Fabulous 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.

Clare wild for Make-A-Wish

Wild Saffron hosted a fantastic Girls Night Out on Monday, August 27 to raise money for Make-A-Wish, a charity organisation that grants wishes to seriously ill children and their families.

Kath Cooper, who will run in the City t0 Bay fun run in September, organised the night in memory of Clare boy Kai Palmer, who sadly passed away a little more than a year ago. Kai and his family went to SeaWorld thanks to Make-A-Wish, a family holiday that the Palmers will always treasure.

The night was a great chance for locals to catch up and also see presentations from Thermomix and Chefs Toolbox, as well as view the latest products from Mango Ink and Mickelloo Designs.

See some photos of the night on Facebook.
