But how is it all done Come along to this very special masterclass to be held during our Harvest Festival at Heronswood, in which renowned author Pietro Demaio will show you how - using recipes from his sell-out book Preserving The Italian Way.
Pietro will show you how your summer glut can easily be converted into a well stocked pantry full of delicious home made pickles, preserves and sauces and he ll have you enjoying your summer produce well out of season.
Pietro is obsessed with preserving the traditional Italian foods.
He is equally obsessed with preserving a tradition of eating, friendship and culture that is fast disappearing slow food.
During this engaging and enjoyable workshop you will also have a chance to taste some delicious preserved products with a glass of Italian wine.
This will be an afternoon to remember Sunday 16th March 2014 1pm 3.30pm 60 per person, bookings 5984 7900, code EHM16 One of the bonuses of living where we do is the abundance of really fresh food and the proliferation of talented people who take it from paddock to plate.
Fresh farm and orchard produce is always available from local farms markets.
Every weekend on the Peninsula, you can find food craft markets which support our local farmers artistic talent.
There s nothing better than buying your food direct from the grower or purchasing craft items straight from the unique individual who was inspired to create it.
Spending a leisurely Saturday or Sunday morning wandering around these markets is the perfect way to wind down after a busy week and restock your cupboards at the same time.
Craft Markets Australia run some fantastic markets and our most renowned one in Red Hill makes its monthly return in September.
Held on the first Saturday of every month, this market is celebrating its 39th year.
A recent addition to the calendar is The Portsea Market which is planned for Sunday November 24th.
Situated on the beautiful beach area at Point Nepean Quarantine Station, locally made food and craft items are offered and this is a wonderful place for some quality Christmas shopping.
Farmer s markets offer an amazing selection of fresh local produce and our two most popular are held each month on the second Saturday in Mornington and fourth Sunday in Mt Eliza.
These accredited markets showcase a range of produce from the Peninsula and regional Victoria and friendly stallholders are always happy to chat about their produce.
In Balnarring, the Emu Plains market returns in October on the third Saturday each month and promotes the region in a stunning rural setting.
Held at the historic Emu Plains Reserve, this fabulous market has gourmet food and craft items plus lots to keep the kids entertained.
So why not think about changing your shopping habits over the next few months Salad leaves that have been picked the previous day, eggs that have been laid that week and artisan breads baked fresh for the market are just some of the reasons to shop this way.
And if you weave a market into your weekly routine, you ll be saving food miles, saving money and supporting our local farmers and artists at the same time Boneo Market celebrating 34 years, is in the heart of the Peninsula s farming area and offers the best of local produce, kitchen delights, innovative arts crafts, and baby animals to delight young and old.
