Steve Earl @ Otway Ranges, Great Ocean Road

Farmer-chef extraordinaire Steve Earl raises Welsh Black cattle for some of the best beef you'll find southwest of Melbourne - a visit to Earl's 45-hectare farm, very near the coast, might be a highlight of a food enthusiast's visit to Australia's Victoria state.


Earl & his partner Mikhiala Slade operate a restaurant called La Bimba, which serves not only fantastic meat but seafood that's fresh off the boat. If it’s on the menu, try Earl’s simple-looking but spectacular-tasting octopus tapas, blanched in seawater & paired with exquisitely soft potatoes and paprika, or the flathead fish with chermoula sauce. Archer the faithful dog approves.

  3. Love the rolling green fields! Eeek!!! Brings to mind an Austrian guy here, home-based dining...and he has so so many dogs...and they say he touches and plays with them all the time while preparing and cooking and cutting and serving the guests. Ummm...can't say I am comfortable with that.
