  • Baking with Poh

    Poh

    Poh joins us in the Market Kitchen on 10 December at 11am. She'll have signed copies of her book available for sale on the day. 

    Poh first fell in love with food by learning to bake as a nine year old - she remembers vividly her mum showing her the art of folding flour into her first sponge cake 'just like so' and the skill in lining a tin meticulously. Now, years after Poh's meteoric rise to fame through MasterChef, and hosting her own television shows, Poh's Kitchen and Poh & Co, she returns to her roots, with wooden spoon and mixing bowl in hand. Poh owns and runs Adelaide destination cafe and bakery Jamface, with her bestie, Sarah. She describes the Jamface baking philosophy as the love child between a Parisian patisserie and the Country Women's Association. Here, she shares recipes for 100 of her favourite baked delights.

    This beautiful book will be the perfect gift for baking enthusiasts this Christmas.

    You can order the book online here

  • In Season - Peaches

     

     


  • Peaches

    Peaches 

    Peaches have a fuzzy, velvety skin, which varies on the spectrum between red and pale yellow. The interior flesh can also vary between white, yellow and red. As with most stone fruits, peaches can either have a freestone, one which easily comes away from the flesh, or a clingstone, one which is more difficult to remove.

    Peaches are in season In South Australia between December and April. Some well-known peach varieties are ‘Spring Lady’, ‘Sweet Scarlet’, ‘Red Jenni’, ‘Desert Red’ and ‘Flamecrest’. When selecting peaches, look for those that are firm and plump with a good colouring. Avoid any that are green, hard and do not yield to gentle pressure.

    South Australia is enjoying bumper crops of stone fruit this summer, meaning an abundance of fresh peaches at the local farmers’ markets.  You'll find peaches at Eko Fruits, Pavlos Fruits, Cooinda, B & A Andonopoulos.
