Earth Food Safari by #gourmetsafaris
This was a birthday gift from my wonderful colleagues at ACNT. Blessed!
What a fabulous day hosted by the inimitable @maeveomeara
First stop for coffee and breakfast (croissant with pandan custard...oh my!) At @boon_cafe hosted by Amy Chanta... can't wait to try this place again.
Then on to @carriageworksfarmersmarket
For some tastings...organic produce, out of this world crumpets, goats cheese, heirloom veg, baby veg, mushrooms, basil lettuce (you have to try this!) and achacha.
Third stop was the Gima supermarket in Auburn for all things Turkish. So good to meet the lovely Ulku Gani...she gives great hugs! We tried so much food here and bought some goodies for home too. Grape molasses (#pekmez ) mixed with tahini...yummo! Pepper pastes galore (#onar ), bread (#simit ), olives and cheese (#kasarpeyniri ) and a Turkish porridge (#asure ). Fourth, and oh my goodness, final stop was lunch at @pazarfoodcollective with owner and chef Attila Yilmaz for a vegetarian feast that was beyond delicious.
Maeve - thank you so much for the day.
It was a really great experience. Please also thank Mr Peter Hill - bus driver extraordinaire!
Folks - do yourselves a favour and get on board one of these food safaris. Just wonderful. Remember to eat light the day before.
