The Friday List


Last weekend was a fairly big one for our Farm Kitchen, and family. Saturday, as part of the Orange Wine Week program, we co-hosted our second Moveable Feast event with The Agrestic Grocer and it was loads of fun; a great busload of people and a beautiful, if not rather hot day. Then on Sunday we celebrated our Tom’s fifth birthday with a little party (pics above and below) with just a handful of his friends, a few foam light sabres (thank you Rachel Goodsir for that fantastic tip!) and one incredible cake made by my friend Kathy. I’m really really bad at cake decorating so for the past two years have outsourced Tom’s birthday cake to this clever lady. Thank you Kathy - he was literally jumping up and down with excitement when it came out.
I hope you all have lovely weekends planned, ours, thankfully will be a fair bit quieter than last. And for now, here are a few links for your reading and cooking pleasure! Sophiex

Ps - we now have a beautiful cabinet of 1803 Artisan Deer goodies permanently at the Farm Kitchen (see below) so please let me know if anyone wants to come and have a look sometime. 

I was really thrilled to appear over on one of my favourite Australian blogs The Countryphiles last week, thank you Danielle for your can read the interview here.

Now that daylight saving and warmer weather has arrived, we are thinking about barbecues and easy dinners...the recipe for these venison and pear burgers was sent to us by a lovely lady who came along to the Farm Kitchen last weekend and I can’t wait to try it. It comes from the River Cafe’s Hugh Fearnley Wittingstall. Thanks Hugh.

Everyone loves a noodle salad, and it's almost the season where you have to bring a salad to dinners and things...this one's coming with me.

Tim’s sister Penny has some really stunning new pieces in her 1803 Artisan Deer Design collection and they’re all available to purchase now! From buttery soft deer leather coasters to stunning Ipad cases, handbags, purses and the full range of hand-forged knives. These all would make beautiful, unique Christmas presents - pop over to her online shop to see more..
Island Menu captures Tasmania so beautifully, and their whisky gravlax looks pretty great too!

Love the look of this family home. It has inspired me to de-clutter my own.

Can't wait to try this clean, green soup from My Darling Lemon Thyme

Blood orange season is almost over...just enough time left then to make this marmalade with bourbon.

The Lunchlady goes up against Aeroplane cheesecake and WINS! Of course. I love this blog. Also a bit keen to try this healthy snickers recipe. Can it be true?
