Breakfast at Pigeonhole Cafe

Breakfast at Pigeonhole Cafe

You may have been “instaspamed” when we had breakfast at the Pigeonhole Cafe, I was joined by Ellie of course & you can see her pictures here. The Pigeonhole Cafe have had their Thermomix for a few good weeks so it was a perfect excuse to do some taste testing & photography all in one. All the produce for the cafe is sourced from their own Weston Farm so it really is paddock to plate.  It’s so awesome seeing all their preserves & pickles on the back wall of the cafe.

coffee

All good food styling & photography sessions must begin with coffee to keep our energy levels up!

 

The Chef Alex Mullan served us his favourite dishes, starting with the Pork Rillettes made from a pig from their own farm with an apple & rose hip paste, served with house made pickles & toasts. Even the greens & flowers are from the farm. Alex explained that he tries to make every thing he can from scratch & I can certainly relate to that! This dish was so amazing!! Not only did it look so good that I took about 20 shots of it (while drooling) but it was so balanced & full of flavour.

Next fresh lightly roasted figs with mascarpone cheese & caramelised honey on sourdough – I’m still in a food coma!!

Chai tea & more coffee required

 

Then the “Divorced Eggs” A combo  of hot & cold with baked eggs – once I heard there was chipotle I was sold 🙂 So good!!

Now I think it might be time for 2 “ladies” to eat 3 breakfasts!! Let’s get some action shots – well at the very least slow motion posed eating shots!

We had a wonderful morning & want to thank the amazing team at Pigeon Hole Cafe’ for being so accomodating, allowing us to have a long breakfast with our cameras & tripods in the front of the cafe’.
