Kapiti Kikorangi, meaning sky blue in maori. Seems like a good ingredient for a warm weather salad don't you think. In season now and super cheap if it's in your garden already.....Mint, red cabbage, walnuts, spinach, coriander, celery and we added a few apricots from last years bottled lot. Bit of lemon, honey and olive oil dressing and it's delish!

Yes it's out...2013 Wellington on a plate festival for all foodies. This year Finc & Coffee Supreme get to have some fun in a joint event... 'We eat coffee for breakfast'. Check it out online or come in and get a programme.
Cape gooseberries...coming soon to our menus. These little berries survive really well in frosty conditions, so we have plenty growing wild around our organic garden. When we include them in our diets, they help with inflammation and act as natural blood thinners. Yay for chilly sunny days Wellington.

For some the prospect of Winter looming, flu jabs, sunless days.....etc; kills all feelings of joy and happiness. For us however, it brings in a whole new season of grazing and feeding on all things tasty. And lets not forget all the tasty things we've bottled throughout the Summer and Autumn months. What better way to start our journey of tastings with these fine figs of our Dad's tree!
