Home made Truffle Oil
– Seyen's gift carried in from Croatia opens up new vistas in every day cooking – truffle oil drizzled over boiled potatoes for instance. Bruschetta
with black Truffle Oil.
Count the ways. Truffle hummus. Great with vegetables. Used as a finishing oil on pizzas. Linguini with mushrooms
in truffle oil. Yum! Adventures ahoy!
Buddha smiles ...and

Seyen in the garden Precious hours Fresh from a 19 hour jet flight Seyen Surjanstopped by; en route to join her husband Justin in Rockhampton. Lots to be said – lots left unsaid as when good friends meet after long absences. That marvellous garden we shared in Cooroy. How fond she was of sister Gem. Now much travelled - Africa, Europe, the Americas - I wonder where next before
we meet again.Such a day.
. . . two new birds for the colletion. Plentiful in Queensland and northern Australia, this White Bellied Cukoo Shrike (above left) seems to haunt the giant Poincianas down by the river – so close to home: whereas Bourke's Parrots are birds of the outback – areas dominated by Acacia species,
particularly the mulga.
