Combining beautiful scenery, friendly and informed service, spectacular food and a formidable wine list, it is a great way to sample the variety and quality of Tasmania's produce.PROFILED BY DEGROOTS MEDIA
A stunning waterfront location and a building that makes a beautiful modern architectural statement, The Stackings at Peppermint Bay now has a chef and kitchen team that does both justice. Under the guidance of Chef David Moyal, The Stackings is now one of the top food destination establishments in the state. First off at a recent lunch was a brilliantly conceived, executed and presented salad – a scattering of baby vegetables, herbs and edible flowers from the kitchen garden presented on a translucent green oil and tomato jelly and set to a melt-in-the-mouth temperature. It was a picture to look at and a simple summery joy to eat.
Presenting almost as stunning a picture was a perfectly cooked pink darn of ocean trout sitting on the blackness of squid ink risotto, topped with a dab of citrusy mascarpone with a lean-to of trout skin crackling on the side. If, as they say, you eat with your eyes, these two dishes made for a feast. A duck breast bedded on a wondrously intense and smooth parsnip puree was almost as good, while a tasting through the array of desserts was a deliciously fitting finale. The wine list is fine with a good and well-priced selection of 28 wines by the glass. You can cruise in luxury to the restaurant from Hobart and there’s a separate bar menu for more casual, alfresco occasions.
