In the morning, we went to the Bendigo Art Gallery to see the ‘Genius and Ambition’ exhibition. Close to 100 works from the Royal Academy of Arts, London were exclusively shown at the gallery and featured some of the world’s best artists such as Constable, Gainsborough, and Turner.
Lunch: Day 2
After perusing the shops at Daylesford, we had a late lunch in Trentham. The Colliban Foodstore is a café, wine bar, fine wine merchant, and food store located just off the main street.
The menu had some tantalising dishes that were very reasonably priced. Items on the menu include ‘Fresh black lip mussels with chilli, coriander, garlic and white wine broth ($16.00)’ and ‘Crispy fried quail with lime, sweet potato and chilli jam ($12.00)’.
I was going to order the ‘Vegetarian lasagne ($17.00)’but they had run out. Instead, I chose the ‘Roast Veggie Frittata ($17.00) with smoked salmon and rocket’. A tremendous slice of frittata that was jam-packed full of vegetables arrived with plenty of smoked salmon. I find that fritattas can be a little bland at cafés but this one was delectable with bags of flavour. However, a relish or condiment of some kind would have been a nice addition.

After lunch, we browsed the lovely gourmet food and wine that adorned every nook and cranny.
