I LOVE Đồ Chua.  Đồ Chua is a Vietnamese pickle made from carrots and daikon radish (or just carrots -- as I prefer).  I like mine finely julienned, with little or no sugar and on the soft side --…Continue

Oh, I have been cooking for Graham, He now has some very nice Moroccan Lamb Shanks (Tagine) in the freezer too. They were just beautiful. I will post a recipe of those and the Moroccan Tomato Sauce, when I get a minute..

WOW, when you said you were going to do a little cooking before you went into hospital, I though some meals for Graham.  Your certainly are a productive lady.  I must get into this fermentation.

Hi Everyone, I have been a bit quiet lately but I have a few things I have to get done before I go in for my Operation. So have been making some Riesling Radishes, Beetroot and Turnip Pickles, Strawberry Jewels (Jam with Whole Strawberries) and Moroccan Tomato Sauce (that I will use to cook some Lamb Shanks in tonight).

I have also got to get my Blood Oranges off the bush and Make some Blood Oranges in Minted Syrup and Some Syrup to use in Cordials, (this one is not as red as I would have liked but the ones facing the sun have more of a red blush on the outside of the fruit, but it smell lovely and there is lots of juice). My Bergamot Oranges are ready and smelling beautiful, although someone has picked 3 off the bush. I still have enough to make a syrup for cordial. I might not be allowed in the garden but at least I can still find my way around the kitchen.

Rubbish Andy, I am just lucky I have a lady who keeps an eye out at the Rocklea Markets for me and surprises me with a box or 2 of something now and again. Just happens that this is a good time of year for some good produce...

About this site

Welcome to Brisbane Local Food (BLF)!

This site was created by Scarlett Patrick, to build capacity in the Brisbane  community for growing, buying, and living sustainably. Six years on, BLF is an important hub to promote, discuss, share and learn about local food growing, production, gardens, services and activities happening in our part of the world.

This site exists for you - make the most if it!

BLF is motivated by passion, not profit. We thank all volunteers and members who make this an active and inspiring space to be, as well as those individuals, organisations and groups working to make the future greener.


What is local?
The closer the better - but regional and global activities are important too.

Why local?
To reduce food miles, increase food freshness & security, improve social outcomes and reduce the unused outputs of our living environments - like stormwater and green waste.

Brisbane is a sub-tropical city in Queensland, Australia.
