Home grown

One of my pet hates is imported garlic (it's usually dry/woody/fairly flavourless and clocks up a guzillion food miles by the time it is schlepped here from Shanghai and other foreign shores). I refuse to buy it. I can never find local garlic when I stay with my sister in Brissy (this Christmas I arrived with my own supply + some fab smoked salt, lime infused olive oil... I think the bro-in-law thinks I'm slightly kooky). Imagine my joy when the delightful Julia Lea passed on this flyer from her friends in Tassy who post their hand picked harvest all around the country. What a fab foodie present to send to those without access to the good stuff (a half kilo is on its way to Brissy in the immediate future).
