The Friday List


After coveting the above book for some weeks, I've finally forked out for a copy of Scandinavian Baking by Trine Hahnemann, and it truly is one of the loveliest cook books I've come across. Every single recipe; from buttermilk buns to kringle and Nordic spelt focaccia with fruit and nuts, has been flagged for future baking; the photography is stunning and Trine's approach to baking with a variety of flours and grains is really floating my boat. This is my kind of food.

In other news...Tim is on his way to Sydney for tomorrow's Northside Produce Market, so if you are in that neck of the woods, please visit him, say hi and stock up on our beautiful Mandagery Creek Venison. Otherwise, have a great weekend and happy reading! Sophiex

This weekend I'd love to make and share this rhubarb and rosemary syllabub from Farmette, this mango, chili rice salad from Happy Yolks, this pull-apart baklava bread from Sprinkle Bakes and these fig bars from Sprouted Kitchen.

Lots of great ideas in here for yummy and healthy lunches.

I'd quite like a few of these ricotta fritters with chocolate and orange sauce right about now.

And this Greek yogurt, olive oil and orange blossom cake looks pretty incredible too.

If you are in Sydney this weekend and share a love of talking, reading and sharing great food; check out the Food and Words festival, on tomorrow. The line up of speakers and participating chefs is fantastic. Some spots are still available.

Here are some new blog finds of this week - all of them a rabbit hole of good reads and beautiful things to make, look at and be inspired by...

Blogging over Thyme
The Moon Blush Baker
The Vintage Mixer
The Sugar Hit
