We are just back from a very wet morning at Pyrmont Markets where Tim and I were selling our venison. And while the weather wasn’t great, lots of lovely regulars came to stock up and stay for a chat. I also had a great morning on the shopping front bringing home a box of beautiful micro-herbs and edible flowers from Darling Mills, fresh feta from Pecora Dairy, fresh broad beans and kipflers from the Southern Highlands.
All of the this went into a pretty little salad (above), dressed only with grassy green extra virgin Kimbri olive oil produced by Mum and Dad (you can order it via this address).
We also brought home a fennel and pork salami from Feather and Bone, and it was just delicious. Then it was a little bowl of Turkish delight mastic ice cream from market first-timers Booza, topped with a few segments of blood orange.
Usually we head straight home to Orange after the markets but this weekend we’ll stay with my parents in the city and take the kids for a bus trip or two around town. Public transport is a bit of a thrill for Alice and Tom, it doesn’t take much to impress country kids!
