The devastation from bushfires across our beautiful country is hard to comprehend. The ongoing smoke haze and media coverage is a constant reminder to those of us in the cities – out of harm’s way. But for those in affected areas, they suffer the heartbreaking loss of lives, property, livestock, native flora and fauna. The impact of these devastating fires will be felt for many years to come, and so we want to do our bit to help. On Saturday, 25 January, Annata is holding a Bushfire Relief dinner with a special menu created by our masterful Head Chef, Jordon Garcia.
The special menu is priced at $89 per head with $20 per head going to the National RSPCA Bushfire Appeal.
Mortadella croquette with olive
Raw Hervey Bay scallop, oyster cream, strawberry, coriander.
Buffalo milk ricotta, grilled nectarine, pistachio, olive herb, served with frittelle
Blue eye, yellow curry, fried potato noodle.
Ranger Valley wagyu rump cap, red pepper, onion, quinoa.
Apple, almond, kaffir lime leaf.
You can also donate directly to the RSPCA here.
In the wine world, many of the country’s wine regions have been severely hit either directly by fire, or through smoke taint. So, for the month of January, we will be supporting a winery that has been with us since day 1 – Vinteloper from the Adelaide Hills, founded by David Bowley. His vineyards and property were completely destroyed by the fires that ripped through Lobethal. He and his team have now started the long process to rebuild.
For every glass of Vinteloper wine ordered by our guests we will donate $2, and for every bottle $10, to the RSPCA. You can also support Vinteloper directly by visiting their website and purchasing some of David’s amazing wines, but be quick as they are selling fast!
We look forward to seeing you at Annata for this very special event and supporting the RSPCA in their efforts to assist Australia’s most vulnerable – our animals.
