Last weekend all I could think of was being beachside. It was a sweltering down 40 degrees when the plane touched down on the Saturday afternoon and I wanted to be anywhere but the airport and instead feeling the cool breezes of the ocean streaming across my face.
Even though temperatures aren't quite in the 40 degree range it's still hot here in Sydney and today I'm giving away the perfect prize for some lovely summer's sunny weather! It is a lunch for two at the stunning Nielsen Park Beach House Cafe! Nestled in the exclusive area of Vaucluse it is a lovely beachfront location. The menu offers freshly shucked Sydney rock oysters, the famous Shark Beach burger (a local fillet of fish and crunchy chips with home made tartare sauce) or crispy sourdough-crumbed cutlets served with zesty preserved lemon and caper aioli or delicate smoked salmon bruschetta with fennel, watercress horseradish crème and sweet cherry tomatoes. They use produce like Kangaroo Island free range eggs and Sonoma bread with their home made soups. And did I mention the view? It's pure beach baby!
