Restaurants - Coldstream, VIC
Here at Bella Vedere we do daily fresh bread that is baked onsite and is used in our cooking and sold to customers everyday.
Gary Cooper and Tim Saywer of Bella Vedere are convinced that the best-tasting food is organically grown and harvested in ways that are ecologically sound, by people who are taking care of the land for future generations. The quest for such ingredients has largely determined the restaurants cuisine.
Bella Vedere wants diners to partake in the immediacy and excitement of vegetables just out of the garden, fruit right off the branch, and bread straight out of the oven. In doing so, Bella Vedere is also supporting such small artisan farmers as Witchy Proof pheasant & pigeon, Yeringburg Lamb (over the back fence) local apple yard ducks, local road island rooster (for the traditional Coq au Vin). Venison from the local forests Like Bella Vedere, these farmers are concerned about environmental harmony and how it gives optimal flavor.
Bella Vedere's devoted relationships with local producers, has naturally formed an evolving menu. Every day the kitchen develops a menu that changes weekly supporting as much as possible local farmers, which in turn assures the supply of pure & fresh ingredients.
Over the last 10 years, Gary has developed over 1600 menus. The constant followers of diners have been excited by the choice and surprise of ingredients and dishes that have changed on a daily or weekly basis.
Honest country hospitality, in a beautiful setting serving real food. "A real restaurant for real people."
