The other morning I was up at 5, which is a very unusual occurrence for me, I’m more of a night owl. I had to be in the city to photograph a busy kitchen mid prep. It was only a half day job so was finished by 10am, pretty early to be finished a days work (a girl can dream!). I thought I would head to the Queen Victoria Markets that are located in the City of Melbourne, before heading back to the studio to work on the shots. They have a abundant supply of fish mongers, butchers, deli’s, veggie suppliers, basically everything a girl could want. I brought a beautiful rack of lamb for only $10, which I thought was pretty good. I also brought a mixture of veggies, 2 huge punnets of strawberries and a couple of bunches of rhubarb.
So for dinner I’m having a rack of lamb with a almond and parsley crust, served on potato mash with a side of roast tomatoes and lashings of gravy. Followed by rhubarb and strawberry crumble. What a feast!!! There is nothing like cooking with fresh ingredients that you have brought from a market rather than pre-packaged supermarket food.
This next recipe was inspired by a good friend Maree, she told me that this is one of her favourite flavour combos for a crumble that she makes all the time. I tend to stick to the old apple crumble so thought I would give strawberry and rhubarb ago.
