Hogget Kitchen x Walhalla￼￼
Exclusive pop-up lunch event in the Historic Township of Walhalla with Gippsland’s very own Hatted Restaurant Hogget Kitchen!
About this event
Join us for an exclusive showcase of Baw Baw’s finest produce and culinary talents with a pop-up lunch by Hogget Kitchen in the historic township of Walhalla Victoria.
Gippsland’s own hatted restaurant Hogget Kitchen is packing their knives and forks and bringing a little bit of Christmas-in-July spirit from Warragul to Walhalla this winter.
Partnering with Baw Baw Shire Council and the Walhalla Goldfields Railway, Hogget Kitchen will bring an immersive fine-dining experience to the rustic halls of The Goods Shed, Walhalla on Sunday the 3rd of July.
Based in Warragul, Hogget Kitchen’s ethos is centred around a Nose-to-Tail approach, sourcing only the freshest produce locally and an ever-changing menu which is influenced by the abundance of each season.
There will be two sessions of the experience commencing 10:30am and 1pm. Each paired with a train ride departing from the historic Walhalla Train Station.
Mingle with friends over mulled wine, hot chai and nibbles served fresh on the platform. Then it’s all board the train for a private ride along the 4kms of scenic historic railway, taking you on a spectacular journey through the Stringers Gorge and across bridges on the way to Thomson River.
