LATEST FROM THE VILLAGE CAFE
Fathers' Day is coming up next weekend and many of us are not able to have our traditional get togethers.
So, why not celebrate with some delicious treats from the VCF?
We have a special Fathers Day Hamper available full of delicious snacks. It consists of a bottle of red or white wine (choose from Quealy pinot grigio, Foxey’s chardonnay, Paringa pinot noir or Eagles Rest (Eden Valley) shiraz), chicken liver pate, lavosh flatbread, roasted nuts, olives, and some mini chocolate brownie squares. All the food goodies are prepared and made in our kitchen. All this comes in a box all wrapped up in cellophane and will look very festive for $75.
If sweet treats are more in your line we offer a similar hamper containing a selection of cakes and slices found in our famous cake cabinet along with a bottle of the excellent Foxey’s bubbly for just $65.
We can also do a special seafood meal - a number of people have already taken advantage of the wonderful crayfish salad for birthdays and anniversaries – see the photo below ! ( we can also do a delicious prawn cocktail as either an entree or main meal)
This week we also have a new takeaway main meal menu :
a wonderful Sri Lankan black pork curry , which comes with house made dhal and basmati rice ;
Slow braised beef cheeks in a rich and tasty sauce and served with creamy mashed potato ;
our very special Confit duck with spiced red cabbage and sweet potato mash.
For those amongst us who prefer not to eat meat there is a delicious Pumpkin and 3 cheese lasagne.
It is also possible to order our own wood fired pizzas - we can deliver them hot and ready to eat or pre-prepared and ready to go into your own oven at your convenience - and how good on the weekend to tuck into a delicious pizza and a glass or two of some of David's vast selection of red wine!
Whole cakes and tarts are available too - Passionfruit Sponge, Carrot Cake, Chocolate Cakes, Lemon Meringue Tart, Orange Almond Cake, - anything is possible.
We will be doing 3 (free) deliveries throughout Fathers Day, so meals and wines can arrive at the time you want.
Something to look forward to during these difficult times !
Please stay warm, safe and well !
All the best
Angela & David Marshall

VCF WEEKLY WINE SPECIALS
“Wine is sunlight, held together by water”
One of the great wine quotes, now over 450 years old. Made by the pioneering scientist and astronomer, Galileo, he obviously drank pretty well all that time ago. Perhaps our warm and softly smooth Montepulciano from Abruzzo (fresh supplies, of the 2019, at $22 are now in) was what he was contemplating at the time ! Certainly with the Flinders sun still somewhat shy, and no escaping to Noosa or Spain this year, wine is an excellent option !
We have some rather good wine specials this week – particularly note the 2016 Glen Eldon shiraz. The 2014 Glen Eldon, sold under our own label, was one of our most popular wines last year, being big, rich, smooth and plain delicious, but our price of $42 compared to the vineyard price of $300 may have helped ! It sold out very quickly, and the 2016 at $45 is really worth looking at.
Melbourne deliveries : with all the restrictions we are enduring under Stage 4, a lot of local weekenders are unable to get down to Flinders as they normally would. We have had a number of requests for deliveries of Fathers Day hampers, take-home food and wine up to the big smoke, and the first of these will be this Friday, the 4th, but we will need your order in by midday this Thursday. Delivery is free.
To order, email on or ring David on 0416 178 547.
