In September we went for a fortnight's holiday to Western Australia specifically to see the spring wildflower of the South West of the state. Having grown lots of these species in the last 30 years in the garden and in the nursery, it was exciting to see where the plants grew in their natural habitat. Now I can see why some of them struggle in our wetter and slightly colder climate.
The trip wasn't about experimenting with local foods but we did have an interesting conversation with the two men on the beach in the photo below.
Of course it wasn't the place to ask specifics so since then I have been hunting high and low for a recipe. I rang up the Jams and Preserves segment on ABC radio one Sarurday morning but could only get a recipe for pickled fish. Finally I found a book in the library called Preserving The Italian Way which has recipes for preserving fish in oil or brine. Now I just need to catch enough fish to give it a go.
