Friends, food and a fireplace
In November, I spent a weekend away with friends in the Colo River in NSW Australia. We are all passionate about eating good food and home cooking. This was the perfect opportunity to enjoy a few days in nature, relax and try some new recipes. I chatted to Martin from the Cooks Co-op which was located down the road from our Airbnb, and he was kind enough to organise a box for us that featured his own olive oil, vinegar and a beautiful selection of locally grown fresh produce, eggs and goats cheese. We decided to take on the challenge of using whatever we were given, and being flexible with our meals (Masterchef style!). It was the perfect opportunity to cook with foods we may not normally buy and support local. We tried to collect most of the scraps in a container to take home and compost.
Highlights of the weekend include the delicious local produce collected by Marty, the cosy fireplace, and seeing the boys spend hours washing up, only to find on our departure that there was a dishwasher hiding a cupboard.
