My Island Home Away From Home

It is one of the most stunning places on the planet yet hardly anyone goes there. It is closer to Melbourne than Mt Gambier or Mallacoota and produces some of the cleanest greenest food in the world. It is Flinders Island in Bass Strait and chef Scott Stevenson from MoVida Original was there last weekend cooking for the Furneaux Island Festival.

“This is such a beautiful, unspoiled place,” said Scott, still beaming from meals of rock lobster and Cape Barren goose. Scott snared some great local produce and has been serving this as specials during the week. He is a great fan of Flinders Island Lamb, young lamb that has grazed on the iodine rich grazing country buffeted by the Roaring Forties.

He is dishing up slow cooked shoulder of lamb fragrant with Spanish pimento and other aromatics. Scott plans on a supply of other Flinders Island produce and will be serving these up over summer.
