I really enjoy Grab
Your Fork but gee, going out for dinner with her must be a bit
annoying. Those gorgeous photos of the food don't take themselves!
post she records a Yum Cha with a bunch of other food nerds. And
look at all the lenses!
Much as I appreciate her excellent blogging, and the spectacular
photos, it'd be kinda off-putting dining with someone snapping every
In other food news, we went to the Food for the Future
Fair on Saturday in Chippendale. It was quite small, but really
lovely. Beautiful warm weather and a very relaxed atmosphere. I've
always loved the area, and miss living on Rose
Street. Now the community has planted loads of edible plants in
the streets, and are doing a community composting project.
The fair could have used a few more stalls, but it was pretty cool
nevertheless. I would have bought more vegetables if our garden
hadn't suddenly jumped into productive mode and we hadn't got our
fruit and veg box that morning.
Saturday night we had a few people we'd run into at the fair around
for an impromtu spring feast from the garden. I made a couple of
bruschetta from garden ingredients. One was blanched baby broad beans
with mint and slivers of parmesan. The other was blanched black
Tuscan kale (cavolo nero) with sage and feta. Yummy!
I'm looking forward to more from the garden. We also had the first
brocolli last week. We've been eating delicious rocket for a month or
two now. Next up should be radish, snow peas, lettuces and more broad
beans and brocolli.
