Autumn menu at No. 8 by John Lawson

Ah autumn. The season where things fall off trees and sometimes we eat them.

Winter might be knocking on the door next week, but it’s still autumn for awhile longer at No. 8 by John Lawson, which has cherry-picked the best edible bits of the season in their new autumn-menu.

In chef Lawson’s world that means stuff like Mildura yabbies, Hervey Bay scallops and pine mushrooms, and Milawa duck breast Williams’s pear, Brussels sprouts and foie gras sauce.

But my favourite was the wonderfully named Slippery Jack mushroom risotto. Wild mushrooms in season are hard to come by and should be savoured whenever possible, like St Kilda victories.

All hearty grub designed to be accompanied by an equally robust glass of red – and preferably a fireplace.

So snap a piece of autumn (while it lasts) at No. 8. Don’t forget a loaf of Lawson’s signature whole wheat and beer sourdough on your way out.
