  • My fave way to eat This bowl in particular is
    3 days ago by brownpapernutrition My fave way to eat This bowl in particular is rich in plant based (non-haem) IRON, a key mineral for energy, immune system function, transporting oxygen to our muscles and so that we can function optimally. Iron deficiency is actually incredibly common - in pregnant women, women in their reproductive years, children and individuals following a vegetarian and vegan diet, however we can reduce our risk of iron deficiency by ensuring we eat a variety of iron rich foods and teaming them with Vitamin C rich foods to improve the absorption of iron. C and Iron work like a little

OUR TABLE : A SPECIAL EVENT WITH JACOBS CREEK

As 2017 began I had the absolute pleasure of experiencing the most incredible long table dinner in, gosh, ever. It was the beginning of Jacob’s Creek #ourtable events and the opener hosted by Novak Djokovic, was full of surprises, beautiful food and of course heavenly wine. (You can read more about that here.)

Fast forward a few weeks to a knock on the door and the delivery of a case of Jacobs Creek Wines with another invitation – “Jacq, we’d love for you to create your own shared table event with whomever you please. Create a menu that brings you all together over food and we’ll match the wines…”

Whoa…kidding me? This is my idea of heaven.

Because I’m a foodie, that is evident, and one of my MOST FAVOURITE THINGS to do is share food with others (it’s the whole philosophy of Brown Paper!)…BUT to have the opportunity to have Jacob’s Creek chief wine maker, Ben Bryant, sit with my menu and carefully match the flavours of each dish with the best of their wines?! Wow, just wow – BEYOND stoked is the only way to describe it.

A quick injection here on nutrition though, as I’m guessing, reading this on a nutrition blog you may be wondering – wine, nutrients, what? If you’re new to reading Brown Paper, or back for a visit, my approach to nutrition and health is about balance. And balance to me isn’t being strict on yourself/myself all the time. Rather, it’s an 80/20 appraoch. Eat really well, drink plenty of water and exercise as you would living a healthy life for as much as you can, but don’t let a ‘clean life’ govern your existence, make sure you have room to play. To sit down and enjoy a lunch with friends and have a few glasses of wine, should you choose, eat dessert and relax in all the great things life has to offer us. If we are too strict and regimented in the way we eat, drink and move, then really we are placing stress on our bodies (mental, physical and emotional) and the result is an unhealthy approach to living. It’s not everyday we sit down to a long lunch – when we do, it’s time simply, to enjoy it.

So I started planning. Dishes, location, style, tone, friends, wine, a beautifully crafted table and the food…where does one even start?

OUR TABLE… the first of the experiential events to be held in our new shop in Bondi Beach. This feels so right. A long table with lunch with a glimmer of Bondi’s afternoon sun shining in on our glasses as we chink together and cheers.

OUR MENU…created with each of the special people in my life in mind. A flavour or dish I know each of them will love. Italian in theme, and simple. Simple because I want to celebrate flavours and stories. And that’s what we do.

OUR WINES…Each matched to the dishes on the menu. And so here tis…

To start:

Mixed salumi, figs, olives and vine ripened tomato

Jacobs Creek Reserve Sparkling

Shared Entrees:

Tomato goat cheese zucchetti

Zucchini flower risotto

Jacobs Creek Signature Riesling

Shared mains:

Baked barramundi with sourdough olives and vine ripened tomatoes

Jacobs Creek Barossa Signture Chardonnay

Balsamic Glazed lamb, crispy capers and pumpkin mash

Jacobs Creek Barossa Signature Pinot Noir

  Dessert plate:

Hazelnut truffles

Peanut butter fudge

Raw brownies

Raw chocolate

Jacobs Creek Le Petit Rose followed by Jacobs Creek Double Barrel Shiraz

OUR STORIES…of who makes us who we are. Not surprisingly it’s the people right next to us in the room, our family and our stories of travel. With travel comes the chance to experience flavours and of course a drop of wine too, and relive those moments all over again as we share the memories with a magical meal and glass of wine before us.
