Baby shimeji mushrooms
Last month I missed the Good Living Growers' Markets for the first time in 2006: it was a very sad realisation indeed.
So I was determined not to miss this month's one, which was happily bathed in glorious yellow sunshine. It was t-shirt and shorts weather, more akin to summer than the second calendar day of spring.
I went a little crazy with the photos this month. Perhaps absence does make the heart grow fonder...
Double smoked pancetta
Rowan Farm jams
Sparkling juices from Parkers Organics
Blood orange juice
King Edward potatoes
No more potatoes
Ahhh seasonal produce. What a novel concept!
These golden beets looked gorgeous.
Fresh egg linguini pasta from Pastabilities
Persian baby figs
Lemon curd, Seville marmalade and passionfruit curd
Wagyu beef pies
Cheeses from Formaggi Ocello
Cheese covered with dried grapes
I've tried this once before. It had a beautiful sharp tangy flavour, but at $100/kg it was a rare treat.
Cheese covered with hay
Cheese covered with vine leaves
And yet more cheese
Tasty lamb ahead
Mushroom stall all sold and gone by 10am
DIY cupcakes from Whisk and Pin
With the current cupcake craze at fever pitch, Whisk and Pin's latest addition to their range is a cupcake mix which comes complete with icing mixture and flower decorations.
Blue cheeses from Simon Johnson
I was drooling at the sight of the Papillon roquefort at the rear left (and by the way, the Providores' Market in Alexandria sells Roquefort for $70/kg compared to $90/kg at David Jones Food Hall).
Chilcotin raspberry jam from Anne Jam $7.00 or 3 for $18.00
After sampling the Chilcotin raspberry jam for months, I finally succumbed to some jammy goodness. Made from organic raspberries, it's a pure jam of 60% fruit and 40% sugar. Berry bits are aplenty and the taste is pure raspberry sweetness. I've been having it on toast; it was divine on thick farmers yoghurt too.
