On Saturday mornings, regional produce markets pop up in country towns across Australia. We visited ours on the weekend.
It is a colourful snapshot of what is in season; produce freshly picked and sold by the growers direct to the public. As a farm-raised girl, I love to chat with the farmers, and tease them into divulging their secrets for growing such quality produce.
Sophie's blog is a genuine source of inspiration for me on the days when I'm stuck for something interesting to cook, or when I need to pull something a bit special out of the bag.
She generously posts many seasonal produce recipes, and a brilliant Friday List of foodie 'must-reads'.
So when my fruit bowl was spilling over with late summer peaches, it seemed inevitable that they should be transformed into Sophie's peach & custard shortcake. A very lovely way to end a stunning central west Autumn Saturday!
