June

The Slowpoke: GUIDE TO OLIVE OIL A bottle of olive oil is an essential in many a kitchen. With Australia’s olive harvest season well underway, this year’s fresh oils are on their way too. And given there’s a world of difference between a good (and local) olive oil and a bad one, queen of all things Aussie produce, Maggie Beer is here to teach us how to choose, care for and use olive oil.

Honey-roasted pumpkin + borlotti bean salad

June

The Slowpoke: HONEY-ROASTED PUMPKIN + BORLOTTI BEAN SALAD With pumpkins in abundance it’s a great time to tuck into a warm salad of them roasted with ethical and locally sourced honey. Hearten it up further with a good serve of beans and hazelnuts. This recipe is a great one from Chrissy Freer’s new book on the power of legumes, Superlegumes.

HOW TO: GROW GARLIC

April

The Slowpoke: PLANTING GARLIC Not one for the impatient among us, garlic is however a relatively easy crop to grow. Left in the ground (or pot) for around eight months, with a little water and good soil you’ll have your own supply of chemical-free homegrown garlic by the time late spring rolls around. And now’s the time to plant.

GAZPACHO

March

The Slowpoke: GAZPACHO Following a simple and envious recipe last week for using up the end of summer harvest in a Sicilian eggplant caponata, Mickey Robertson from Glenmore House with another seasonal goodie. A tried and trusted tomato gazpacho that’s as easy as chop and blend. Served up with a piece of fresh sourdough, that’s a weeknight dinner sorted in no time.
