A visit to Grazing takes you to the town of Gundaroo population 300. I fell in love with Grazing the moment I set eyes on it. It is a rustic restaurant in a 1830s stone building located in rural New South Wales 30 minutes from Canberra. It is a country restaurant which serves the freshest produce, most of the vegetables from the chef’s own herb garden.

The restaurant evokes warmth, character and coziness from the wooden floorboards, tables and the fireplaces.

The food is superb. Sophisticated country dining at its best. The catch of the day ($27) was served akin to to a thick bouillabaisse with a subtle creaminess that complemented the freshness of our fish.

The crispy duck confit ($17) was heavenly. The skin is thin and crisp with the meat extremely tender.

The pear tart with cream ($14) was perfection. I’m not a fruit dessert person but there’s always a dish which makes you into a convert and this was it.

Summary : I’m looking forward to my next visit although I’m 700 kilometres away. Grazing is definitely a must visit for anyone who drops by Canberra. There is perfection in simplicity.
