Cygnet gets a new pop-up Italian takeaway

The southern Tasmanian town of Cygnet has a reputation as a gourmet hotspot, but despite its several cafés and eateries it can still be hard to find quality cuisine early in the week.

That grated with talented local chef Darryl Gillespie, who is well-known for his high-quality Huon Valley Kitchen pies sold at many Hobart and regional markets.

So he decided to launch a pop-up Italian takeaway every Tuesday from 3.30pm on the main street of Cygnet, adjacent to R&D Butchers.

If all goes well and locals support the venture, another pop-up featuring Asian flavours is a possibility.

The Italian menu will include dishes like hand-made ricotta gnocchi; spaghetti with prawns, chilli and garlic, penne Napolitano with pork sausage, and chicken scallopini. 

A great idea - and one that deserves to succeed. Line-up behind me on Tuesday.
