said.

“I’m very proud of the Ter­race team and what we have achieved over the past six years.”

Join head chef Si­mon Ark­less and the ‘One Hat’ team for ‘Es­tate on a Plate’ at Ter­race Restau­rant as they show­case the sea­sonal pro­duce grown and har­vested from All Saints Es­tate on Sun­day, Novem­ber 4 at 12pm.

Guests will cel­e­brate the Es­tate’s spring bounty with an in­dul­gent four-course lunch with a fo­cus on Es­tate grown pro­duce and pre­mium wines ex­pertly matched by wine­maker and cus­to­dian Nick Brown.

Few peo­ple are aware that the iconic prop­erty of All Saints Es­tate is also a work­ing farm. The beauty of the rich soil and de­fin­i­tive sea­sons in North-east Vic­to­ria al­lows the Es­tate to pro­duce pre­mium wines while breed­ing fresh, free range meat and beau­ti­ful pro­duce.

Mr Ark­less and his team com­mit them­selves to cre­at­ing an in­spired sea­sonal menu with the finest qual­ity, lo­cally sourced and Es­tate grown in­gre­di­ents.

The Ruther­glen food­scape has en­joyed a resur­gence with the crown­ing of Ter­race Restau­rant as one of the hottest food spots the re­gion of­fers. Ter­race Restau­rant has en­joyed the glory of be­ing awarded a ‘Chef Hat’ sta­tus by the Na­tional Good Food Guide since 2014 and was also placed in the Gourmet Trav­eller Top 100 Restau­rants in Aus­tralia.
