Burnt Orange, Mosman - Mother's Day Lunch

I don't usually like going to the same place twice. I simply can't afford to because there are far too many nice places to try! But the Burnt Orange in Mosman is different. I know I've blogged about this place already a couple of times, but this was still a lunch well worth mentioning. Another great thing about this place is that I've now taken a few of my friends here with me and they are always pleased with the food and amazed by the beauty of this place!

It's also great to finally find a nice restaurant for Mother's Day that doesn't have a rip-off Set menu for lunch! I did book early though and the place was fully booked when we arrived :)

Flinder's Island lamb pot pie with flakey homemade puff pastry and salad greens - The puff pastry was definitely flaky and superbly tasty. Lamb was so tender and it was cooked along with vegetables in a beautifully rich stock.

Refreshing and tasty Grilled Szechuan chicken salad with orange, mint & coriander and a pomegranate molasses dressing

Crispy skinned Confit of chicken on braised red cabbage & apple with a cider honey glaze

Wonderfully rich and tasty Pumpkin, goat's cheese & walnut tart with Melissa's carrot jam and fresh herb greens - The base was so tasty and crisp and the combination of soft tangy goat's cheese with sweet pumpkin was delicious. I would love to have the recipe for the carrot jam as well!
