In my kitchen this month are some superb figs purchased from Guiseppe and Magdalena di Cerbo, who travel to Canberra from Berri every Saturday to sell their fresh produce. Peter and I enjoy eating them fresh from the hand, as they are so good, they never seem to last long enough to make it into my cooking!
Also in my kitchen are heirloom tomatoes from Dominic and Mareeta Torcaso, who sell produce from their property at Myrtleford in Victoria at the Capital Region Farmer's Markets. Dominic told me this variety of tomatoes were originally grown by his father. They taste the way tomatoes should... and they really are that bright colour (I haven't fiddled with the photo!).

My friends and fellow bloggers, Celia (Fig Jam and Lime Cordial) and Rachel (The Food Sage), had a fun time baking sour dough recently. Rachel has written about it here.
In My Kitchen is a series hosted by my friend and fellow cook and food blogger, Celia. Food bloggers from around the world share the good things in their kitchen each month. Not only is it fun, the project gives us an interesting perspective on seasonal produce, ingredients, cooking styles, kitchen gadgets and knick-knacks across the globe. Make sure you pop in and say hello. Now tell me, what's fresh and cooking in your kitchen this month?
