We went to the farmers markets at Castle Hill yesterday. I was a little disappointed at the lack of stores selling fresh fruit and vegetables but there were loads of stores selling other amazing products.
When I checked out the mushroom store I saw these gorgeous pine mushrooms, their colour is so vividly orange. Using the recipe I spotted on Delicieux the other week I used them to make a mushroom Tarte Tatin.
It is a fabulously simple recipe with sauteed leek and garlic, mushrooms and thyme and a puff pastry case. We absolutely loved it, you could taste all the ingredients and the mushrooms were so delicious. Not to mention the beetroots and carrot I roasted up to go along side, they were perfect. They really had so much flavour.
I am totally sold on buying your fruit and vegetables this way, everything we used in this dinner - mushroom, garlic, leek, beetroot, carrot and thyme (my garden) would have been picked fresh and grown with love, you could taste the difference.
