Lemon Myrtle Marshmallow Recipe

By The Kitchen at Bec Hardy Head Chef, Connor Bishop

The Hardy family has generations of winemaking experience and Bec Hardy Wines continues that legacy.

Their welcoming, family-friendly cellar door offers a relaxed space surrounded by gum trees, vines and fire pits besides the lawn. Their food offering, The Kitchen at Bec Hardy, is set in a converted winemaking shed where a large oak vat still adorns the corner. The juxtaposition of rustic barn styling with high quality furnishings and crockery make for an elevated yet relaxed space in which to immerse yourself in a quality McLaren Vale wine and food experience.

The appointment of Head Chef Connor Bishop has seen the produce from their own Tipsy Hill garden crafted into two feed me menus, The Short Story and The Long Story. Both menus seek to tell the story of season and place through local, seasonal and sustainable produce alongside paired wines from the Bec Hardy and Pertaringa ranges.
