The feast at Veg Table begins with what Brett Garvie, chef and owner, finds, forages, and grows-always seasonal, of the finest quality, and prepared with love.
Brett's bounty is brought to the table in three imaginative, beautifully plated courses: tapas, a plate or sharing platter of brightly flavoured tastes perhaps some vegetable fritters with piquant sauce or homemade dolmades; the main course could be porcini mushroom ravioli with truffles and gorgonzola sauce or perhaps homemade pasta with pesto studded with lightly roasted nuts; dessert often features fruits of the season. In autumn, perhaps a caramelised pear tort set off with dark chocolate and luscious coffee ice cream or his own version of classic peach melba with richly flavoured vanilla ice cream.
Bring your own drinks and Brett provides the vintage glasses. Coffee and herbal teas like rhododendron, rose geranium, or perhaps mint are offered after dinner.
Brett graciously greets guests, and you are free to wander as he puts the final touches on the first course. The pace of service is leisurely as Brett and his assistant prepare, plate, and serve.
The magical atmosphere of this fairy lit cottage is a delightfully quirky with charming mismatched vintage tableware. The dining area is comfortably casual but with a sense of occasion-music, candles, and the cozy glow of a wood fire. In the gaps between courses, step out to the porch and star gaze or check out what's cooking on the gorgeous Defy Jewel wood-burning stove.
Celebrating the good moments in life with a memorable meal-with friends or at a romantic table for two.
