Tasmania has two main Casinos; the famous Wrest Point (which this year is celebrating it's 40th Anniversary) and the less well-known Country Club located in Launceston. While AJ and were staying in Launceston we decided to head to the Terrace Restaurant; the fine dining cousin to Wrest Point's revolving restaurant.
The menu at the Terrace is similar; modern french inspired cuisine with an impressive wine list that has won many awards. AJ and I were interested in exploring the dessert selection here so decided over two nights to treat our palates.
On the first we tried the Dessert selection; a selection of the entire menu but in minature. It was a great way to sample the menu; creme brulee with blood orange, lemon tart, panacotta and a chocolate and peanut brownie. We also tasted a selection of soft, hard and blue cheeses which came served with brioche, crackers, apples, quince and raisins.
On our next visit we sampled some of our favourites in greater proportions which allowed a better assessment of the expertly prepared dishes from the Terrace kitchen.
Without a doubt, I'd have to say the Brulee was the best prepared of the desserts - perfectly creamy, a crisp toffee and accompanied by a delicious sorbet.
The sampling of the sweet treats on the Terrace's menu only sparked my curiosity for the rest of the selection.
