Ode to Autumn Biota Dinner great success

Posted on May 19, 2015 1:39 am Posted by Kirstie Graham

Biota Dining, Bowral  once again supported the BDCU Children’s Foundation with a magnificent dinner for 100 people.  “Ode to Autumn” was held on 13th May, 2015 & raised over $5,000. James Viles, owner and chef of Biota Dining, created a wonderful dining experience.

The menu, created by James consisted of Risotto made with mushrooms from the forest as the entrée, followed by beef cheeks cooked in malt with potato and soft leeks and a sumptuous dessert of goat’s milk meringue with corn ice cream and burnt butter….makes you hungry just reading it.  Entertainment was special indeed, with vocalist Darren Powell entertaining the guests.

A raffle was also possible because of the generous donations of Vittoria Coffee who donated a Capino Espresso Coffee maker won by John Holgate and A basket of Clarins products donated by Glam Fragrance & Beauty in Bong Bong Street, Bowral – won by Suellen Schymetec .  Also donated were two Black & White Photograhs of New York and a $50.00 Blue Illusion gift card.

Special thanks goes to Dan Murphy’s who supplied the wine for the evening and of course, James Viles of Biota Dining for their continuing support not only of this event but all BDCU Children’s foundation events.
