  • Lately...  a postcard from Fitzroy Falls, NSW Southern Highlands

    19th September 2017

    Hello there dear friends. I'm conscious that it's been a while since you heard from me, hence this short dispatch from Redleaf Farm at Fitzroy Falls.

  • Beef Stroganoff recipe and a little food history

    22nd August 2017

Guests could eat the dish while standing; as they mingled and discussed the state of play on topics such as Gough Whitlam's leadership, the $1.3 million spent on Jackson Pollock's squiggly artwork known as Blue Poles, the aftermath of Darwin's Cyclone Tracey, and the inaugural Gay and Lesbian Mardi Gras held in Sydney as part of International Gay Solidarity Day.As the hostess faffe [...]
