Hello Spring: Your Guide to eating with the Seasons!

Local Hello Spring: Your Guide to eating with the Seasons!

It’s  been  a  beautiful  winter,  cold  nights  and  glorious  sunny  days.  We  hope  all  of  you  have  taken  a  moment  to  cherish  the  season...

We  know  for  us  nothing  says  winter  like  a  brief  dip  at  Newcastle  Baths  followed  by  a  spot  of  whale  watching  at  the  Cowrie  Hole...  Life  doesn’t  get  much  better!  But  the  seasons  have  turned  and  it’s  time  to  welcome  spring,  yeah!! For  the  first  half  of  spring  we  will  be  blessed  with  the  fruits  of  winter  harvest,  broccoli,  cauliflower,  sugar  snap  peas  (the  troops  are  devouring  these  by  the  bag!)  celery, rhubarb  and  apples.  

Rachel from Myrtle and Pepper Local Chocolate Maker At Your Food Collective

To  get  you  through  the  last  of  those  cold  nights  in  style  we’ve  teamed  up  with  Rachel  at  Myrtle  and  Pepper  Fine  Chocolates  (keep  your  eyes  peeled  for  a  free  sample  in  orders)  and  for  the  main  course  Matthew  and  the  crew  at  Merrifield  Farm  will  be  bringing  you  mouthwatering  fresh  pork!  The  pork  will  be  in  limited  supply  so  make  sure  you  get  your  orders  in  early  so  you  don’t  miss  out.

Towards  the  beginning  of  October  things  will  really  start  to  liven  up  and  feel  a  little  more  like  spring.  We’ve  already  had  a  glimpse  of  what  Peter’s  peaches  will  taste  like,  and  Sandi’s  Blueberries  and  Jo’s  strawberries  won’t  be  too  far  behind  that. In  the  Pantry;  the  flavour  and  colour  of  Amber  Drop  Honey  will  gradually  lighten  as  the  girls  enjoy  foraging  on  new  season  swamp  mahogany  blossoms  and  mango  flowers.  And  Sandi  at  Blushing  Blueberries  will  be  releasing  her  exciting  new  range  including  Japanese  Pickled  Blueberries!  Credit  to  her  delicious  products,  Sandi  will  be  busy  representing  NSW  at  the  Melbourne  Fine  Food  Expo  next  month,  go  Sandi!

Sandi from Local Blue Berry Farm Blushing Blueberries at Your Food Colelctive

We’re  also  working  on  exciting  partnerships  with  Pineapple  Fitness  to  help  get  you  beach  ready,  Bacco’s  Bakery  for  everything  Italian  and  perhaps...  delicious  local  doughnuts  if  we’re  lucky. 

We’re  loving  getting  to  know  all  of  you  down  at  the  Hub, so  keep  sharing  all  your  secrets  for  loving  local.

HELLO SUMMER: Your Guide to eating with the Seasons

For us it’s the smell of jasmine on the streets, the feeling of sand between your toes and a whole lot of trails, yeah! Excitingly it’s also a great time for produce. The fields are a buzz with spring crops that are starting to mature and all those delicious fruits you’ve been dreaming of are almost ready. Milk production is in full swing and kombucha has set a cracking pace.
