It’s market day every Saturday in Subiaco.
J and I were up early this weekend, and headed over to Subi armed with our empty shopping bags and with empty bellies. All in the name of food blog research, of course!
We did a quick lap of the treats on offer – J bought a Passionfruit and Creme Patissiere filled croissant. I only had eyes for the cinnamon bun on offer from Spirals Cinnamon Buns. Pictured above my cinnamon bun was a delightfully light version of this tuck-shop classic. I thought the ratio of cinnamon-sugar filling to dough from Spirals’ version was ideal. Less chomping through bread to get to the good bits! In fact, this cinnamon bun was less bready – I’d say it was something crossed between a yeasted doughnut dough and a scone. Substantial yet light, all at the same time.
We found some great fresh produce – potatoes, zucchini, parsnips, fennel, rhubarb, capsicum and a butternut pumpkin, as well as fresh sourdough, free range eggs, and fresh yoghurt.
The yoghurt came from Sunnydale Dairy – which I noticed from the address is the former site of the Casa Dairy (their old premises in Nedlands). The eggs were from the same stall.
There was also bottles (glass bottles!) of fresh milk available from this stall. I haven’t sampled the yoghurt yet, but I think it’ll be perfect for breakfast tomorrow :)
We also sampled and purchased some Chorizo sausages made by Spencers Brook Farm. They raise Berkshire pigs free of all the nasty bits (these little piggies are free range, organic fed and basically well loved) and also keep them out of their cured meat products (sodium nitrate free).
So with all the lovely fresh produce we scored it’s been a bit of a cooking-in weekend.
More updates to come!
