Herstory

Built in 1799

In 1800, Captain William Reid sailed the 30-tonne schooner ‘Martha’ from Sydney to the Hunter River on a mission to collect coal.

Not going far enough north, he sailed into Lake Macquarie and accidentally became the first European person to visit the area.

For many years the lake was known as Reid’s Mistake after his fortuitous error.

Around 1826 it was renamed after Governor Lachlan Macquarie.

Mediterranean flavours

What is old can be new again, food & fire brings us back to the deepest origins of cookery, a practice that is unharnessed, allowing for the authentic flavours to speak for themselves.

Martha’s focus is cooking with our Mediterranean Mibrasa ovens. Mibrasa (pronounced meh-brasa) is a primitive culinary method imparting subtle, smoky palate from the simplicity of cooking over hot coals reaching beyond 500 degrees Celsius.
