Nick Haddow at Food & Words

Milk. Made. CVR copy

Milk. Made (Hardie Grant Books), by Bruny Island Cheese Company’s Nick Haddow delivers a lot of bang for your buck. Much like his cheese, this book is truly individual. This is, after all, the guy who offers his raw milk cheese C2 for adoption.
With little pomp and plenty of ceremony Nick walks the reader through the world of cheese and it’s a serious, at times sentimental, and impassioned stroll. The book is not designed to be encyclopaedic; it’s there to make better cheese buyers and eaters of us all and the recipes, beautifully photographed by Alan Benson, like Nick’s carefully crafted prose, offer more than enough incentive for the reader to seek out and enjoy standout Australian-made and international cheeses.
Nick is on the Food & Words program along with…

Who to invite in 2014?

posted 7 January 2014

It was held back in October, but the day lives on in memory and tasks still to be tackled as the year rolls over into 2014 and planning for this year’s Food & Words begin. Who to invite, that’s the big question. Any ideas?

And then, of course, there is a multitude of tasks to get started on. Too tedious by half. But, like anything, once you start the enjoyment comes. It’s the getting started that is the challenge.
I can retire gracefully from the task today and without guilt as I’m moving house and have boxes to pack. Will resume thinking about the festival when that’s all done and dusted. (Could I have come up with any more cliches, I ask?)
