Tasty Treats at the Moggill Markets this Saturday

This week is another busy one including a flying visit to Monto to run a cookery judges course for the QCWA. There are very few younger people getting involved in  judging cakes and preserves and it is increasingly more difficult for local shows  to find judges, which is a shame as the popularity of cooking competitions seems to be having a bit of a resurgence. The Judges Accreditation course run by the QCWA tries to go someway in offering training for people who might be interested. Of course I will be able to fit in the cooking for the markets so there will be plenty of things to choose from.


This Week’s Cakes

  • Apple & Cranberry
  • Banana & Coconut
  • Lemon Poppy Seed
  • Walnut & Fig
  • Pumpkin Crumble (also available in a gluten free version)
  • Chilli Cornbread
  • Carrot Quinoa Bar (Gluten free)

This Week’s Tarts

  • Spinach & Ricotta Snails
  • Potato, Onion & Brie
  • Gorgonzola & Pear
  • Zucchini, Haloumi & Herb
  • Lentil with Sweet Potato Mash
  • Chickpea Rolls
  • Salted Caramel Meringue
  • Apple & Mascapone

Scones this week include plain, cranberry and fruit mince and there will be some Oat and Seed Crispbreads available as well. Don’t forget that if you want to make sure you don’t miss out to leave me a message.

Spring at the Moggill Markets

The calendar hasn’t even flipped over to September yet, but already you can feel the warmth in the air. I’m certainly not complaining – I’m more than ready for a bit of hot weather.

As well as purchasing some of the usual fare this Saturday, it is also the perfect opportunity to get something special for Dad as Father’s Day is on 2 September. I have made some delicious Cheese Pots and some Mushroom Pate. There are also some Oatmeal Biscuits and Oat and Seed Crispbreads which are perfect with the cheese pots and the pate but are also great with other cheeses. I’ve also made some quince paste which goes well on a cheese board. If Dad has a sweet tooth try the Italian Marble Cake – spices and a hint of rum.

What’s Cooking at the Moggill Markets on Saturday?




The time between markets seems to go very quickly – one market has barely finished and planning for the next one is well underway. The days have been beautiful in the last week – cold mornings to start with (not all that pleasant for the early morning market starts) but have then warmed up to glorious winter’s days. Hopefully Saturday won’t be any different.

This Saturday there are a couple of new cakes to try. You can choose from:

  • Ginger Syrup
  • Sticky Chocolate
  • Banana, Raspberry & Coconut
  • Pumpkin, Walnut & Raisin
  • Rocket & Pecorino (this is a great savoury loaf which is perfect at this time of year with soup)
  • Lemon Drizzle
  • Zucchini & Raisin

The last two are gluten free. There will also be a couple of new tarts as well as some favourites.

  • Mexican Egg
  • Fennel, Kale & Goats Cheese
  • Vegetable & Lentil with Sweet Potato
  • Carrot Galette
  • Mixed Mushroom
  • Quinoa Stuffed Capsicum
  • Salted Caramel Meringue
  • Bakewell (homemade strawberry jam on the base covered with an almond sponge. An old English recipe that is delicious)

There will be plain, cranberry and savoury olive and feta scones as well as some gingernut biscuits. Lots of things to choose from. If you want to make certain that you don’t miss out, leave me a message and I can put it aside for you.

A Market Bounty


The pantry had been a little bare of late so it was great to get to the markets on Saturday and stock up. It was a glorious day. After the recent rain it was nice to see some sun and the crowds were certainly out enjoying it.

So what did I buy?

The very first of the new season’s garlic. I love this. The bulbs are small and compact and there is no need to peel them, just remove the outer skin and then chop the little, perfectly white cloves.

Perfect new season garlic

Fennel – lots of fennel. At the end of the market, one of the stall holders was giving away her left over  fennel. After a bumper crop, she really didn’t want to take the remainder home. So after having already bought a couple of bulbs, I ended up with a dozen more. We eat quite a lot of fennel but trying to use that much was a bit daunting, so I managed to give quite a few bulbs away. It wasn’t as easy as it sounds. Nearly everyone I approached had never cooked it and didn’t know what to do with it. Fennel is really versatile, you can bake it, make a gratin with it, finely shred it as part of a salad, or make it into a soup, which is what I have done with a couple of bulbs.

My market purchases – fabulous seasonal produce

Apples – Pink Lady, Granny Smiths, Lady Williams and Fuji’s. Different apples for different uses. The Granny Smiths I generally cook with and a couple have already made in into the fennel soup. Pink Lady’s I also cook with a bit but they are a really good eating apple. The Lady Williams, I hadn’t tried before. An old variety, they are the genetic base for a number of the newer varieties. A red, crisp and slightly tart apple they are really delicious.

Add to that some strawberries, purple carrots, beetroot, cauliflower, ruby sweet potato and onions I think I’m set for a couple of weeks.

Although I have only missed one market it seems like an age since I have been at the Moggill Markets. I have been making good use of the short break and my stall has had a bit of a mini makeover. Not only that but it will be looking slightly Christmassy this market as of course it is our Christmas in July market. Plenty of entertainment for the whole family, good food, a great atmosphere and our brand new art and craft section.

On the menu this week are a few favourites and a couple of new things as well.


  • Coconut and Strawberry
  • Apple & Molasses
  • Coconut Bread
  • Avocado & Walnut
  • Cranberry & Apricot  (gluten free)
  • Banana & Blueberry (gluten free)
  • Date & Ginger squares

Other Sweet Treats

  • Mulled Wine Biscuits
  • Mince Tarts
  • Meringues


  • Roast Vegetable & Feta
  • Apple & Cheddar
  • Pumpkin & Sage
  • Lentil Shepherds Pie
  • Chick Pea Sausage Rolls
  • Ricotta & Fruit
  • Salted Caramel Meringue

There will also be freshly baked scones – plain, cranberry and wholemeal banana.

To eat in this market, there is a choice of coconut bread with lemon cream cheese, wholemeal banana scone with maple butter and mince pie and cream.

Things sell pretty quickly so if you want to make sure that you don’t miss out send me a message and I can put aside the bits and pieces that you would like to buy.
