The Age Good Food Guide
The consistency and style of range restaurant's food, decor, and staff has resulted in another rating of 14.5/20 by The Age Good Food Guide 2012. The following is an extract from the full article which can be viewed clicking on the image or read an extract from the range website.
"The details distinguish Range. They're in the stylish decor: glam black and chrome tables shimmering under moody, soft lighting bold-red statement glass pieces and fresh flowers. Equally meticulous is the cooking that puts an energetic, modern spin on classical techniques: crisp-skinned snapper paired savvily with pipis, tarragon and kohlrabi perhaps. Harrietville trout stars on a sublime taster featuring caviar-topped rillettes, gravlax and punchy tartare. Lively Thai basil cuts through the richness of a pork belly and just-set scallop entree, while, for main, sweet pumpkin, crisp sage and raosted chestnuts provide texture for addictive pillows of seared gnocchi. Floor staff are polished, discreet and unfailingly cheerful..."
Congratulations to the team!
Range restaurant is well known for its contemporary use of premium seasonal ingredients. Concentrating on regional suppliers and the best produce available - the menu includes slow cooked Ovens Valley pork belly, Milawa duck, King Valley porterhouse, Hopkins River scotch fillet, Wild Mushrooms, and locally harvested vegetables.
Nestled between the high country's snowfields and the Murray River, the stunning location of range boasts a dramatic landscape of mountains, valleys, crisp air and clean rivers. This inspirational region also boasts four distinct seasons, ideal for chefs who prefer to "cook at the source" and develop a new and exciting menu at the change of each season.
Our fresh summer menu features the full rich flavours of local produce sourced from the surrounding fertile farmland. A selection of superb international beers and premium spirits, or glasses of crisp local wine is a great start to your dining experience at range.
We are striving to support farming in the area using fresh meats, cheese, eggs, and produce. This menu in particular features many farms from our own backyard. We are constantly foraging for fresh wild products to utilize on our menu, as well as tending to our own vegetables, herbs, and fruits.
Not only will you be eating the freshest possible cuisine but you will leave us knowing you helped support the local economy and the environment. Our new menu sees a further reduction in our "food miles".
