Related to apples, pears and plums, the quince is a member of the Rosacea (rose) family. They must be cooked before eating - they are deliciously fragrant, and once cooked, the flesh turns rosy pink and the flavour develops a sweet, piquant richness. Quince contains a naturally high level of pectin, therefore one of its main uses is as a preserve, both on its own and as an addition to other jams and chutneys. Try this Roast Quince recipe by Donna Hay - it contains cinnamon, vanilla bean and orange rind.
Made using only exceptional Australian and organic ingredients sourced from our country's finest producers. This includes organic olive oil from the Grampians region, organic roller-milled flour from New South Wales, premium Australian salt flakes and pure filtered water. We then infuse our lavosh with carefully sourced organic herbs and spices. Based in the Blue Mountains in New South Wales, Moreish Menu craft their lavosh in small batches. They are hand-roll, bake and then partially snap them into uniquely-shaped shards, allowing you to crack your own crackers into your desired size.
There are no artificial additives, preservatives, colours, fillers or numbers. Just pure food with exceptional flavours!
What makes it unique is the crunchy texture and mild flavor. That's why it can be enjoyed raw without removing the skin. Typically, this veggie has a tiny bit of a bitter taste, but the bitterness could become stronger when the plant is over-matured. As for the aroma, they have a very neutral smell when raw and develop a little earthy scent when cooked. Try this authentic Thai Eggplant & Pumpkin Green Curry recipe - this curry is such a celebration of everything from the earth.

John Kosovich Wines was established in 1922 by Johns father and his brothers, who emigrated from Croatia shortly before WWI. Originally selling sweet sherries to the Aussies and some ‘rough reds’ to the local European community, John quickly realised that these wines were not right for the Perth climate. In the 1960’s he made the bold move to begin producing dry white wine. Later he was awarded both the Order of Australia medal and the Jack Mann Medal for his contribution to the wine industry.
John Kosovich Wines remains as a boutique family owned and operated winery today. Their reputation for producing quality wines over a long period is unmatched by any other contemporary traditional Swan Valley winemaker.
This Friday we are joined by Arch Kosovich to taste a selection of both his Swan Valley and Pemberton releases.
