Welcome to my In My Kitchen (IMK) post for April. This fun series is hosted by the lovely Celia of Fig Jam and Lime Cordial blog fame, and is loads of fun. Pop over to her blog and check out all the lovely IMK posts from kitchens all over the world. It takes me about a month to get through them all!
My post this month has a real local theme going. Local in that everything is from Canberra and the surrounding district.
Firstly... I have locally made Little Monster Chocolate, made using orgainic fairtrade chocolate. It comes in a small range of flavours, and I'm gonna take my time devouring these...
Raspberry jam, from Montrose Berry Farm, from Sutton Forest.
A mug that I have been eyeing for months, and finally spoilt myself. For those from Canberra, or who have spent any time here, you would recognize the iconic bus shelter. I think this mug is just fabulous! Its the brainchild of Trevor Dickinson.
Homegrown beetroot from my own veg patch, paired with a salad of the beetroot leaves, mixed greens, couscous, dates, pecans and pork tenderloin pieces.
The Fix Juice. This is the 'vital energy' juice. I'm not doing a juice cleanse, but wanted to try one.
Lastly, and not quite all local, but it was cooked in my kitchen. A rather wonky, but darn tasty bacon, leek and ricotta tart.
Thanks for stopping by. I'd love to hear from you. Feel free to drop me a comment. Have a great day! cheers, Kirsty
