Dishes – Smoked Mackerel Pate + Snowy Mountain Apple.
The pate was something our Mother used to make for us when we were young so quite a sentimental dish. Our mother used to The Snowy Mountain Apple for our Sunday lunch desert sometimes and I think it was definitely made up by her, both she and Jan weren’t big desert people but Jan loved this dish.
