Vegetables

March 2010

It’s not a long season, but now’s the time to order okra when you see it. It’s popular throughout the Middle East and the Subcontinent, and gets the spicy treatment at Qmin. There, they stirfry it with cumin and onions. Over at South, baby ones are fried and served with aioli as a starter, and they’re great.

Corn is abundant, cheap and as popular as ever in fritter form on breakfast menus around town. One of the first to serve them was Bills and they’re still a favourite at the three locations (433 Liverpool St, Darlinghurst, Ph 9360 9631, 359 Crown St, Surry Hills, Ph 9360 4762, Queen’s Court, 118 Queen St, Woollahra, Ph 9328 7997).

Tomato season got off to a slow start this year, which has delayed the end of season as well. We’re into March and we’re now seeing the last of the good fruit going cheap at the market. Peter Kuruvita uses a clear juice collected from chopped tomatoes hung in muslin as a dressing for oysters at his upmarket eatery, Flying Fish.
