Treasures for Sharing: 17

Hi everyone, spring is in the air! There is the delightful fragrance of blossoms and nature is starting to burst with colour. At Helen’s Kitchen Favourites we also have a ‘spring’ in our step and this is why….

Strong Results at the Royal Agricultural Society of Victoria’s Fine Food Awards

I’m delighted to tell you that Helen’s Kitchen Favourites products have achieved further success at this year’s Fine Food Awards.  I entered the Fig Conserve and was rewarded with a Bronze result.  The judges noted, “Lovely whole fruit texture, and good quality fruit used.”

Even more successful was my Beetroot Chutney which again earned a Silver Medal.  Judges’ comments noted, “Fantastic colour and finish. Nice crunchy and earthy texture.”  This result is especially positive in underlining my goal of producing products to a consistently high standard, as demonstrated by winning medals in each of the last three years, since Helen’s Kitchen Favourites started.

Some new tastes

I have now broadened my shortbread range to four exciting flavours, Passionfruit, Lemon, Rosewater and Cappuccino. Each flavour is available in packs of four and eight, and there is also a Medley option so you can try them all. Just ask for them when you next visit any of our stockists.

Similarly, I have also added 100s & 1000s Meringues. Ideal for children’s parties or the child in all of us!

There’s a brand new market! And we’ll be there.

Kensington Arts and Crafts Market (September 29) is set to be an exciting market. There will be at least 50 stalls plus buskers, live music, fresh produce, coffee and space for the kids to run around.

Like the organizers, we are passionate about arts & crafts and all things handmade! For this reason we are proud to be a founding stallholder at this community event in a very diverse and vibrant area.

See you there!
