Spring at last and a season quite a few weeks behind in our garden. Use the search for broad beans and asparagus. New recipes will follow later in September when we start picking.

As Sandor Palmai, chef at the Rockford Stonewall Table once put it, “It’s the swearing season.” Artichokes of course! So time consuming, so annoying, so delicious if you make the effort. Click on the image

Such a lot that needs doing and the Seville Oranges are maybe a week away from being perfect. The absolutely best orange for marmalade, and we have a treasured recipe fro the late Margaret Hetzel. A brilliant cook, Margaret was also a perfectionist and there was never a pip to be found in her marmalade click here for the recipe.

peach ice cream
It’s not every day you get magnificent, perfectly ripe peaches from a friend’s tree. So spectacular that the old recipe has been tweaked. I no longer attempt anything with stone fruit unless I can get fruit, in season, from a friend’s tree or a supplier like The Food Forest who come to our local Adelaide Showgrounds Farmers’ Market….click on the image for more detail about this gorgeous peach ice cream bombe.
Just realised there’s no meringue recipe on the website…I’ll get it up at some stage this week. Start saving egg whites.

Above, not new, but proof that vegan food doesn’t need to be tasteless muck. Beware two of us nearly ate what was intended for four. Inspired by reading a recent Australian Gourmet Traveller daily email I knew immediately the recipe idea could be taken in a different direction. It is super delicious warm or at room temperature but the fridge would kill it! click here
Don’t be afraid to take any of our recipes in a different direction. Snow peas may still be good to go, but when asparagus and broad beans have long since gone …instead try snow peas, spring onions, quickly blanched cos or iceberg refreshed in ice and water.
the best ever chocolate tart...!
