  1. A delicious jumble of farmers’ market goodies. A softened Spring Creek Organics leek and Wehill Farm garlic in Myrtleford @thebutterfactor, added @warialdabeef chorizo. Then in went steamed Westernport mussels and Wakame, pepper and parsley. I served them Belgian style with frîtes - tasty!

  2. Did you know that Aussies consume and average of 6.3kg of bacon per person annually, yet 75% of it is imported? If the label says made in Australia from local and imported ingredients, the meat will be imported. And this is contributing to driving farmers off the land. Such a shame!

    We support local ethical farms and producers by buying bacon for our meals from @greenvalefarm, The Gypsy Pig, @pacdonpark and Istra Meats.

  13. Whenever I take a doughnut photo it always ends up out of focus. These Hapsburg Empire krapfen were so airy, without any trace of oiliness, not so big as to be daunting either 👏💗 (at Hapsburg Empire)
