Spring September 2010

WELCOME … from Rebekah

Hi all,

With spring on our door step, I sit here with my mother and my maternal Grandmother drinking a cup of tea (we have stopped to smell the flowers, so to speak!). We should be cracking a bottle of fizz to celebrate the team’s success at the South Australian Dairy Awards 2010 (read about the Champion Farmhouse Cheese award below!).

My maternal Grandmother often quotes different little sayings, and I wanted to record the one she often recites,

“Spring is sprung , the grass is ris. I wonder where the birdies is !”

We think it is an old poem which is often attributed to poet Cummings or even by poet Nash, but it is anonymously penned. We think it is known as "Spring in the Bronx". My maternal Great Grandmother’s always recited this poem to her daughters and she was born in 1902 in Kent, England, and we think her mother taught it to her. We like to hear Nan say it because it rings a cord with our ancestry and lets us know that spring is on the way. It also encompasses our delight in the seasonal changes, and the onset of spring calving of the jersey cows!

With that, enjoy this bumper edition of our eNews – Curds & Whey – Spring 2010, and enjoy eating Alexandrina Cheese! Because, we love making it and presenting our products to the market place.

Lastly, for another verse to add to your collection …

Spring has sprung, the grass has ris’,
I wonder where the birdie is?
There he is up in the sky,
He dropped some whitewash in my eye!!

I‘m alright, I won’t cry,
I’m just glad that jersey cows can’t fly!

~ Author Unknown ~

Spring has sprung, so hop out and dance in the sunshine!

With a cheesey grin, Rebekah McCaul

Guest Chef of the Season

Guest Chef Chris StephanAs a food consultant and stylist, Chris Stephan is an important advocate for South Australia’s food and hospitality industry. Chris is a member of the Australian Culinary Federation. Her business, Pen & Palate, works with a diverse range of international and local clients to promote products, plan menus, develop recipes and style food. Chris is driven by a passion for local produce. Chris Stephan can be contacted via email cstephan@adam.com.au.

Chris has kindly agreed to be our Guest Chef for Spring, and has shared her wisdom in the following interview with Rebekah McCaul, Marketing Manager of Alexandrina Cheese.

Please tell us about your best recent South Australian regional dining experience? Because of the nature of my work I am very fortunate to eat at many different restaurants around the state. These vary from well established to new restaurants just feeling their way in this competitive market. One of my most memorable experiences are having freshly cooked King George whiting in the park at Normanville with family on a rug, overlooking the pristine coast line, how lucky are we to live in such a beautiful place in the world.

Please tell us about your must buy Alexandrina Cheese ingredient? Oh, I have a few must buys, but the first on the list is a bag of Fresh Cheddar Curds to nibble on the way home then it is the beautiful Pure Jersey Cream and Creme Fraiche.

Please tell us about another Dairy Product you can’t live without? Feta, There are many applications for feta, it is a great stand-by to have on hand, the Marinated Fetas are a great addition to the store cupboard.

Please tell us about a time you had to cook a meal for your family in 30 minutes? Sometimes I think this is the case most days, many home makers now juggle a busy work/life schedule so often meals are pulled together in a short space of time. Everyone has a recipe repertoire that is called on for these occasions, it could be the favourite stir fry, a warm chicken salad, the family pasta dish. This is where I like to have some store cupboard/freezer items that can be drawn on, a good bolognese sauce in the freezer, tinned tomatoes and beans in the pantry, frozen home made stock for a risotto.

Please tell us about your favourite producer (other than Alexandrina Cheese!)? We are now seeing an emergence of South Australian cheese makers, I do enjoy eating and cooking with goats cheese whether it be soft or matured.

Please tell us if you could dress any way you want, what would you wear in the kitchen? The chefs uniform has been designed over the years to accommodate safety, changes in temperature and hygiene, however when not in the professional kitchen, on most occasions you would find me in the kitchen in comfortable casual wear with an apron on and a tea towel tucked in and a good sharp cook's knife in hand.

Please tell us about your biggest mistake when you were an apprentice chef? Using powder gelatin and combining the mixture into a cold mixture - disaster looming!!

