Vegetables

June 2009

Good, cheap corn is brightening winter plates around town. Indonesian corn fritters are a street food classic that you can try at Jimbaran in Randwick. Royal Blue potatoes are still around and they’re prized by gnocchi makers. Their dryness means they need less flour to become the right consistency, so they make lighter, less stodgy dumplings. Try the gnocchi in any way it comes but particularly with gorgonzola at Il Baretto in Surry Hills. Look out for wild mushrooms on specials menus around town and grab them when you can as the season’s short. Maybe more dependable is the large portobello field variety which Beppi’s marinates and bakes with herbs.

Broadbeans and parsnips are in and Andy Bunn at Café Sopra lets them shine in simple preparations.  The menu changes all the time here, but you might get lucky with the broadbean and sage risotto or the parsnip soup with walnuts, pear and gorgonzola.
