A few weeks back I posted about Grow it Local and their local growers feast. Well I got tickets. A very big YAY! And the feast was fab. There were: great speakers like Costa from Gardening Australia. Deano brought some fabulous Kombucha. (It was my first time trying Kombucha and I have spent much of today googling it to work out exactly how its made). The venue was fun, everything was beautifully presented and the food was great.
Check out the menu:
The tomatoes and figs had both pretty much gone in the seconds it took me to move from my seat to the buffet.
Is it wrong to hope the woman with the plate piled high with broken figs found a least one half caterpillar in it? (Actually it’s probably a very sad indictment that I can’t even enjoy a beautiful night, with beautiful food without a slight feeling of resentment….)
For me the highlights were; the Eggplant dip – beautifully smooth, slightly smoky and lovely and rich, and the Rhubarb & Berry tarts. But really everything was lovely and to pick favourites is probably not being fair to the rest of the menu.
All that’s left now is to plot how to get tickets to next year’s event and to wonder; who ate my cucumbers, and what happened to my purple congo potatoes (probably not much as the more I eat them, the more I really don’t rate them at all….).
