September 2010

Lovers of globe artichokes should act quickly as the season is short. Ormeggio at the Spit (D’Albora Marinas, The Spit, Mosman, Ph 9969 4088) features them in an entrée and a main. You can start with rigatoni, oxtail ragout, globe artichoke and pecorino then move on to the main course of risotto with king prawns and globe artichoke puree.

September is pea season and Bambini Trust turns these brilliant green beauties into a velvety soup with pancetta, topping it with seared Queensland scallops.
We’ve probably got about another month with celeriac before that knobbly root disappears until next year.  Bambini Trust combines it with capers in a salad and serves it with poached Petuna ocean trout.

Sturdy dark cavolo nero is on menus, especially those with an Italian bent, all over town. Both Fratelli Paradiso and Bambini Trust have it accompanying a veal cutlet, which is grilled in the former case and crumbed as cotolette milanese in the latter.
