Inn on the Twenty

  Lime Blossom Cheesecake with Charlie Bee Honey pavlova and Jordan Valley stone fruit compote.  Doesn't that sound delicious!?  I was so enamoured with my lunch that it wasn't until the dessert that I remembered my camera.

Inn on the Twenty in Jordan is in the middle of wine country and historic Twenty Valley.  This was our first time visiting the restaurant and we were so impressed.  For our starter we shared a Caesar Salad made with baby romaine, crisp Pingue prosciutto and charred tomato.  R and I chose the same entree which was Handmade Linguini with pancetta, Parmesan, fava beans and cream sauce.  We sprang for the Tiger shrimp too...why not, we were on holiday.

There was no question who was going to be in the seat with a view.  Better luck next time, R!
(and there will be a next time)

And how perfect!  A wool/quilting shop called Stitch was nearby.  The shop owner was kind enough to allow some snaps for my blog.  Since I've promised myself I will not hoard wool I didn't buy anything but I really, really wanted to!

Sipping wine and enjoying some fine dining was a perfect way to cap off our holiday together.  We weren't hungry again until almost nine o'clock in the evening so I whipped out a frying pan and made us some eggs and peameal bacon.  Our feet were firmly planted back on earth but it was nice while it lasted.


  1. That is beautiful! Hope you are not too sad that your holiday time is over.

  2. Oh my those puddings sound delicious and delightful....

  3. And what a splendid view, too! You are a strong soul to walk out of that yarn store with no wool!

  4. Oh that dessert looks delicious! You have made 'staycations' look wonderfully just goes to show how much fun you can have within an hour or so's drive from your own front door.

  5. What a lovely sounding day. I'm envious of your mini-trips. And that cheesecake almost looks too good to eat. Almost.

  6. verity, Sunday morning had me hoping to hear R call out that we had won the lottery but sadly, that didn't happen so it's back to work.

    Joan, Normally we will share a dessert but not this time!

    makedoandread, Seven balls of Rowan Felted Tweed waiting to be knit into a Tangled Yoke cardie kept me honest...but it wasn't easy!

    Rachel, I do wish we had more in the way of English history or art to explore but I have to accept the fact that I don't live in England!

    Danielle, Too true! Just looking at the photo makes me want to head right back there for more!

  7. You have made my mouth water! The part of the world that you live in looks lovely!
