Finding Victoria’s tastiest food
Meet Sarah Robins, food advocate. The Kiwi-born Melburnian (right) travels Victoria searching for our best and freshest sources of fresh produce – all in a day’s work (hardship posting, right?).
Sarah is will release a stunning new book about her travels later this month, recounting her visits to farmers’ markets, orchards, heirloom veggie growers, cellar doors, rare breed meat producers, farm gates, pick-your-own farms and more (like the Angelica Organic Farm garlic, above). The book will also feature more than 80 seasonal recipes by top chefs and home cooks.
For a sneaky taste of Sarah’s adventures, Five of the Best has her personal top five local foods in season, all found at local farmers’ markets.
And on the subject of fabulous food….
South Yarra’s Paris to Provence festival returns to Como House this weekend, giving francophiles a tres-bon excuse to eat their body weight in charcuterie and crepes. The pop-up village opens Friday night, with cooking demonstrations from Melbourne’s hottest French chefs.

And have a great day.
