Local loveliness

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.

I have recently discovered one lady who champions quality produce in our region. Sophie is a food writer and has a blog called Local is Lovely. Her blog is a visual feast that celebrates the very best food in our region, including her family's own venison.

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!
