Mushrooms fit for a knockout soup meander with nutty Zucchini's.

 

It's cold (very cold for us sun worshippers), and the only dandy thing about the coldest month of the year, other than lingering under the doona a little longer, is staying in with friends, enjoying warming plates of fine fare and a cheeky glass of blush. Look away as our Northern Hemisphere dives into Summer and our Instagram feeds are full of what we all daydream about. Here is a harvest bounty that will make you glad its Winter. Mushrooms fit for a knockout soup meander with nutty Zucchini's that would make a satisfying late breakfast with crusty baguette from The Bread & Butter Project and a pastured fried egg. Lots of butter recommended.

Last weeks Harvest bag turned out a little different from what we had anticipated. A late frost hit many of our farmers and in turn made a few lines unavailable. NSW mandarins suddenly finished last week, they were abundant and looking great 2 weeks ago and I just learnt that this is common for the season to conclude this way. New mandarins from South Australia will be hitting our market this week. Cara Cara oranges are a little late this year and our growers tell us will be ready to eat in 3 weeks time. Brussel Sprouts, Green Beans and Yellow Squash are all finished but replacing them are delicious local Hass Avocados, Tomatoes, Chinese Broccoli (similar to broccollini but with more sweet and tender leaves) and in fruit there are really crisp rose apples, ruby red rhubarb and some rather smashing blueberries.

Stay warm and we look forward to seeing you on Saturday.
Please note our Leichhardt pick-up is no longer available.

 
Eat brightly.
