The Friday List


This week, the last of Spring holidays, has passed in another haze of beautiful days out exploring this region of ours, trying to sneak off to the computer to squeeze in a little bit of work here and there, and most excitingly, learning a few new recipes from Marion (above) and Cedric, our French house guests. These guys are staying for a couple of months, helping out on the farm and introducing me to a whole new world of caramel-making and crepe flipping. Zut alors.

I'm not sure they're so used to the chaos of cooking with and around our kids, but they're getting there! Here's another late Friday List - not all that comprehensive I know, but hopefully you'll find a few good reads in there. Have a great weekend, Sophiex

ps - Tim and Alice will be at Pyrmont Growers Market tomorrow and it promises to be a really great morning. Please head down (if in the area) and say hi! And, if Alice serves you, please check your change...

It's picnic season, and this line-up of recipes will get anyone reaching for the basket and thermos.

This comment, and many more about recipe posts, collected for our reading pleasure/bewilderment on this hysterical post via The Toast ....“I didn’t have any eggs, so I replaced them with a banana-chia-flaxseed pulse. It turned out terrible; this recipe is terrible.”

San Fransisco's Bar Tartine is famous for beautiful bread and big, flavourful food. I've never been, but after reading this post and this recipe for their sourdough. Am putting it on 'the list' of places to (one day) go.

Cannot wait to make this summer fruit madeira cake from Farmette

Am very keen to do this e-course.
