Wobbly Boot Vineyard -Asparagus Salmon Nori Roulade


Yesterday was a lovely day for a drive in the Tasmanian country side for a trip to Wobbly Boot vineyard. Wobbly Boot Vineyard is in a very quiet and peaceful location in Campania just outside of Richmond, owned and operated by Paul and Lynda Williams, they do not have a cellar door open all the time, but they do open for groups & functions and they will occasionally open at other times, so make sure you follow their Facebook page to see when they will be open. I will popping back in over summer for a picnic with friends for sure, there are  so many gorgeous spots to settle in with some wine and a picnic,  and you can find some delicious Tasmanian produce on the way from Richmond, Cambridge and the Coal Valley region for the picnic. Paul and Lynda have shared a favorite recipe of theirs with us that is easy to whip up for entertaining, it is healthy, it suits a variety of dietary requirements and is delicious too! img_0100img_0101img_0102img_0104img_0105img_0108img_0109img_0110img_0112img_0113img_0115

Asparagus Salmon Nori

16 asparagus spears
1 nori sheet
16 slices of smoked salmon (250g approximately)

Cook the asparagus in a large saucepan of boiling water for 2 minutes or until bright green and tender crisp. Refresh under cold water. Drain.

Cut each nori sheet in half to make two rectangles. Cut each rectangle crossways into 8 short strips.

Wrap 1 slice of salmon around each asparagus spear, then wrap in a strip of nori, shiny-side up. Place, seam-side down, on a serving platter

Doo Town Eaglehawk Neck

How do you like the new lounge room in our house reno, it’ll DOO-for-us? Pretty amazing view. No, we did not come up with the name of our house, we didn’t even realise our house was in Doo town until we got our land tax bill, DOOFORUS is actually on the address, cracked us up! Such a  peaceful place to live and a hotspot for tourists visiting  the Tasman Peninsula in Tasmania, with its close location to the Port Arthur Historic Site. I can actually remember visiting Doo Town when I was a kid and giggling about at all the house names.


According to wikipedia Doo Town started in in 1935 when one shack owner put Doo/99 on his house name plate and then neighbours put name plates on their own shacks, Doo Me and Doo us, then the trend caught on and most houses now have a plate with the house name that starts with Doo. img_0012-1gunnadooeloiseemmett-com-we-dooeloiseemmett-com-rumdoeloiseemmett-com-drdoolittleeloiseemmett-com-doo-town-9eloiseemmett-com-doo-town-8eloiseemmett-com-doo-town-7eloiseemmett-com-doo-town-6eloiseemmett-com-doo-town-4eloiseemmett-com-do-for-noweloiseemmett-com-2dootown-12doo-town-2doo-town-1My husband and I had very different opinions on what Doo-Towns most eligible bachelor’s house name plate implied? I was thinking not working to hard?! doo-drop-in-eloiseemmett-comeloiseemmett-com-thistle-doo


At the Blow Hole carpark at the end of Doo Town you will find what has been called some of Australia’s best fish and chips. Phil and Bev have been running the Doo-lishus food van as long as I have been living on the peninsula so over 11 years, it started with Ice cream and drinks but with Phil’s experience as a fisherman, I’m guessing it naturally moved into fish and chips too. It is always local well cooked fish and my kids love it, it would have to be some of the best views in Tasmania for lunch too!doolisious-doo-towndoo-lishus-3-doo-towndoo-lishus-2-doo-towneloiseemmett-com-blow-hole-2eloiseemmett-comeloiseemmett-com-vipThe VIP lounge
