What’s GREAT at the Market this Week?
This time last Kerry and Paul Wilson and their staff at Nimbin Valley Dairy were celebrating their WIN for their Sainte Billie, in the 2018 Delicious Produce Awards.
Made by artisan cheesemaker and co-owner of the business Paul – his Sainte Billie is a goat’s cheese inspired by the surface ripened lactic goat cheeses made in a similar style to Pelardon and Crottin. These are popular classic southern French goat cheeses.
This award-winning cheese is still available at their stall at the market so if you haven’t tried it then visit Sylvia at the NVD stall check it out this week. Eaten as is with crackers and wine or as part of a salad it is a beautiful cheese.
Nudgel Nuts macadamia’s are back this week. Are you as excited as I am? Ian will have his full range as the processing – chocolate coating and honey roasting has been produced some for this week’s market. YUMMO!
