New dining experience arrives in the Hunter Valley at Oaks Cypress Lakes Resort
Celebrated as one of Australia’s ultimate epicurean hubs, the Hunter Valley has welcomed a brand-new dining destination to its impressive foodie offer with the opening of Pipette and The Connoisseur Bar & Lounge at Oaks Cypress Lakes Resort.
Joining the sprawling 25-acre resort’s sister restaurant and bar Bodega and open from Thursday through to Saturday, Pipette will take diners on a gourmet journey of modern Australian flavours in a relaxed, yet stylish Hunter Valley setting.
Overlooking the lagoon pool, lake, manicured golf greens and iconic Hunter Valley vineyards, Pipette’s evening menu comprises a carefully curated selection of entrées, mains and desserts that proudly showcase the region’s best local produce.
From seared king fish accompanied with avocado mouse, sesame seeds, garden fresh nasturtium and radish; to duck leg served with fresh wild berries, duck-fat potatoes, heirloom carrots and red-wine jus; and peanut-butter ice-cream with tempered chocolate, maple bacon and caramelized banana, Pipette raises the bar with its innovative combination of ingredients and flavours.
Other signature dishes include caramelized scallops with crisp wonton, Thai-style nam jim and herb salad; whole fried plate snapper with Asian-style slaw and honey soy sesame dressing; and blueberry cheesecake with raspberry sorbet, toasted pistachio praline and chocolate straws.
Two- and three-course options are available at Pipette, starting from $59 per person.
