Walnuts & sourdough
Have you noticed how work never feels like work when you're doing it in the company of friends? Even doing the dishes can be enjoyable if there's someone to have a good chat to while you wash!
This is the third time we've headed into the hills of this beautiful part of Gippsland, near Dargo, to help our friends harvest their annual walnut crop. Good company, fresh mountain air and delicious food and wine accompanied the good old-fashioned labour of harvesting, washing, drying, grading and bagging the nuts.
I also had a chance to bake my first ever wood-fired sourdough loaves. Ooh I love the way the hot pizza oven gives the bread that extra oomph as it rises! Yum.
