Breakfast in Beaufort highlights Beaufort’s growing food culture and aims to encourage people to stop and explore this charming Victorian country hamlet. We look forward to welcoming you to Beaufort for breakfast every weekend in April 2013.
At Sparrows we are very excited about being involved.

Here are a few pics of the Wood Fired oven that w had built for Sparrows Cafe’s new Kitchen. This is one of a few wood ovens in Beaufort but the only one in a commercial kitchen. The Oven was built using a photo essay of a similar oven built at Moorooduc Estate on Mornington […]
Kate apart from her many talents grows some, a lot actually, tomatoes.
Some we have been do mixed single and mixed varietals of single estate sugo. Black Russians, the big red and the little Red blends. We have also had a crack a t Heather Grandfathers Relish recipe circa 1942. I has come out pretty well 🙂
Here at Sparrows cafe in Beaufort we are all about service.
There is service and then there is service.
It is not always easy to match what people expect as far as service goes. Too nice, sometimes, too aloof other times and hell I thought I treated everyone the same?
Maybe that is the problem, maybe the key to good service is to be manipulative “Match needs with customers!” Maybe insincerity is what it all about. “Darling you are fabulous!”
Maybe we, all of us are customers, are a little out of kilter with our expectations. Acknowledgement, polite respect and listening, from both serving staff & customer, is all that is really needed. Should not be hard but I suppose it involves people and peoples is hard.
My coffee is getting cold, next time.

It seems such a long way away until the middle of February when we can have this wood fire oven fired up for the first time. It is one of two we have planned for the building, it will be awesome when wood fired pizza, roasts and bread will be available in Beaufort.
While this is only one of a few Wood fired ovens in Beaufort, this is certainly on the only one in a commercial kitchen, well almost we are still building that around the oven 🙂
