Red Ants Nest

The soil is red and the ants are red in the Red Centre of Australia.
********************************************
A la cuisine hier: Bavette (a thin steak cut along the grain), flash fried and served with diced homegrown potatoes fried in duck fat and homegrown caramelised onions made into a sort of fusion oriental gravy.

Pears poached in lightly spiced syrup. The pears are organic and were a gift from the world famous gardens of Villandry. The syrup, flavoured with vanilla, allspice, black pepper, cardamon, lime and star anise has been filtered and set aside to make sorbet.

  1. That sounds like a good ribsticking meal! We got 43kg of Stemster potatoes from 40 seed spuds out of a 3kg bag and yours came from that bag too. And there were some left over. Not a bad yield!
