The change of seasons always excites me, especially at this time of the year, when the garden surprises and delights with her Spring blooms and self-sown seeds - an abundance of lush greenery and vibrancy!
I would love to invite you into my humble white-weatherboard home on the beautiful Mornington Peninsula, Victoria, and into my garden, to celebrate all that Spring delivers. As the sun warms our shoulders, we will feast upon a three-course lunch prepared by myself, which will include a few recipes from my book, Recipes in the Mail as well as a few favourites from my recipe journal collection. For an added dose of joy, we will also be guided by the lovely Sophie Bowe of With Love, Sophie (micro flower farmer and floral designer from the rolling hills of North East Victoria) who will share her passion for creating enchanting florals featuring lovingly and locally grown blooms and sustainable techniques. During this 1-hour workshop session, Sophie will teach us how to create our very own hand-tied posy using seasonal florals and foliage - from choosing stems to creating a gorgeous finishing wrap - which you will then take home, along with a little sweet treat for the road, from me.
You may come with a friend or in the company of yourself, but at the end of our time together my hope is that new friendships will be formed and that when we wave goodbye, you do so with a spring in your step and a tummy full of homely, nourishing food.
**You are more than welcome to bring along your own alcoholic beverage of choice if you so desire. There will be still and sparkling water on offer and tea or coffee will be served with dessert.
