Foraged Fair breakfast. Had the good fortune to happen on an wildly unkempt peach tree in the neighborhood as we cruised the back alleys looking for overhang. Usually people around here cover their peaches in net to keep both urban grafters and birds at bay but this one was free!!! I loaded up the bottom of the pram while also being respectful and leaving a good ten or so for the owners and other would be foragers. Unbelievably good, as were the nectarines i'd picked up under similar circumstances a few days earlier. Also tried out rice syrup as a pourable alternative to honey. Perfect viscosity, but a little like pouring liquid malt on your breakfast, SHUDDER. Definitely a cooking only proposition.
MENU: mountain muesli with fresh raspberries, bio dynamic yoghurt, brown rice syrup, poached foraged peaches and nectarines.
