The Little Cellar Rat finds toasted almond flakes are so very handy for all sorts of things:  sprinkling on green beans that you’ve caramelised in the pan with some garlic, scrunching over a tray of oven roasted vegetables along with some smoky paprika and dukkah or topping off a scoop of vanilla ice-cream that you’ve blessed with some CAFE COFFEE LIQUEUR or gooey chocolate topping.

squisito!!

CELLAR DOOR OPEN TODAY TUES 12TH JAN 12 NOON -4PM

ciao tutti!!  Sun’s out this morning and it looks like a glorious day ahead.

Cellar Door open today TUES 12th Jan 12 noon -4pm.

Food and wine discussion with guests yesterday turned (as it does ) to cheese and in particular to RICOTTA.   Here’s the photo of the BAKED RICOTTA I promised.

It’s as simple as draining the cheese from the basket it comes in (if you buy a whole one) but you can do the same with a slab, turning it onto a pyrex dish and baking like a cake.

buona cucina!

After 2 years of extremely dry condition here on the Hill, the return of la Nina weather patterns has brought some rain to the district. It’s not enough to fill dams and get creeks running agin, but the green covering on the formerly bare hills and growth spurt for everything in the garden lift the spirits.

Visitors to our little country village, make sure you take a detour or two to feast your eyes on the changes in agricultural pursuits as cane is replaced by tree crops, mainly avocado and especially our Australian nut, the Macadamia.

ciao tutti!

It’s  rainy and the temperature certainly has taken a bit of a nose dive.

Isn’t  it good to take a reprieve from that wicked heat!

Saturday and that means the chance for a read…. the Weekend Newspaper, a newly found magazine (FRANKIE??) or a page-turner of a novel.  Nothing beats it on a drizzle-grizzle day like today.

Happy Saturday, Happy Reading …. after you’ve taken a trip out to HILL OF PROMISE CELLAR DOOR OF COURSE!
