A beautiful crisp Winter morning and Jacks Point Clubhouse in all it’s glory for one of the most delicious breakfasts to knock off your socks.
Now it’s cold here in the mornings (I’ve recorded -7 out at my place) and so socks and big pants are needed but I would gladly throw caution to the wind and chuck off my socks if I could have this kind of good grub every day.
Jack’s Point, if you haven’t been out there, is a wealth of golfing, trails for biking and walks, kids playground and the restaurant. You are right up next to The Remarkables and so when it snows it’s like you’re in their living room. So close, so beautiful. Dazzling even.
We went for the ‘Feed Me‘ menu but honestly got into an argument about all the other stuff we wanted too. Shared Style consists of delicious honey toasted muesli with coconut milk and tamarillo (which I’ve seen in the supermarket but have never known what to put them with. Muesli works. Oh does it work!) And if you bring the kids down for the shared style they get to eat for free! (One child per adult).
Next up; warmed fresh sourdough with cultured butter and a hint of salt and pepper. I know my last meal on this earth will have some kind of warmed bread and this might take centre stage.
Wilted silverbeet, scrambled eggs with chorizo, hasselback potatoes (could potatoes have been invented for anything else?) and a large piece of simple salmon with pickle and dill creme fraiche. Knock me down with anything you want and I’ll still get up to the table for this spread.
I paired the menu with English breakfast tea (of course) and a mulled pear juice with ginger and spice. Cozy in a glass.
I could have gladly slunk away from the table fulfilled but then a little stone plate appeared with two heavenly hazelnut financiers balanced delicately. In other words, little sponge cakes covered in salted caramel and sprinkled with shaved hazelnut.
We licked. the. plate. clean.
Jack’s Point have done it again. And Again. They keep coming up with inventive ways of using current and seasonal ingredients perfect for the season (Winter: cozy) and always something for everyone. If I were you, and I know you listen to me by now, get yourself there. Wrap up warm, new boots and scarf and hunker down for some seriously delicious breakfast. And lunch. Oh and a bit of dinner too.
Have you been out to Jack’s Point? I’d love to know your favourite part of it!
