As you might have noticed, we're a little keen on coming up with great new sausage flavour combinations. This month we've been working with Green Beacon Brewery in Teneriffe to come up with this great combo using their 3 Bolt Pale Ale.
We hope you guys like them as mush as we do.

Have you noticed our lovely new wine racks in the shop? After a lot of (not so fun) paperwork, we now have a licence to sell Clovely Estate wines. We're really excited by the opportunity to support another local Queensland business and help change that 'out of date' perception that Queensland doesn't make good wine.
Earlier this week we held a staff wine tasting & food matching session with Mr Peter Marchant. Wines were paired with several different flavours & meat dishes and we found some winning combinations. It was a great night. As well as being informative, it was also great to be able to socialise together over great food and wine. It's definitely something we're planning to do more often.

with loads of garlic and rosemary...
I love cooking lamb shoulder slowly on the bone like this. The flavour is like nothing else and the way the soft, rich meat falls from the bone gets me every time. The sauce in this recipe is the perfect accompaniment too. It's got a little zing from the capers and red wine vinegar and then a little freshness from the mint - lamb's best friend.
I substitute button squash or sometimes broccoli for the swede in the smashed veg and then for the greens, I'll cook up whatever is looking good at the fruit & veg shop. Curly kale is a bit of a favourite of mine at the moment and brussel sprouts are really good right now too. Bon Appetit!
