Always a monthly Welcome guest on Community Kitchen – Sarah Heath brings such experience to the radio. Running a busy edible herb and flower farmlet from her property at Burpengary, Sarah not only supplies local restaurants and fruit shops with her product but has ventured out of the local Moreton Bay and spread her wings to eatery all over. Of course we had to mention the weather and Sarah suggested trimming and pruning those water logged herbs especially sage, thyme and rosemary. Seedlings may not survive the bigger rains so try and protect them the best you can. Broadcasting seed is a great suggestion for this time and I have noticed that my zinnia flowers have self sown into the garden. I didn’t realize that zinnias are an edible flower but Sarah did mention that the taste is an acquired one. And not forgetting it was International Coriander Day yesterday, another acquired taste, one that I love but some people go so far as to make it the ‘h’ word, but we think there is enough hate in the world so lets leave the poor coriander plant to those who enjoy.

Pancakes and more pancakes – our recipes for this week so venture to the RECIPE page to follow the shared recipes…………..

Fluffy Ricotta , Rick Steins buckwheat pancakes with mushrooms and eggs and a little batter picked up from a garage in France where you eat while waiting for your car to be serviced or filled which sounds like a great idea.

Also joining us today from North Lakes, Marney Perna brings Soroptimist International to the studio. This group is hosting a Complimentary High Tea to celebrate International Womens Day on Sunday  8th March @ North Lakes Sports Club from 3 – 6 pm. In true form Community Kitchen invited the group to chat about the Recipes from our Kitchen Table book to be launched on that day. It was a pleasure speaking with Marney and for those wanting to be involved with this group please email
