A couple of Friday’s ago I drove over to the Beaches Markets. Held in Warriewood every Friday morning, they are brimming with fresh produce. I had wanted to go there for two reasons. First I had placed an order with Silvia at the Lost & Found Department, and opted to collect my order at the markets. This was mostly so I could look at all of Silvia’s wonderful wares in person! I also wanted to get some fresh rhubarb so I could re-create the rhubarb galettes made by Beth Kirby at the Slow Living Workshop the previous weekend.
I came away from my morning at the markets with my order from the Lost & Found Department, plus some of Silvia’s famous muesli, some bagels from Brooklyn Boy Bagels, some fresh rhubarb and mixed baby tomatoes.
On the way home I stopped off at the Antique and General Store in North Narrabeen. I have been visiting this shop (sometimes unwillingly) for a good twenty years now. My Mum loves antiques and this is a favourite shop of hers. I remember going there when I was little, and sometimes making out that I hated it, when actually I had begun to quite like looking at the old wares and antiques.
I re-created Beth’s rhubarb galette once I got home, using this recipe from her website. I soaked the rhubarb in sugar and a little rosewater. I added rosewater, as I like how it adds a sweetness to the otherwise earthy taste of the rhubarb. It is nice served soon after removing from the oven with some double cream.
