After lunch we spent time chatting to Silas about the possibility of offering Master Chef Classes or private dinner parties at HideAway Haven.
Another package coming up. Watch out for further details coming soon.
After our very special lunch I managed to surprise Becki (no easy task) with her birthday present. We went to our local pet shop and bought a special needs budgie and gave him a loving home. Check out out blog for more information.
Our cats CK and Ragz are very anxious to 'play' with our newest addition.
We enjoyed a very special weekend with a couple celebrating their anniversary. What was special? I met Ryan shortly after his birth. Erica lived two doors down from my parents home. We met on facebook a couple of years ago. Erica has been an awesome supporter of HideAway Haven and has brought many 'likers' to our page. Shortly after we connected on facebook, Ryan wrote....well I really like all the awesome gourmet breakfasts you do...but if you can do 'Bacon & Eggs' I would love to come and stay. 'Bacon & Eggs' is kinda plain and so not HideAway Haven gourmet standard, we served bacon and scrambled eggs with chives, roasted tomatoes and potato rosti stuffed with spinach, basil & roasted pine nuts drizzled with balsamic vinegar...it was a huge hit with both of them.
This morning Erica and Ryan agreed to be taste testers of our newest venture 'Breakfast Fondue'. We made a savoury fondue with champagne, sour cream, cheese and dijon mustard and a sweet fondue with peaches, cream cheese, maple syrup and vanilla. Smoked salmon, hard boiled eggs, sausages, tomatoes, sour dough bread wasserved with the savoury fondue. Pikelets, blueberry bagels, waffles and brioche bread was served with the sweet fondue. We also made a mango breakfast parfait to accompany the fondue. We had so much fun putting this together as a special treat. Erica and Ryan enjoyed the fondue on their deck this morning watching the birds and said the slow pace of eating breakfast was really enjoyable.
Make a booking during June - August to celebrate a special occassion and you can enjoy our breakfast fondue for a special occassion at no extra charge. Min 2 night stay and weekends only for your choice of sweet or savoury. Please let us know in advance. September onwards breakfast fondues are available for an additional $20.00 to replace your gourmet breakfast.
Special Noisy Guests
We had a flock of about a dozen black cockatoo's visit us early this morning. What fun to watch them grab the gum nuts and toss them on our tin roof and roll them down the stairway to haven
