Welcome to our cooking series. It has become apparent during quarantine that the worlds population has more bakers than any of us ever knew. More casseroles and cakes have been left on doorsteps and delivered to the vulnerable. It’s fun, it’s kind and it’s community.
Our first recipe is a solid Oliver favourite, often baked by Gran Marjorie Oliver. Marjorie passed away last year but we think of her as the lemon trees are being plucked for this favourite pudding.
Corrina took on her women winemaking cronies back in 2013 at ‘Sips in the Sticks’ at Bellwether where their brief was to make a ‘dessert or pudding’. Corrina took the crown judged by the very strict CWA Penola President – Kate Spencer. What fun!
Please try it at home and shoot us a picture. It is time to knock Corrina off her lemon delicious perch.
