Gosh this has been a long time coming but it’s a goodie…
I often frequent Pope Joan for a delish coffee and a natter to Rochelle, who is lucky enough to be working in the produce store Hams and Bacon. While sipping on a coffee, Rochelle INSISTED that I try a chocolate… a sugar free, […]
Its Feijoa season…”Hooray” all the Kiwis shout!
Autumn is feijoa season. I have seen them at the markets and at the fruit stores also…(I think Australia is finally catching on!)
I don’t think I have ever purchased feijoas from a store or market…just picked them straight from the tree, up off the ground/footpath or […]

I am super EXCITED to bring you this post! It is rather special and I feel honoured that Dori Ellington took the time out to chat to me about her fabulous business Makin’ Groceries a pop up organic greengrocer focusing on local and farmer direct produce.
I love living in the city of Melbourne for so many reasons, in particular the farmers markets.
You don’t have to travel far to find one, so there is really no excuse not to support our local producers…
A sneak peek at my my next story and delicious recipe!
Local smoked rainbow trout from Yarra Valley Caviar.
Purchased at Abbotsford Convent, Slow Food Farmers Market. This market is on the fourth Saturday of every month.
I am a big advocate of eating locally sourced and produced food. Especially when so much love and inspiration has gone into a product, so when I met Kate Foster the lovely lady behind the 100% organic granola ‘Full of Grace’ , I naturally jumped at the chance to have a chat with her and listen […]
