To whet your appetite...Kudos Villas

Hey, guys, now it's my turn to share with you the mouth watering delights that the area around Hepburn Springs has to offer.

Of course, at Kudos Villas you never actually have to leave your room.

Kudos offers the ultimate in indulgence and pampering.  

Makayla gave you and example of the amazing menu that your private chef can cook up for you in your own villa.  They can also co-ordinate the perfect romantic proposal for you (complete with red carpets and rose petals).

Kudos also has a delish selection of ready to eat meals that can be delivered to your villa as well as organising a gourmet picnic hamper for you to take away while you explore the area.

But I'm here to tell you about the amazing food and wine in the area.

Here's a selection of some of the great eateries in the area.

Richard Mee is the head chef and owner.

Or, if you're like me and love to experience vineyards and all they have to offer, why not visit Ellender Estate?

Ellender Estates is a boutique winery located just a short drive from Daylesford.  Here you'll have an opportunity to meet and chat with owners Jenny and Graham Ellender.

The story of how they came to running a vineyard and winery is fascinating.

Bes ure to taste their exquisite 2006 Pinot Noir, whose finish is soft and full of elegant tannins.

For something simple and traditional, why not try The Cosy Corner?

On Tenth Street in Hepburn Springs, Shane Trask & Jennifer Colley have turned Cosy Corner around froma cafe to a a much sought after eating house.  Your Food recommended that youput these guys ahead of your more pompous restaurants when dining out around Daylesford and Hepburn.
