“Degustation to your Door”


Saturday the 5th June 2021


“Winter warmers”


Wine Host - Gartelmann Wines


Cook a 5-course dinner at home like a PRO!

Matt Dillow from “The Deck Cafe Lovedale” and Fernando Antao from “Sabor Dessert Bar” have created a 5-course, home delivered, Degustation to your Door menu that YOU will put together (with a little help from Matt) at home.

During the Covid-19 lock down Matt and his team created weekly Degustation to your Door menus and kept everyone busy looking after his regular clientele and sharing the fun with many more “Degos” that were so well received our guests are asking us to do more in 2021.  

As we are back to being very busy at the café plus lots of offsite functions we struggle to find a free weekend but we NOW have a date and are looking forward to Saturday 5th June !!

Matt has created a menu full of his favourite dishes and will bring out the best flavours with his own wine label “Gartelmann Wines”.  The 2021 Vintage will be ready and we’ll include some of these new wines.

No Degustation would be complete without Dessert and you’ll finish your evening with the ultimate dessert from “Sabor Dessert Bar”.  Such a fabulous treat and great fun to put together.

We do “live” Face Book for each course on The Deck Cafe Lovedale’s Face Book site showing you how to put each course together.  Matt will guide you every step of the way.

So get a group of friends together and organise a virtual Degustation to your Door dinner party.

We will be delivering your degustation packs to “Pick up points” on Friday 4th June and Saturday 5th July to Sydney, Newcastle, Maitland, Singleton, Port Stephens and local areas ready for you to cook up a storm on Saturday evening. See www.deckcafelovedale.com.au for pick up points!
