I've been busy baking gluten free delights for Kyneton Farmers Market tomorrow morning - the house is warm and the kitchen fragrant with beeswax baked custards, pumpkin spice and date bread, olives and rosemary, cinnamon pear loaves and buckwheat sourdough... I love the challenge of using fresh season produce in my baking - fresh herbs from the garden, olives, pumpkins and pears from local farmers and of course those beautiful pastured eggs our hens are laying now!
I'll be doing a number of markets this month, so here are the dates:
Kyneton Farmers’ Market (2nd Sat of the month)Saturday August 8th8:30am – 1:00pm St Paul’s Park, Piper Street, Kyneton VIC
Lancefield Farmers’ Market (4th Sat of the month)Saturday August 22nd9am – 1:00pm Centre Plantation, High Street, Lancefield VIC
I am also very excited to be running two Spring workshops in collaboration with the lovely Tasha of A Plot in Common. The first workshop will be an introduction to the art of gluten free bread-making and particularly how to make gluten free sourdough - while the second workshop will be all about cold process soap making - traditional ways to make use of leftover fats and fresh herbs to make beautifully nourishing soap. Go here for more course details and booking. Oh and I did I mention our hens started laying? Yes! On average about 170 eggs a day and rather sizeable too - the most delicious, golden yellow, truly free ranging, pasture raised eggs. We are so happy to be suppling a few local cafes and fine eateries and have them for sale in cartons at Watts Fresh, Kyneton and Health on High Street, Lancefield.
