Well winter is here and doesn't the cold weather just bring out your inner chef!!
I don't know about you but winter just gives me the warm a fuzzy's.... All I can think of is the perfect setting of a cosy house with that crackling open fire, gorgeous tasty wholesome foods, fresh warm bread, cheeses, wines and the best of the best at this time of year.... Truffles, Truffles And More Truffles.
Maybe living in England for so long just bought out my inner pom or eskimo, one of the two but
I just love the winter months here in Perth. We have the crisp cold mornings & evenings, the most amazing of sunny days and then the perfect amount of rainy ones to make us moan about the weather..... lol
To boot there are some awesome gatherings of people from far and wide to experience the best that cuisine, chefs, food and wine have to offer.
On June 23rd-25th - The 7th annual Truffle Kerfuffle will be held at Fonty's Pool, Manjimup, Western Australia and I would totally recommend you get a ticket and head down if you have the time.
There will be:
*A village of stall holder offering up their wares and tasty treats, of which I am happy to say Charli G's Dairy Emporium will be also taking down my crackers and lavosh to accompany her amazing selection of local and imported cheese.
*Special Truffle Dinners
And so much more!!!
On June 24, 11am - 5pm Wine Show By The Bay will also be showing off the best of the best that day and I am also very happy the say that Geoff from Little Cheese Shop will also be featuring my crackers at his stall, so get down while they last and treat yourself to the perfect winter comforts for the season.
We all spend so much time doing everything that we have to do and just not enough time doing exactly what we want to do!! So Enjoy a little....
My passion is food and winter is the best time to experience all of that, we can spend time making and enjoying those cosy comforts that come so rarely with a need here in Australia. With big family dinners the aroma of braised meats, freshly baked pies and the empty pop of that red wine cork, its time to bring everyone together.
So dust off those winter warmers and dig out nana's best soup recipes.
Winter Is Here....
