Buona Pasqua

I've been feeling decidedly Italian this week. On the drive home from Melbourne, MOTH & I were reminiscing about the best food we've eaten together over the years. One stand out was a wedding anniversary celebration at the wonderful Gennaro's (R.I.P.) at Parkside. Gennaro presented us with Roast Capretto (Baby Goat) lovingly prepared by his Mamma the sous chef. It was one of those moments in life that you want time to stand still & never move on. I've managed to find a recipe that looks mighty good from chef Scott Conant - Moist Roasted Baby Goat (Capretto) with Peas, Fingerling Potatoes and Shallots here.

As Greek Orthodox Easter co-incides with the Christian calendar this year, goat has been plentiful in the market this week. So it's on the menu here at The Hedge this Easter weekend. I have the time & the enthusiasm - what a luxury.

So Buona Pasqua to you all dear Hedgies. It's the Easter break, so go enjoy.

  6. Millie thank you for adding the interesting chunk of information about the church hall conversion to my post. I can't believe the connection that you went to Sunday school there ~ wow, that really does make proof of the statement that it is a small world! I love Parkside, I spent most of my early university days living in bluestone cottages there.

    This sounds like a fab recipe. Just have to find me some goat....Have a wonderfully Happy Easter Millie!

Without a quickening of the heart.
