Taste of the Murray is an event made by Swan Hill Food and Wine Festival. It's held in one of Swan Hill iconic restaurant by the might murray river called Spoons Riverside. All of the locals that I met, love them, recommended them even for their breakfast as well.

Canapes; Pickled yabby tail, Mediterranean frittata and Spinach & ricotta ravioli matched with Azahara Chardonnay Pinot Noir NV. My dinner partner love the sour pickled yabby tail so much that she complemented the chef when he come over. The frittata and ravioli were pretty good too.

Entree; Mildura murray cod ceviche, coconut, avocado, finger lime & heirloom tomatoes matched with Deakin Estate Sauvignon Blanc. From all of the dish I like this one the least, I think I like the cod cooked rather than ceviche. I do love the avocado and tomatoes though.

Main; River red gum smoked lamb rump with kipflers, red currant glaze, fried salt bush matche with Deakin Estate Merlot or Deakin Estate Cabernet Sauvignon. It comes in a super generous size, we could not finish it. It could be a lil bit tender but I love the red currant so much.

Dessert; tasting plate of mini apple by night, caramelised mallee peach, lemon zest & yoghurt panna cotta and raspberry gelati matched with Azahara Moscato. Love the caramelised peach so much and also the super soft panna cotta.  The whole thing is just a party.
