The things I find on Friday!
In full swing this Friday I find myself frantically working towards the deadline of the revised Byron Bay Cookbook. With a great selection of new restaurants opening in and around Byron Bay we will be able to feature even more recipes this time. I was shooting food in the fabulous old bakery at Newrybar’s Harvest restaurant with their head chef Brett Cameron.
Lovely chatting to people who have amazing facts to tell, this gentle older man told me that the bakery used to be a communal bakery where people from all around visited to bake their at home prepared dough into the shared oven. A great concept, and with some of my clients like the Local Organic Producers and the Farm, Byron Bay, who work and share the land together to enable great local produce to be made and prepared into organic healthy dishes.
Brett cooked the Apple with spiced custard and spiced crumble, which I tasted and am now hanging out for to try the recipe myself. Guess I have to go and visit Harvest a couple of times, before the Byron Bay Cookbook is released in September at the inaugural Sample Food Festival in Bangalow on September the 5th 2015. Make sure you come and see us there.
Being Dutch with a french food twist, my dad is such a great influence when it comes to food. From an early age the abundance of Dutch and French cheese in our household has resulted in a weakness for great cheese. So I was very pleased that Cheese-maker Paul from Nimbin Valley Dairy and the recently purchased Bangalow Cheese Co. dropped off literally kilo’s of cheese. Fabulous smelling great cheese wheels, soft cow wash, creme fraiche and bold blues to create cheese platters with. Tasting all day!
