éRemo Italian’s ‘greedy’ menu satisfies taste for the Hunter
Spicers Guesthouse in the Hunter Valley welcomed Michael Elfwing in January this year as executive chef of éRemo restaurant, the centrepiece of the tranquil resort, surrounded by vineyards and a verdant estate. The retreat has been a Hunter Valley icon since the mid-80s, and today Spicer’s signature emphasis on locally sourced produce and naturally sustainable practices is showcased in its modern Italian cuisine.
éRemo is a destination in itself or the highlight of a country experience with the beauty and vitality of the environment being expressed, devoid of pretention, on the plate in front of you.
Elfwing came to Spicers from the Shangri-La Sydney in The Rocks, where he was executive chef, but his years in high-end hotel kitchens has been matched to time in the iconic Margaret River region at the prestigious Cape Lodge, and now in the serene vinous Hunter Valley at Spicers Guesthouse.
