It’s loosely based on the traditional Japanese Izakaya eating house which serves sake with little nibbles.
Then a layer of some wonderfully rich, aged cow manure from the Gundooee Organics Wagyu beef farm near Mudgee that my mate Rob Lennon dropped around on the weekend.
The seeded potatoes are lowered in and then topped with some blood and bone and about ten cenitmetres of potting mix. As their green shoots appear I’ll keep topping up the bag with more straw and manure and… viola! in three months’ time it will be time to dig up my crop!
4 potatoes, halved
We’re both big fans of Jansz sparkling. The Jansz winery is nestled in the hills just beyond the Tamar Valley near the north-east coast of Tasmania. The climate and grey clay soil are remarkably similar to the Champagne region of France which was why Louis Roderer together with the Hill-Smith family established vineyards here in 1998. We tried the vintage Cuvee 2005 (yum) and the Premium rose (refreshing)
Luckily we don’t have to brave the elements for too long. Breakfast is being served next door at silt at seaport restaurant.
We’re in Launceston this weekend for my 25th Anniversary High School Reunion.
I know. Do any other three words in the English language evoke as much dread and angst as HIGH SCHOOL REUNION?
I’ve bribed Mark to come along with me promising him great Tamar Valley wines and fresh organic Tassy ingredients.
