For the ultimate fine dining experience in Grandchester, visit Homage Restaurant at Spicers Hidden Vale on Grandchester-Mt Mort Road. As the restaurant’s name suggests, award-winning Chef Ash Martin and his team expertly construct Modern Australian dishes, which pay homage to the land, local farmers and produce from the Darling Downs and Lockyer Valley. Indulge in creations such as Wagyu tartare, coal pit mayo, eucalyptus and green strawberries; or duck leg and fermented cabbage chiko roll, pumpkin and raspberry sweet and sour. Those with heartier tastes may be tempted by coal-roasted young chicken, onions, fermented corn and chicken gravy, before chocolate and mint cookie, beef fat and choc chip ice cream; while gazing up to the stars across the Little Liverpool mountain ranges.
A few words from Homage Restaurant
Homage Restaurant is a hyper-local dining destination in the midst of Australia's food bowl.
Set on 12,000 acres, just one hour from Brisbane, and upon some of the most fertile farming soil in the Southern Hemisphere – the highly awarded Homage Restaurant has a real sense of place. Purification and creation were quickly embraced following a fire in 2018 that burnt the restaurant to the ground.
With the Homage market garden, orchard, mango trees, beehives, and free-range farm to harvest from, ingredients are either grown onsite or sourced from producers who live just down the road. As a result, Homage's menus are spontaneous and ever changing.
Executive Chef Ash Martin is passionate about ‘from the land and sea' philosophies and sourcing from local farmers and producers. His style of cooking places an emphasis on locally sourced, sustainable ingredients combined with structured techniques and sophisticated flavours.
The talented Homage team continue to unlock the natural, organic and seasonal treasures of the Scenic Rim, Darling Downs, Lockyer Valley and Ipswich regions.
Homage create with traditional methods of cookery; fire, smoke, a preserving room and coal pits. There are no shortcuts. That's what Homage has always been about, but now, Homage is doing it visually in front of diners and in such a pure form.
There is real irony that fire has been such a focal point of cooking over the past five years. The team have striped the food style right back then elevated it to a new creative level. The venue, in its 100-year-old barn, is a better-suited setting for the style of food that Homage is all about.
Onsite market garden – The chefs have embraced the old and forgotten skills of the past by pickling, dehydrating, preserving and smoking food waste. Guests are welcome to join the daily Market Garden Tours which includes the Smokehouse in action and the Fermentation Room that includes rows of pickled and fermented vegetables and fruits in jars.
Homage has 99.9% food waste recovery through feeding the onsite pigs and chickens. Garden waste is composted onsite. Homage collaborate with Mallow Sustainability, a small-scale local business, who collects the food waste, composts it on their farm then Homage purchase produce from their farm.
The honey from the onsite beehives is used to create amazing dishes at Homage.
