Magiche polpette di carne! These home-made Italian pork meatballs are delicately flavoured with pepper and fennel and are bathed in a rich, chunky tomato sauce. They come with a bed of risoni pasta and fresh shaved parmesan to serve. Lovingly handcrafted by Mic Giuliani of Sirocco South (see About Mic, below), this meal is for the first night on the track only (they’ve been pasteurised but not dehydrated) and comes in a 2 serve pack.

    100% recommend this for the first night! Tasted amazing, and the serving size was great for two people (with just the right amount of room for dessert afterwards!)

    Excellent first night meal – very delicious. The frozen meatballs kept our canned wine & beers cold on the short walk in! You certainly don’t feel like you’re “camping” when eating meals like this.

    What is it with this hiking stuff, aren’t we meant to be doing it rough and tough? This meal was so delicious, so easy and very filling. I couldn’t have done it better in my own home kitchen. Why not top off an amazing hiking experience with amazing food.

    Very flavoursome, plentiful and easy to prepare for our first night’s meal. 8 of us ate together and we could heat it all up in the one large saucepan.

    Superb! One of the tastiest pre packed meals I have enjoyed in a long time. Only downside to having more od this delicious meal is the weight for a mutli day hike – best enjoyed on the first night.

    This was our favourite meal. We had two gourmet meals but Gayle correctly advised us at this time of the year it was too hot (Jan) and the second meal may not make it to night 2. Keep in mind if you are hiking in Jan/Feb.

    My favourite meal of the whole trip – we had this for our wedding anniversary and it was delicious. All you needed to do was heat it up and it was done. Highly recommend.

    This was really good for prepared food! The best meal of the hike and tasted delicious and well spiced without being too salty.

    This was sooooo good. My 11 year old daughter LOVED it. We had it on the first night of the hike. We did however take our own pasta as only one very small bag was provided for the two of us (??). I would eat this at home very happily. Lots of sauce and meatballs, just a small amount of pasta.

    • Gail MacCallum

      Hi Rachel – thanks so much for the feedback. We’ve doubled the amount of pasta that goes out with it; let us know if you think that’s still not enough …

    So, so good to have this treat on the first night. Like a home cooked meal, super easy and yummy.

    Delicious! Well worth the carrying weight as it was tasty and nice not to have something dehydrated on the first night. Generous serve too.

    Strongly recommended as a first night meal – nothing like getting to eat real food on a multi-day walk, let alone something tasting so great. Dead easy to prepare. The effort that has gone into preparing and packaging up such tasty, practical food is clear. The delivery service from Ian and Gail is absolutely fantastic – great to see such customer focus and service.

    Yep, absolutely delicious first night meal! So easy to prepare and we both agreed we need the recipe for home (you’ve got my email) excellent proportioning for the two of us and well balanced with the seasoning.

    Super delicious and quick one pot meal. The flavours of the fennel and tomato sauce were lovely and warming after a fresh walk in the tassie air. Generous serving, and topped off with parmesan. Simply delicious and hearty food 🙂

Items in our First Night Fabulous range are real, fresh Tasmanian food. Our Sirocco South meals are vacuum-sealed and pasteurised after cooking and testing has shown that they’re stable at room temperature for up to several days – but for absolute safety we sell them on the condition that you’ll consume them on night one, at Surveyors Cabin.

We store Sirocco South meals frozen. That means they’re defrosting when we deliver your food. If you take delivery the day before you start your walk, we strongly recommend that you store the meal in a refrigerator overnight (don’t re-freeze it).


Our friend Mic Giuliani is one of the caped crusaders of Tasmanian food. By day, he’s a mild-mannered specialist trainer working for the Tasmanian government. After hours, he’s in the kitchen cooking up magic, using fresh Tasmanian ingredients to create dishes for Sirocco South – his fabulous take on Italian cuisine. Mic’s food has been a sellout favourite at Hobart’s Farm Gate Market and at special events including Taste of Tasmania and Dark Mofo. Now, you’re just a couple of clicks, a bit of typing and a short walk from savouring it on your first night on the Three Capes Track.
