SMH GROWERS MARKET - PYRMONT
The market population of stallholders is pretty stable at this monthly gathering. But today, the attraction is on stage again as we are meeting the legendary Stephanie Alexander, the godmother of Australian cuisine, launching a new revised and augmented edition of her most famous book "The Cook's Companion" which allegedly graces the shelves of 600,000 kitchens. SMH ran out of copies to sign before 9.30 am when I got there for the second "apparition" on stage of "Sainte Stephanie of the Kitchen"! I have been a regular at her Richmond Hill Café & Larder in Melbourne and my friend Janine S. works occasionally for her Kitchen Garden Foundation, now active in almost 800 schools around Australia, but I had never met her in person. Well this is no longer the case as of last Saturday!
KINGS CROSS ORGANIC MARKET
I have not visited this market for a while and having dropped my daughter at Bills in Surry Hills, it was an opportunity to zoom by before heading back home. It was still quiet as it was before 10.00am, but most of the usual suspects were there with the notable addition of my friends from Commissary Kitchen
and that will be the start of the French Corner!
