The food focus for a while now has been proximity, with restaurants minimising their miles from farm to plate. Hot spots like “The Farm Byron Bay” growing a good majority of their ingredients on site, are reacquainting patrons with where what we eat actually comes from.

In nearby Carool two ex- Sydney guys are making their mark on the hinterland, promoting a similar food philosophy with “Potager” the kitchen garden.

On entry you walk through the veggie patch where you’re encouraged to sample some of the produce that is soon to feature on your plate. The setting is serene and the food suprising, with many dishes incorporating seafood – unexpected in this country setting.

My Sydney Weekender “Eating Out” experience was delightful, from the drive there which has you breathe a sigh of relaxed relief to the time your taste buds are tantalised by some clever and heartwarming dishes.

Take a trip to “Potager” but remember to check their opening hours and be sure to book or you may take the drive only to find you’ll end up hungry. They do everything themselves and can barely keep up with the demand. Great work guys, I’ll be backwith a booking!
