Twilight Market

Held at the Clare Valley Showgrounds on Friday evening, from 5 to 9 pm is the market to launch the 30th Clare Valley Gourmet Weekend. We’ll be there serving hot soup and crusty bread from Artisan’s Table. Lou’s Abundance Clare Valley will take care of your sweet tooth with delicious cakes…quandong cheescake, panforte, banofee tart and Four Leaf polenta and orange cake. Yum! Celebrity chef Simon Bryant from The Cook & The Chef will be there, along with Clare Valley winemakers and local producers, not to mention live music and children’s activities.

North Clare Home Game

Fabulous Freekeh

Freekeh

 

Last month, Lou’s vegetable with freekeh salad was a huge hit for lunch in our restaurant.

Our friends on Facebook made these comments:

“I love Freekah!” Jodie Polkinghorne

“Yum, looks like I will have to come and try!” Pat Flood

“Was so good I couldn’t get it (sold out!!) despite having kept my eyes peeled for weeks for this very thing…..” Katherine Nugent

Freekeh, a roasted green wheat, was the star of the dish. Considered a superfood by some, freekeh is low GI and full of fibre. Not to mention yummy!

We now have packets of Freekeh in stock, so you can create delicious and healthy meals at home. Priced at $7.95 per packet, come in and check it out.
