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 caf├ęs 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.
