Like Minded Friends, Luddites and Artisans…..

argy barbieIn an age when speed and convenience are the mantras we are expected to  live by, there is a growing movement back to the real and unrefined rather than the glossy, mechanized and over packaged.

Despite the best efforts of  spin doctors and marketing gurus,  the world is full of people that share my passion  for authentic food culture  rather than embracing the corporate world of supermarkets and fast food.

Below are  links to  individuals and organizations that share a common ethos putting  tradition, sustainability and passion first. Some are personal friends, some I have  worked with in the past, others I simply admire from afar.

  1. I would love Ballycroft Vineyard and Cellars to be a food/wine producer friend. Hopefully our winery vege garden will be up and running to its full potential by springtime and we can offer our customers the opportunity to pick and purchase fresh veges and fruit from the Ballycroft garden when they visit.

  2. Hello Mark, are you any closer to doing your own spices? Sue at the Spicy Sticky Rice course October (Broome)
