Pyrmont Growers' Market: the produce


Cultural cringe: maybe! But, this market stacked up pretty good against Rue Moufftard and Uzes. Yeah, yeah I know: how dare I compare something brash and Australian with something 'spisticated and elegantly French. So here's a go: there are four images from the Pyrmont Market in this post and four images from either Moufftard or Uzes. Pick 'em!


Well ... maybe the signs are a bit of a give-a-way ... Hell, I'm gonna get me an old lady's shopping trolley: a red 'un ... and a beret ... a thin cigar ... young fella ...

Simply had to link ;-)
The 35 € pic might be Uzes ...

Julie said...

Yep the wild mushrooms were Uzes ... E35 not cheap eh?

Martina said...

... yeah, I should go on a mushroom foray ... definitely very lucrative. Are these porcini?

Fiona said...

Mouth-watering (visually and literally!).

Julie said...

Martina: yes porcini ... Boletus edulis ... I did not buy any BTW! Would love to know a simple recipe for next time I am over that way 'cause I could be tempted: even at that price. What the heck ...

Jacob said...

It all looks good to me!

James said...

I need to start reading before looking at the pictures. I was thinking that I had no idea how much australia looked like Paris. Now I see that it's Paris that looks like Paris.
Nice pictures by the way.

Wonderful shots that made feel hungry.
Sydney - City and Suburbs

I can almost smell the cheese! Though I'd rather eat it with some of that delicious bread!

Joan Elizabeth said...

oooh I've gone up and down these shots a dozen times. They are beautiful.

I like the sound of that shopping trolly/beret/cigar look. Will you be having an aperitif at 7am also?

Ann said...

Ooooh that's looks good, must get over there one day. Apols in advance - got done for excess net usage (again) so won't be visiting so often.

Ann said...

Work policy. I've been very bored of late and with this damn staff freeze can't even look for something else.

AB said...

Martina, Julie: Yes, the 35€ fungi are what they call Steinpilze in Germany. My simple recipe would be to serve them in a cream sauce over bread dumplings (Semmelknödel).

Neil said...

Great images, here and through your blog.

BTW -- I do have a shopping trolley!

Sean said...

Nice post Julie.... its a global village, there is less of "Paris" left in Paris and the same applies everywhere else....

Julie said...

Cara: aperitif at 7am ... why certainly m'dear!

AB: you sent me on that deutsche-chase deliberately ... dratted Yorkshiremen and their straight bat! so mushooms on toast ... fried ... butter ... basil ... dash of parmesan .. hold the cabbage!

Neil: Now THAT is a challenge! My work colleague said today that I could get a red trolley down at M'ville Metro ... shall do that on Saturday! All I will need then is a pension and I am off ...

AB said...

you sent me on that deutsche-chase deliberately

I sent you to that page, because it had a picture. I though that was the easiest way to explain what Semmelknödel are. Here is a recipe for bread dumplings and mushrooms in English. Just substitute porcini for mushrooms.

BTW, you realise I am not from Yorkshire and you are just teasing?

Julie said...

No no ... I thought you WERE from the North ... yes I was teasing ... but I thought you were from Yorkshire ... umm ... where ARE you from?

Semmelknodel reminds me of something that a Dutch friend of mine used to eat ... they had it deep fried out of machines on railway stations ... let me go and look at this next recipe before I put my other foot in it!

AB said...

Julie: As I pointed out in a comment in your blog, I am from Newcastle-upon-Tyne, a town which has a bridge strikingly similar to the one in Sydney. That is in the North of England, but not in Yorkshire. We have a totally different accent and do not play much cricket.

Semmelknödel are a typical Bavarian dish. They are cooked in water and served directly from there. I do not know what that fried Dutch dish is.

Lois said...

I'll have some of that bacon quiche please!

Julie said...

Ah, yes, now I remember: my apologies. You did indeed point that out to me. And I mentioned that I had noticed the similarilty of that bridge to ours. You also have a footy team that plays in B&W.

Bacon quiche is food of the gods.

PJ Taylor said...

Lovely food pics Julie, superb. Keep up the great work. Time for me to eat I think...
