Saturday Night Dinner!

After a fantastically busy day at Handmade Market and then the Saturday Crafting Session, we’re going to break for dinner and leave the hotel for a bit of fresh, cold, Canberra winter air and a hearty meal.

A short walk from the Crowne Plaza, is the venue for this year’s dinner, the Tongue and Groove bar and restaurant. This year, your dinner is included in the cost of the Saturday Crafting Session. Drinks, however, are extra, and they can be purchased as needed from the bar at the Tongue and Groove. This has worked well in previous years. If you want to drink water, you’ll have a really cheap night. If you want to drive Veuve Clicquot, you won’t, but that’s up to you :-).

The menu for our dinner is a tapas type menu and includes all of the following dishes:

  • Marinated Olives
  • Baked Ricotta – sundried tomato tapenade, balsamic olives, garlic croutons
  • Sauteed Chorizo in Red Wine – wood fired bread
  • Crispy Polenta Squares – beetroot relish, buffalo mozzarella and fresh basil
  • Sliders (mini-beef and wood-fired lamb burgers)
  • Chilli Salt & Pepper Squid – aioli
  • Tempura Prawns – ginger, soy, mirin & sesame dipping sauce
  • Twice Cooked Pork Belly – sticky ginger & caramel sauce

And you even get dessert!  The trademarked Pizookie – a pizza-sized warm cookie, served with vanilla bean ice cream and covered in white chocolate and peanut butter drizzles.

(Who’s up for a run in Canberra?)

The great thing about a menu like this is that there is something for everybody, and with no orders needed, we can do a fairly quick turnaround at dinner and head back to the Crowne Plaza for more sewing!

Having said that, I know there are people who have dietary restrictions, and it is imperative that you let me know as soon as you book to come to Sew It Together. I cannot make arrangements for you on the day. I can however make plenty of arrangements in advance, so that you are catered for. Please let me know – I am not a mind reader!

And just a reminder – you don’t need to pay separately for your dinner this year. It’s all included in the Saturday Crafting Session ticket!

    I figured out more interesting things on this
    weight-loss issue. A single issue is a good
    nutrition is extremely vital any time dieting.

    A tremendous reduction in fast foods, sugary foodstuff, fried foods,
    sugary foods, pork, and white flour products may be necessary.
    Possessing wastes unwanted organisms, and toxins may prevent desired goals for shedding fat.
    While particular drugs quickly solve the problem, the bad side
    effects are certainly not worth it, and they never offer you more than a short-lived solution.
    It is a known idea that 95% of celebrity diets fail. Thank you for sharing your notions on this site.

    “I like spring, but it is too young. I like summer season, but it is as well proud. So I like greatest of all autumn, simply because its leaves are just a little yellow, its tone mellower, its colours richer, and it is tinged a little with sorrow and a premonition of death. Its golden richness speaks not of the innocence of spring, nor of the energy of summer season, but from the mellowness and kindly wisdom of approaching age. It knows the limitations of life and is content. From a know-how of those limitations and its richness of experience emerges a symphony of colours, richer than all, its green speaking of life and strength, its orange speaking of golden content material and its purple of resignation and death”
