LOCAL IS LOVELY- BOOK REVIEW BY SUSAN AMBLER
14th April, 2016

 Local is lovely: For the love of fresh seasonal food, nice farmers and their produce by Sophie Hansen.

This is a lovely book, true to its title. It is also very local to us in the Blue Mountains, and some of the farmers and producers mentioned in the book sell their produce at the Food Co-op. I loved the way that the book is set up seasonally. The four sections, Spring, Summer, Autumn and Winter are divided into further sections with an item of produce, recipes for savoury and sweet ways to use the produce, and then a story about their local producer.

EMBRACING AUTUMN FOODS
10th March, 2016

Sallyanne Pisk, nutritionist and accredited practising dietitian, gardener and author of ‘Eating for You”, is at the Blue Mountains Food Co-operative on the first Wednesday of each month to answer food and nutrition questions. This month she shares her suggestions for eating well in autumn.

SALL

Eating with the seasons aligns with the Eastern approach to health and wellbeing, as well as the philosophy of the Blue Mountains Food Co-operative. Eastern medicine suggests that we will more easily meet our health requirements in autumn by eating foods that have grown in the same environment as us. The Eastern approach is based on our connection with our environment.

THAT WAS A SAUERKRAUT WORKSHOP!
17th February, 2016

workshop4
Thanks to our friends at Slow Food Blue Mountains, summer has been brimming with fine feasting and fantastically foodie learning opportunities that make up the Summer Harvest Festival. The last Sunday in January Blue Mountains Food Co-op’s new addition to the festival filled the Soul Food Kitchen at the Uniting Church with members keen to join the fermenting revolution. In this series of workshops we’ve been exploring taste sensations and combinations that we can easily make at home. What a great way to access the many benefits of probiotic foods.

Chop a little, pound a little, salt a little and now we really get those cabbage juices flowing!

BACK TO SCHOOL (OR WORK) WITH NUTRITIOUS AND DELICIOUS LUNCHBOXES….
17th February, 2016

By Danielle O’Donoghue

Busy, active kids (and adults) need a healthy, nutrition packed, lunch to keep their energy levels high and help them focus and concentrate into the afternoon hours before home time. Many of us have the best intentions but often fall into ruts or dependence on easy packaged foods and snacks when our schedules fill up and our motivation fades. The more you can do from scratch the better. Packaged and processed foods are minefields of refined sugars and salts, unhealthy refined vegetable oils, like canola, and flavours, preservatives and other nasties that we’d all rather our children didn’t eat. Here are some ideas to inspire. Use or change them to work for you and your child/ren…

ROBIN'S SEEDLINGS

‘With the wet and humid weather we have experienced in the upper mountains this summer, my newly germinated seedlings have been very susceptible to “Damping off”. I have lost about 5 trays of seedlings over the last 3 or 4 weeks.  Seedling “Damping Off” is when the root of the newly germinated seedling collapses. The trick is, at this stage of the young plant’s life, to provide a steady clean flow of air.’
