Campaspe News - - LOCAL CLASSIES -

HOME-MADE, brewed, grown and crafted; some of the finest culi­nary de­lights will be on dis­play at the Sey­mour Al­ter­na­tive Farm­ing Expo.

With the expo run­ning from Fe­bru­ary 16-18 time is run­ning out to save 17 per cent on tick­ets by get­ting them on­line at www.sey­mour­expo.com.au

With bou­tique drink­ing op­tions, a Foodie Feast of var­ied cuisines and take home treats at the Farm­ers Mar­ket, this year’s expo is sure to tan­ta­lise as well as ed­u­cate and en­ter­tain.

El­freds of the Penin­sula has been long renowned for its home­made recipes, which in­clude a mild ka­sundi and In­dian tomato rel­ish, a spicy ha­banero chilli sauce, the pop­u­lar mango, ap­ple and onion Mum­bai chut­ney, and the range of 10 spices and sea­son­ings.

“Most of the pro­duce, where pos­si­ble, is bought on the Morn­ing­ton Penin­sula and cooked, bot­tled and la­belled by my­self,” busi­ness owner Fred John­son said.

With more than a decade of ex­pe­ri­ence in the kitchen, chef Si­mone Garusi has chan­nelled his pas­sion for cook­ing into his range of home­made frozen or cooked pas­tas.

He opened his Chapel St restau­rant Ital­ian Chef four years ago, but still en­joys the farm­ers’ mar­ket cir­cuit, where he sells gnoc­chi, tortelli and a Wagyu ragu sauce.

His fu­sion of choco­late and slow­cooked duck has cre­ated a unique tortelli pasta – best paired with a creamy mush­room sauce – an in­spired com­bi­na­tion that has be­come muchloved.

Also on of­fer by the Co­bram win­ery are its de­li­cious Chardon­nay, Shi­raz, Caber­net Franc, Moscato and Treb­biano and their en­tic­ing ciders.

“We have an ap­ple cider, straight pear cider, limon­cello and a pear-wine cooler, which is a bit sweet,” owner Thomas Ley said.

The Sey­mour Al­ter­na­tive Farm­ing Expo will be held from Fe­bru­ary 16-18, at Kings Park in Sey­mour.
