Last Friday we went along to Orange's Slow Summer Night Market. It was a great night with lots of great local food and wine, including two of our favourites, Printhie Wines (poured by our mate Ed, above) and Ross Hill. We also saw the crew behind the upcoming Millamolong Polo Carnival (March 16 and 17). This is a great day out, very relaxed and family-friendly, so if you are in or around Orange, hope to see you there!
Farm Kitchen lunch this year, to be held next Saturday, February 9, so please let me know if you'd like to come along. And in the meantime, as usual here on a Friday, here's a little round-up of links that might make some good weekend reading and cooking;
