Paddock to Plate

A celebration of King Island and Tasmania’s world-class produce, Kittawa Lodge offers a true paddock to plate experience.

Made fresh daily and delivered to your lodge, each meal is specifically curated by your on-site private cook, to deliver seasonal and high-quality ingredients, with a deep connection to the island.

You will also enjoy a range of Tasmanian-made delicious snacks in your pantry on your arrival, to be enjoyed throughout your stay, and the welcome surprise of a home-made treat upon your return from a day of adventuring.

Put your feet up, and enjoy your Kittawa Lodge experience.

 

Breakfasts

You will arrive to your lodge with your fridge and pantry stocked with all of the breakfast provisions you could ever need.

Freshly baked bread, local free-range eggs, locally-smoked bacon, locally-made relish and truss tomatoes are perfect for a cooked breakfast.

Locally-made granola, exclusive to Kittawa Lodge, can be paired with Tasmanian natural yoghurt and home-stewed apples, for a wholesome start to your day.

And there is always local manuka honey and locally-made jam, and fresh fruit, for those wanting to grab some breakfast on-the-run.

A range of coffee pods, which we recycle for you, as well as a range of Tasmanian-made teas are also on-hand to warm up your morning for you.

Lunches

Each day, your lunch will be brought across to your lodge, freshly prepared by your on-site private cook.

Your friendly hosts can set the dining table in your lodge, if you would like to enjoy your lunch while relaxing in your lodge, gazing out through your panoramic windows.  Or, otherwise, we can place your lunch in your picnic hamper and point you in the direction of a secluded white sandy-beach or a picturesque walking trail.

Lunches will vary depending on the seasonal produce available, though can include locally-smoked chicken breast salad, bruschetta with field mushrooms and oven-baked fennel and wild rocket, or a celebration of King Island Dairy, with a selection of local cheeses, free-range cured meats, Tasmanian pickled vegetables and locally-made accompaniments.

Dinners

Prepared fresh by your on-site private cook, each day your friendly hosts will stock your fridge with a platter of gourmet provisions, together with an easy step-by-step recipe card, for you to whip up a delicious meal in the fully-equipped and stylish kitchen in your lodge.

While there is seasonal variation, you may enjoy a freshly-caught local Southern Rock Lobster with herbed butter and salad, grass-fed local aged scotch fillet or lamb with an array of fresh vegetables, and many other incredible dishes, all utilising local herbs, garlic, lemon and accompaniments.

Each dinner will come with a home-made dessert, which generally only needs to be heated up, and can include flourless chocolate tortes, sticky date puddings and other guest favourites.
