Let's get cooking!

Today marks the 51st anniversary of Earth Day, what began as a student protest movement in the 1970s is now the largest secular observance in the world. The annual event is a time to contemplate the future of the planet and ask what we’re doing to help preserve it for future generations. ‘Together, We Can Restore Our Earth’ is this year’s official Earth Day theme.
One of the easiest ways we can be good citizens of the earth is to eat locally grown, in season produce wherever possible. By eating locally, we can significantly reduce our carbon footprint as the food has less distance to travel before it reaches our plate. Below you’ll find a list of some of our favourite fruit and veg that are currently in season here in Australia.

Now for Something Sweet

Looking for a dairy free lemon tart?
 Here it is.

This Lemon Tart is gorgeous and glossy and is a great one to make right now, while lemons are at their peak. And even better If you're lucky enough to have your own lemon tree (or know someone who does).

This cracker of a recipe comes from Melbourne kosher caterer @naomialthaus. One of the greatest challenges if you keep kosher (and therefore don’t mix dairy foods with meat) is making desserts that can be eaten with a ‘meat’ meal. Just as an example, if you make roast beef for your main course, your desserts can’t be made with butter or cream or cheese. It’s quite a challenge! So, when Naomi gave us this recipe some years ago, we were excited to share it. The beauty of the filling is that it is already dairy free, and Naomi makes her pastry with margarine instead of butter and it works really well. We will always go back to butter but we’ve tried it with marg (we used Nuttelex) and it was pretty great!

The recipe is in our second book The Feast Goes On, and it is a winner. Those of us who do not keep kosher will continue to make the pastry using butter, and for those who do, margarine is a great option.

Time to get juicing!
