A sell out event at last year’s Fireside Festival, Oakridge’s Asado Dinner should be on every foodie’s culinary bucket list. This dinner showcases the traditional Argentinian Asado style of cooking over coals, but with a distinctly Yarra Valley flavour, as we celebrate our region’s amazing producers.
The evening will be culinary celebration of winter in the Yarra Valley, with the menu highlighting Oakridge Executive Chef Aaron Brodie’s hyper-local approach to cooking, showcasing the season’s bounty from the kitchen garden and his favourite local producers.
Enjoy an indulgent four-course menu created by Aaron, including whole butterflied Yeringberg lamb, dry-aged Springbrook beef and housemade morcilla cooked over a traditional Asado firepit. Paired (of course) to a curated selection of Oakridge’s award-winning reds – including wines sourced from the Oakridge cellar specially for the evening.
