September 2011

Starting in September we see the local asparagus coming through — choose the fattest stalks for the best flavour — and Sydney artichokes. Broad beans will continue through September (the earlier, the sweeter) and fresh beetroot continues. Peas are sweet now, horseradish is good and fresh herbs are starting to pick up.

At Pendolino (Shop 100, Level 2, The Strand Arcade, 4312 George Street, Sydney, Ph 9231 6117) Nino Zoccali has gone to Sicily for a Fritteda al Mandarino, a salad of globe artichoke, white and green asparagus, fava and borlotti beans, fresh mandarin pieces, Pecorino Romano cheese and fried bread crumbs with a mandarin olive oil dressing.

Sebastian Tyson at Bar Mattino (96 Abercrombie Street, Chippendale, Ph 9699 1442) is taking advantage of the first asparagus, serving it with fried salmon in a salad with mushrooms and snow peas.
