Meet the Chef

Wayne’s love affair with food began in Cape Town, South Africa. Travelling across continents, and undertaking a raft of functions both in and out of the kitchen whilst honing his craft, he has always lived by the mantra ‘lasting buildings are made from good foundations’ you have to be good from the bottom up, no exceptions. Wayne’s overarching belief is simple: “Good food complements good service, and good service complements good food""

    Couldn’t have been a better recommendation from a friend. Knowledgeable and friendly service in a fantastic intimate setting. Loved everything about it. Non-descriptive menu items making it a pleasant and unexpected surprise each course. Can’t wait to return!

    our group commented at the time that no matter how much of a celebrity you are, no matter how much money you have - you could not match such a perfect dining experience anywhere.

    It was a quiet peaceful setting with decor to match perfectly. We had the set menu with matching wines and were not disappointed. Dishes were delicious and good serving as were the matching wines. Made for a romantic long lunch.

    Could not fault any aspect of our meal. As locals, this is a fave spot and it did not disappoint this time, as we had one of the best meals yet. For mains, other half insisted on choosing his favourite goat dish again, I chose fish which was imaginatively prepared and beautifully presented. Little touches like the amuse bouche, fresh bread and palate cleansers were perfect.

    Great place to take interstate visitors or anyone for a special occasion. The food and service are always great, you’ll be offered interesting local wines, and you can take a pleasant drive through the hills to get there. (And then zip home on the freeway)

About the restaurant

Folks, this isn’t some hipster name – The Currant Shed at McLaren Flat was literally a shed to dry currants, which was big business back in its day. As currants fell out of favour, the place was left to ruin until the 1970s when the transformation began, turning it into the restaurant and vineyard you see today.

With a commitment to pairing fresh produce with local wines, the menu reads like an almanac of considered, and slightly eclectic, food combinations. ‘Kingfish – fennel – lime’, the freshness almost jumps off the page. ‘peri peri – flathead – cauliflower – walnut’, how have you not had those together before? Luckily, you’re about to! Wherever possible, ingredients are sourced from close by, including their own garden.

The team at The Currant Shed pride themselves on not only eating local, but drinking local too so you can look forward to an impressive South Australian wine list.
