May 2017. Gareth Howard, ACRE, Camperdown, Sydney.
Gareth Howard is all about fresh, seasonal, local produce served simply.
Acre is located at the old Camperdown bowling club with Pocket City Farm operating the adjoining farm which Gareth uses to build a seasonal and sustainable menu.
Acre is the farmer's home. Humble, practical, tactile, warm and intimate. The food is the celebration, born from the adjacent farm, dictated to by the seasons and by nature, brought together in a simple, heartfelt way.
Gareth uses classic techniques of curing and fermenting to enrich the flavour of his dishes using locally sourced seafood, game, beef and vegetables. The food served at Acre is hearty and succulent with bold pops of colour of what is in season.
