We have sourced some fabulous black garlic recipes working with a fantastic team: Jamie Durrant (food photography and co-ordination), Megan Chalmers (chef recipe development and execution) and Richard Cornish (food editorial) - thanks to all. These will feature in the summer edition of Essentials Magazine available in all good retailers next week.
Here is a sneak peak at one terrific example: Warmed Black Garlic Bulb with goats labneh spiced saffron oil and black garlic salted flat bread. Features our luscious black garlic powder!
Great to have Garlicious Grown black garlic stocked at such a lovely store. Adelaide Fresh Fruiterers at Morphett Vale produce marvelous antipasto platters just ready for some black garlic. Get down and have a look at their wonderful store
Foodland Brighton are now stocking Garlicious Grown black garlic - was lovely that their customer approached Foodland Brighton pitching our products! Can't do better than that other than to have a keen customer encourage their local store to get on the black garlic wave! With such a great cheese counter should go well. Thanks to all
The Romeo family are key presence in quality food retailing and we are delighted to be part of their enterprise. Thanks to the team for stocking our black garlic range now at Glenelg South.
Glad to say you can now add black garlic to your cheese board for a beach picnic. Get your Garlicious Grown supplies from Foodland Henley Square, the latest South Australian retailer to stock our range - very exciting with our thanks!
Part of our growing presence in South Australia (thanks Con!) Hello to Schinella's, a family store supporting growers and producers now for many years. Thanks for including our black garlic range!
Great to have Foodland Munno Para stocking our black garlic range - look out for the "Australian black garlic" shelf stand in store next week. They offer some beautiful recipes on their website too, clearly stocking great fresh all Australian produce. Many thanks
In a recent blog we talked of the beautiful retailing we saw recently in Thailand. Foodland Frewville would give them a run for their money: a glorious store with in-store chefs providing responsive customer service in gorgeous surrounds. They now include our black garlic range - available to you early next week once delivery is complete. Our black garlic will pair well with the beautiful cheese and deli selection at Foodland Frewville. Thanks to John in the Produce department for including us.
In anticipation of joining the retailers at the High Tea Party phenomenon, we have launched a new presentation box: three 50g jars of peeled, unpeeled and powdered black garlic, ready to gift to someone cherished in your life. Gluten free, vegan friendly and gender neutral! The perfect gift to have on hand as we approach Christmas.
Just back from a Food and Beverage trade mission to Thailand - brilliantly organised by Food Innovation Australia (thanks Ron) and the Austrade team in Thailand (thanks Chanti and Stuart). We were struck by the opulence of the top end retail space - beautiful spacious stores with pretty merchandising. Lots of marble mirror and glass, with well informed staff offering tastings and expertise to their customers. Walk in cheese rooms with local and imported delicatessen offerings. In-store dining seems to be taking off: buy your steak and wine in the store, have the in-house chefs prepare to your taste with side dishes and sit to enjoy. We tried this out one evening - was a great relaxed night out!
We were accompanied by six terrific Australian food and drink businesses - all great company and terrific networking (thanks for the various distribution tips in Australia guys - all now bearing fruit!). We all attended a buyer showcase in Bangkok, meeting some 50 buyers from retail and food service sectors. We look forward to more business opportunities in Thailand. (BTW ate some fabulous Thai food! bring on the repeat visit)