Please tell us with all the focus on ‘Masterchef’, who is your favourite judge & why? I love the intense palate of Matt Preston; the humble nature of Margaret Fulton, the professional expertise of Matt Moran.

Please tell us about your last supper? I desperately hope that I never will know which supper is my last supper so every meal should be a place of sharing the love, for the food and the people that you are with. I love all things food accompanied by South Australian wine. Food does not need to be complicated, but by using the best quality produce that one can afford, prepared to showcase the ingredients flavour profile, enjoyment can be found in something as simple as a freshly picked tree-ripened apricot to a culinary master piece of molecular gastronomy!

We hope you have enjoyed reading all about Chris Stephans our Guest Chef of the Season. Thanks Chris for sharing your passion, you definitely “approach love and cooking with reckless abandon” (quote from Dalai Lama).

Hours: 10am – 4pm

Main theme:
Launch of new Cittaslow Centre in Goolwa

Brief description of activities:
A series of activities and displays showcasing Cittaslow in Action in Goolwa. Local food and wine produce, children’s activities, music and entertainment in the newly developed Signal Point building at Goolwa Wharf. Launch of Cittaslow Centre to promote Cittaslow in the Alexandrina Council region.

Cittaslow SUNDAY

1st International Day
of good slow living

Cittaslow International organizes an international event to promote universal of the "concepts" as well as "projects" which represent the reality and the idea of being Cittaslow. President, Gian Luca Marconi establishes the first world Cittaslow Day to talk and let people know about us. During this day, to be repeated every year, all Cittaslows can propose and organize one or more own local initiative in order to promote and disseminate the concepts for a collective action.

We have to respect and love the Earth, our "Mother Earth", as Carlo Petrini asserts, and this is possible if everyone realizes the Cittaslow projects, day by day, all of us, mayor of Cittaslow towns, citizens and guest travellers, entrepreneurs and policy makers – by carrying one’s contribution to make a "cleaner, better, fairer" world. The issues are the same as Cittaslow: environmental policies(energy, transport – bicycle and pedibus – , climate change, use and defence of the soil, valorisation of the landscape, biodiversity, etc.); social politics (inclusion, social responsibility, education, identity, etc.), the agriculture and the local production (Co-production, Terra Madre, Presidi Slow Food, Mercati della Terra, Comunità del Cibo, ecc. ), sustainable tourism, citizens’ awareness to be a positive counter-culture, even more necessary nowadays, when the system crisis interweave the 3 Fs (fuel-food-finance) with another crisis(relations, value and perspectives of well being), damaging the life of the future generations. "Slow future" is our perspective for the mayors, the citizens and the partners of the 130 associated Cittaslow, scattered in 20 different countries. "Slow Future" is the proposal for a "positive contamination" regarding the little Cittaslow, the big metropolis and the entire society, with positive effects on the overall ecologic imprint of the world human activities.

Commitments: The events are totally organized and financed at local level but receive the good support by Cittaslow international means. (web portal, blog, International press agency, papers, graphic designs, etc.). cultural exchanges among different people, social inclusion and solidarity projects, conferences with scientist and experts operating in some sectors concerning the Cittaslow action.

The plus: Cittaslow International will make available one logo of the manifestation in order to promote the Cittaslow SunDay, consisting in a technical code to realize banners, flags, posters, brochures, balls, notebooks and other promotional gadgets. There will be some web pages to follow the event – before, during after – with photo gallery, video clips, interviews, etc., by using all the available social networks too.

“We are extremely excited to bring
The Good Food & Wine Show to Adelaide, where South Australia’s reputation for outstanding food and wine aligns closely with the features of our show,” says Diversified Exhibitions Australia Show Director, James Laing.

“With the show already established and
successful in other Australian states, it was time to grow into another market where good food and wine is appreciated.”

Show features include:

A dedicated South Australian area showcasing the best of our food and wine. Celebrity chefs appearing live in the Celebrity Theatre with entertaining and insightful demonstrations and practical tips for home kitchens as well as book signing.

Cheese Matters Masterclasses where participants can learn and enjoy different variety cheeses paired with the perfect accompaniments and wine.

to the producer,” says Keryn.

trade, both domestic and international and
