Bring on a rainbow because rain is on the way - that's the forecast!  We can only hope it's true and our farmers will get some relief from this harsh drought. It's great to see communities right across Australia rally with some trucking hay all the way...

My Sammy thinks I'm a bit corny at times so this week I've taken that literally and come up with this tasty corn chowder to impress her. I think I've really turned a corner with this dish! It's great to see this sweet, juicy vegetable arriving at the...

I love this dish! I call it my Italian Ratatouille which may not impress the French chefs of Sydney who would call it their own and fair enough but there's a wonderful Italian gusto in the flavour! We have organic Eggplants in store today too if they take...

A win at last! Finally we have sent the Cane Toads packing! It's true we may not be so fond of QLD's footy exports but their fruit crops are still giving us their best right now. Strawberries from Caboolture are at their peak so add a...
