Gus turns 50 !

 Last Saturday, we all piled on a bus and headed for Coonawarra to celebrate Gus' 50th Birthday.  His mum made this huge chocolate sponge cake.
~
 He had his 40th Birthday at Upstairs and Hollick so thats what he wanted to do for his 50th also.  We had 64 guests.
~
 Me and my beautiful girls!
~
Family!
~
 For lunch, there was a choice of crisp skinned local pork belly; cassoulet of upstairs pork, fennel & cider sausage, pancetta, tomato and cannellini beans...
~
 or whole roasted scotch fillet of local beef; charred Kalangadoo onion; roasted field mushroom; green beans; horseradish butter and cabernet jus.  Salad of hillbilly farm lettuce, red onion, cucumber, cherry tomatoes and local olives.
~
 Dessert was a fantastic vanilla bean panna cotta; raspberry sorbet; poached local rhubarb; rose geranium syrup; freeze dried raspberries.  Everyone raved about this!
~
Soft centred dark chocolate pudding, house-made butterscotch icecream; hazelnut and almond praline; vanilla cream.
~
It was a very long lunch and just what Gus wanted.
