No Fresher Egg






We've gathered a few friends together for Sunday to help celebrate the launch of Hil's book "A Story Of Seven Summers". It's in the "little Champagne of Tasmania" at the end of Pipers River Road in the vineyard at Jansz. There will be bubbles of course. Maxine, Louise, Kate and Fiona are helping to cook up an afternoon tea storm for the day using suitable recipes featured in the book. Billee's Sponge Cake is starring, made from Lyndy's organic free range eggs (with thanks to her silkie Rusty who laid especially for the day). Have you ever seen a more pearly eggshell, or a sunnier yolk? Hil hopes Billee will approve on the day, while Barn is just dictating exactly how much icing sugar should get spooned into the cream for filling... You can find the recipe for yourself in "A Story Of Seven Summers" (in all good bookstores and online). We hope you'll recommend it.


 PS. If you're in Launceston on September 14th, come and meet Hil at an Author's Talk at Fullers Bookshop or in Hobart at Fullers Bookshop on September 20th.

Now, you know I will be recommending the book to anyone and everyone. I have gushed to you enough, I will save further gushing for potential book buyers. Have a wonderful launch! I will be making one of Isis's chocolate beetroot cakes from the book to celebrate Father's day.

Thank you Georgia, I hope the launch is like your lemon cake: if everything goes wrong on the day it will still turn out just right. Thanks for your wonderful support. Isis's chocolate beetroot cake featuring tomorrow too x

Just finished reading your book after hearing your interview on Radio NZ. Loved it. I too am looking to move back to my home in rural NZ for similar reasons and yearnings. Thank you; your book has given me the courage to speed up my journey. Can't wait to begin my life.

Maraea, Thank you so much for sharing your yearnings. It's wonderful to hear you are champing at the bit to feed your own heart and live your own life! Enjoy the journey, Hilary
