We were up for some Al Fresco dining. The term Al Fresco dining refers to eating outside and in Sydney's temperate climate it is especially popular in the autumn, summer and spring when temperatures and weather are most favourable. I also love the casual party like atmosphere.

Our talented hosts cooked up some New Zealand Greenshell Mussels cooked in white wine and tossed in a wok with a rich and fragrant tomato, chilli and garlic sauce combined the parsley and basil. Accompanied by a cold crisp slightly acid French Ros'e.
Another treat was the beer, Duvel Moortgat Brewery is a Flemish family owned brewery founded in 1871. Beer has been made in Belgium since the middle ages and the blonde or golden ale of which Duvel is a typical ale is one of the most popular bottled beers in the country as well as being well known internationally. Its name means "Devil". The first thing you notice about the Duvel is the head, it mushrooms up and stays to sip through, a great beer to try.
