Workshops, markets and other things

markets11markets02markets01markets09I’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 8th
8:30am – 1:00pm
St Paul’s Park, Piper StreetKyneton VIC

Lancefield Farmers’ Market (4th Sat of the month)
Saturday August 22nd
9am – 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.
