Beef Lasagne with Salad - Ladle Food Store AUD10
The thick solid bechamel sauce smothered the beef filling, but when eaten on it's own, the buttery stodge was quite nice.
Each savoury dish was paired with remarkably fresh salad leaves that were combined with sweet cheery tomatoes and crumbled smooth Persian-style fetta cheese. Nice and healthy. Had the salad leaves been dressed with a bit of oil and vinegar, it would have been a perfect side salad.
There was also a rather sweet and curry-spiced tomato chutney served on the side. Neither the pie nor lasagne needed it.
If you come to Kyneton, and all the big names are fully booked, with a bit of effort, you might be able to squeeze yourself into a quiet corner and partake in a rather decent light lunch.
