Another week in the kitchen, another collection of little burns and cuts and another memory card full of photos of meals, places and pretty things that I need more time than seems available to edit, collate and put together here! But in the meantime, here are a few links for weekend reading, planning and cooking. So grab a cup of tea and a piece of toast and have a little scroll...
The Friday List
Firstly, for those in or around Bathurst, NSW - on Tuesday, June 3 I'm going along to a dinner hosted by BooksPlus and the Bathurst Wholefood Kitchen all for my book! It's going to be a great night, with recipes (including of course our venison) cooked from the book and a nice chance to catch up and share a meal together. Tickets are $45 and you can book through BooksPlus (02 6331 5994).
Fantastic story via The Selby about one of my most favourite food writers, Yvette van Boven and her life in Amsterdam with partner Oof Verschuren.
The NSW city of Forbes is celebrating Food revolution Day tomorrow with some fantastic events. In and around the regular farmers Market at Templar St, there'll be free demonstrations on raised veggie bed gardening, jam making, butchering, pizza making and composting. From 10-2pm. Get there if you can!
Mini donuts from the House that Lars Built - one of my favourite blogs by the incredibly talented Copenhagen-based Brittany Jepsen. And by the way, check out these pictures of Brittany's sister's wedding; holy oversized flowers! It's stunning.
My clever friend Ami has just launched a brand new blog called Greenskis. She's all about giving your family the yummiest and most nutritious food possible and has already collected some fantastic recipes in the few weeks she's been blogging. Definitely one to bookmark.
I had one of the most memorable meals of my life at Del Cambio in Turin. It's one of the world's oldest restaurants and when I went (10 years ago!) was all faded grandeur and flaking frescoes. I loved this New York Times article about it's history and recent restoration. Oh to go back for dinner tonight...
I didn't really get Blood and Champagne at first - but I loved it nonetheless. This blog is really just an ever-growing (linked) collection of beautiful images capturing places and spaces I'd quite like to cook/eat/play/sleep in. Solid gold eye candy.
How to dry herbs via 101 Cookbooks.
Can't wait to make this chocolate poppyseed cake.
One of my favourite artists Mirka Mora is having a retrospective exhibition in Melbourne and spoke about it over on the Design Files last week. What a beautiful story. Thanks for the heads up Anna D! Lets go.
