Thank goodness for the rain...we are greening up again and completing the lavender harvest. We have been busy getting ready for Autumn and the Festival of Floral Arts with plants in the gardens to decorate and enhance the special menu.
A comment from a friend who will be in the kitchen for this event..."where did you find all of these exciting and unusual recipes"...well! I have Maggie Beer to thank for some of them, but with a HOOOOOGE recipe book library, I had some fun sourcing some of the new recipes (Yes! there is always an excuse to buy ONE more recipe book!!!!)
Have been frantic making product from our potage garden as well as neighbours fruit...peaches, apples, plums, tomatoes etc. and the zucchinis have nearly beaten me....luckily, I can feed the local with zucchini pie.
