The Great Australian Cookbook

Alla Wolf-Tasker and Rodney Dunn  |  Season 1  |  Episode 11  |  Lifestyle Channel

We meet creator of fine dining institution the Lake House in Daylesford, Victoria, Alla Wolf-Tasker. Alla is widely regarded as being responsible for bringing fine dining to regional Australia with her award-winning, industry respected establishment Lakehouse. Alla prepares her famous Lakehouse-inspired Rivers and Lakes Share Platter recipe. Playing homage to local ingredients, Alla sources her inspiration and produce from the surrounding region for the elegant dish. Alla reveals her European inspiration for the Lakehouse, and its story from humble beginnings to world-renowned fame. Lakehouse is a family business and Alla sits down in stunning surroundings with her husband, daughter and son-in-law to take a moment to reflect on all they have achieved at this iconic establishment. The platter is a true restaurant dish and, with the help of Alla's numerous tips and thoughtful instruction, viewers can impress their guests or just be impressed themselves when they whip up this special dish. From Daylesford down to the Lachlan in Tasmania, an equally stunning backdrop introduces the chef's cook Rodney Dunn from the Agrarian Kitchen. A stunning working farm and cooking school, this is where many of Australia's top chefs go to relax. Using produce from the farm, Rodney bakes a rhubarb and berry crumble with goats milk and vanilla custard for his young family. A 'tree-change' and a life dream realised saw Rodney and his wife Severine build a dream from very humble beginnings with the Agrarian Kitchen. Following Rodney's philosophy of taking food from the source right through to the plate, this beautiful recipe is a hit with the whole family. With his young son as sous chef, Rodney uses the freshest of ingredients for the crumble, finishing it off with beautiful homemade custard. A recipe not to be missed.
