David Thompson dinner @ Longrain


Recommended Posts

I was wondering if anyone could share their experience of the dinner David Thompson did at Longrain Melbourne.

I didn't get to go, but my partner works at the restaurant and he brought some food home for me to try.

There was a lovely gentle and quite sweet dish of braised Murry Cod with eggplants and pine mushrooms and a hot hot curry of beef with chillies, pepper and galangal, but that's all i got to try.

Anyone go to the dinner?

How sad; a house full of condiments and no food.

Yeah it's pretty early isn't it?

don't know where they came from but they worked beautifully in the dish because they held their shape and texture.

We saw a lot of pine mushrooms at the Richmond street market about two weeks ago. One stand had several cartons of them, but they were of very poor quality - big, but very damaged specimens. I can't remember the price, but they were not that expensive.

But only one stallholder (different from the one above) has had them in the last two weeks, and I think he would've been charging at least $50/kg for them.
