BALLARAT FOODIE SUNDAYS

SS June 26 Insta

People of Ballarat did you know that there’s a great place you can go to any time of the year seven days a week to enjoy a quiet moment or catch up with friends to enjoy great coffee and the most delicious food?

I’m talking about Saltbush Kitchen at M.A.D.E. Brigid Corcoran the creative dynamo behind Saltbush Kitchen has cultivated a truly unique offering of native bush flavoured food that is so good it’s attracting a lot of attention in Ballarat. Saltbush Kitchen is conveniently set in between the lush parkland of the Eureka gardens and the Museum of Australian Democracy at Eureka (aka M.A.D.E). It’s a tranquil spot with lots of natural light and space for the kids to with the playground and park all in viewing distance.

A growing number of Ballarat locals are discovering the good things going on at this unique cafe. Brigid is passionate about supporting quality local produce. She always has been. That’s why Saltbush Sundays is now a thing. Every Sunday you can come along and enjoy all the usual tasty menu offerings for breakfast, lunch, the freshly made cakes on offer or a local platter with a glass of wine. You can also pick up some local fresh produce farm gate style, including Basilio Sourdough, Yendon gourmet tomatoes, Ballarat mushrooms, Buninyong bush greens and Spring Creek Organics. If you place your order before 8pm on the previous Friday you can also pick up Country Style Smallgoods bacon, ham, sausages and salamis.

This Sunday 26 June Luke from Amherst Winery and Sebastian from Country Style Smallgoods will be offering tastings of wine and bbq cooked sausages and bacon between 11am and 2pm.
