Have you ever travelled a long distance just to visit a particular restaurant? Since I’ve started to dabble in the world of food, the thought has started to play on my mind. Perhaps a whirlwind visit to Attica in Melbourne to experience Ben Shewry’s creations, or even a tour of Tasmania sampling the finest produce in all of Australia. And what about the rest of the world? Well that’s the dream anyway.
Lochiel House – in Kurrajong Heights at the bottom of the Blue Mountains – has long been on my list. In food blogger circles, I’ve heard about this restaurant, which specialises in pig and its nose-to-tail cooking that is present in almost all of its dishes.
The drive past Windsor and Richmond is uninspiring at best; I’m guessing the more interesting parts are leading up to Kurrajong and beyond. Feel free to leave a comment if I’m being blinded by my ignorance. But the food makes the trip to Lochiel House worthwhile.
