Here's exciting news for those in search of exclusive dining experiences – Restaurant Amara at Spicers Sangoma Retreat in the Blue Mountains is now taking a small number of outside bookings. So now you don't have to be an in-house guest to experience the highly creative degustation menus by head chef Will Houia, but you'll wish you were!
|Amara - Eggplant taco shell, smoked mushroom and pea flowers|
Amara is the Zulu word for grace and the restaurant's philosophy is to provide a graceful dining experience, drawing on an ecosystem of local producers and sustainable on-site practices reflecting the natural bushland surrounds.
|Amara - King Edward potato, marigold, sage and basil|
|Amara - Squid confit stuffed with chicken and tarragon mousse, fennel, chicken broth|
The daily seven course dinner degustation menu and five course lunches on Friday to Sunday are all based on the freshest organic and seasonal produce available within 100km of Sangoma, including the Hawkesbury region. Amara's ‘Harvest Menu’ shared lunch concept, offered on Monday to Thursday, focuses on one succulent protein and four of the freshest organic vegetables, mostly sourced from local friends at Harvest Farms, followed by dessert.
|Amara - Milk skins, hazelnut praline, smoked ice cream, raspberries, dulche|
Chef Will Houia prefers traditional cooking techniques with charcoal and fire and the use of controlled dehydration to prepare fruit and veggies, as well as indigenous ingredients to add subtle layers of flavour. Why not stay for a week and have Will cook for you every day?
