If you are planning a road trip around Tasmania, make sure you find time to book in a cooking workshop held at the picturesque Agrarian Kitchen, an 1887 schoolhouse turned home of your hosts Rodney & Severine.
The class is run in their beautiful kitchen which has enormous glass panels lending a view over their productive kitchen garden, where the fresh produce used in the dishes originates from.
If short of time, never fear, Rodney has opened The Agrarian Eatery at New Norfolk, housed in the famed now-defunct Willow Court psychiatric hospital dating back to the 1900’s about 40 mins from Hobart. The airy restaurant looks to the kitchen and is accessed through an array of herbs and greens waiting to be plucked by the chefs. The generous space with windows lining all sides features a pressed tin ceiling made that extra bit fancy with Christopher Boots constellation lights and original mustard & olive lino floors, making for a relaxed yet elevated setting to sample some good Tasmanian fare. Make sure you try some of the pickles & preserves, much of which is made on site.
