Brown Brothers, Milawa

One of the largest wineries in the Northeast Region is the Brown Brothers winery in Milawa. I have dined with them several times in the past and it has always been a very pleasant experience.

By the time we got here, I had already ate 3 lavish meals in a row so unfortunately I was ready to have something plain rather than more rich food. However, I soldiered on. Ordered the trout which was outstanding – very fine flesh that almost melted in the mouth accompanied with a very tasty beetroot salad. My friends ordered more than I did and they said theirs were lovely too.

Lots of wine once again – every course you order at Brown Brothers comes with a complimentary glass of wine and if you are a member of their Epicurean Club, you get a free glass of sparkling on arrival on top of that. They make sure you are well watered, these people.



Maple Walnut Macarons

Are people sick of my macarons? Maybe. But I am most certainly not! Decided that I’d make some maple walnut macarons to celebrate autumn here in Australia.


I was particularly pleased with the results of these macarons mainly because of the coloring – I sprayed it with some orange food spray that resulted in an ombre effect. Loved it!

Recipe for filling as follows:

50g butter
30ml maple syrup
20g chopped walnuts

  1. Cream butter and maple syrup together until well combined and light in colour. Add chopped walnuts and pipe into macaron shells.
