TWO food professionals have joined forces to deliver a new dining experience at The York Mill.

Black Wattle Catering’s Lynda Burke and Chef One Catering’s David Watts are the team behind the café-style menu, delivering everything from creamy chicken penne pasta and nanna’s home-made sausage rolls through to sexy steak burgers with tomato chutney salad and beetroot relish.

Trading as Black Wattle Catering at The York Mill, their focus is on fresh local produce and seasonally-sourced ingredients matched with a highly professional and passionate approach to cuisine.

Burke has made a successful career out of her catering business and deluxe Toodyay bed and breakfast Black Wattle Retreat and is often the wedding caterer of choice in the Wheatbelt.

The York Mill Managing Director John Langton said he was thrilled Burke and Watts had accepted the offer of taking on the venue’s café operations.

“Having operators of this calibre is important to The York Mill because it’s a principle tourist attraction for the area, as well as local residents who delight in the environment,” he said.

“To have good, honest country fare produced with flair is simply brilliant.

“They also cater for private functions, weddings, conferences and tour operations – and hosting these events in our historic flour mill and courtyard gardens is a major point of difference.

“This is wonderful stepping stone to The York Mill’s aspirations for a microbrewery and bistro development on-site.”

Black Wattle Catering at The York Mill is open 10am to 4pm Wednesday to Saturday and 9am to 4pm Sunday. Call (08) 9641 2447 or [email protected] for more details.

The York Mill is at 10 Henrietta Street, York. Further information is at available
