Lunar New Year

Lunar New Year (or Chinese New Year) is one of the world's great annual celebrations. How big? Well, in China people are expected to take around three billion journeys as they travel to join family for festivities. The shebang begins on Thursday February 15, with the Year of the Dog starting the following day, and celebrations continuing for 23 days. Special 'lucky' foods are eaten during this period, sometimes because of their colour (red is lucky) and often because their name is a homonym for words such as 'luck', 'prosperity', 'wealth'.

Stonefruit – radio chat & recipe ideas

I try to appreciate nature's bounty with every mouthful but I am especially in awe of peaches: I find it so amazing that this fuzzy fruit's seed is protected by flesh that's so evocative, sweet and juicy. Practical propagation probably doesn't need to be this delicious but YES. Enjoy my stonefruit primer and recipe suggestions.
