King Valley Ploughman’s Platter
A definite crowd please! Try our version; make it fancy or simple.
A ploughmans platter is an English meal served cold accompanied by quality chutneys & relishes.
Basics always include: crusty bread, hard cheese, pickled onions & Chutney- along with a cold Beer! Along with the essentials, choose accompaniments from the list of ingredients below, according to taste & availability.
We note our complimentary range of condiments that marry especially well with the ingredients listed. Quick homemade pickled onions lift this to another level – see recipe.
The real beauty of a Ploughman’s Platter is that every forkful is a different taste fusion, almost like entrée, main & dessert all served together. En-joy!
