Father's Day Food Finds

1 June 2016

Treat dad to something special Father's Day weekend, June 18-19. Here are our favorites for you, while you spend time with Dad.

The Chop House Father’s Day All-Day Menu:

​Served at both branches of The Chop House (TST and CWB) on June 18-19, the Father’s Day All-Day Menu (for a minimum of two guests) has a robust and satisfying character that provides communal family comfort with shared platters between loved ones featuring dishes that please dad. More often than not, that means meat (and lots of it), and The Chop House duly obliges.

To begin, we’ll serve The Chop House Cold Cuts Meat Platter, an shared plate of farmhouse charm (portioned by pairs according to your party size) with premium prosciutto, beef salami, pork liver terrine, creamy burrata, piquillo peppers, artichokes and the unmissable bread pairing of lovely garlic herbed ciabatta. To follow is the individual soup course, a hearty and spice-laden bowl of Cajun Potato Soup served with juicy chorizo that entices the taste buds for more to come.

And there is more to come, friends! The shared Main Course Platter is succulence and flavour defined with roasted Australian beef tenderloin, a fork-tender twice-cooked lamb shank, the beautiful slow-roasted pork ribs and plump duroc pork sausages, served on a bed of potato gratin with garden vegetables on the side. Cake seems a fitting finale for a celebration of dads, so let there be cake! For your shared dessert, we present a Mini Rum & Hazelnut Chocolate Cake, a moist and balanced sweet treat served with extra chocolate chips for the naughtier ones at the table. With freshly brewed tea or coffee to conclude, the Father’s Day All-Day Menu is priced at $228 (+10%) per diner.
