The Brae restaurant by chef Dan Hunter is a very special place. Located on it’s own beautiful farm in Birregurra, about two hours drive from Melbourne, it’s a restaurant serving super modern gastronomy in a perfect white, 1860s farmhouse.
Food is bold, brave and delicious, part of the reason why Brae was just voted Melbourne’s Best Restaurant of the Year in the Age Good Food Guide.
The food at Brae is grown at Brae - around 90% of it at least comes from somewhere on the restaurant’s 30-acre site. A site complete with a citrus orchard, olive grove and around 200 fruit trees.
To mark the announcement of Brae’s achievement in the Good Food guide and to personally indulge in some juicy food porn, we’ve decided to take a closer look at the restaurant and some of the dishes they serve.
