With a new start to the blogging year, I couldn’t help but look back at all the yummy photos that didn’t make it to the blog in 2009. So I’m dedicating this first month to my rather large blog back-log.
Amongst some very delectable meals are these images from a lunch event in late October with Fountain Sauces. Thanks to the lovely Prue from The Mint Partners, I was at the table with the likes of Julie Goodwin (winner of Masterchef Australia ’09), Margaret Fulton (Australia’s greatest food guru) and Sarah Hobbs (food editor at Notebook).

The purpose of the event was to welcome Julie to the Fountain family. Like many Aussies, I have fond memories of a bottle of Fountain Tomato Sauce being my trusted companion to meat pies, sausage rolls and almost anything else I could get away with eating. And as I’ve grown up, I’ve learnt that sauces can be used in many other gourmet ways when paired with fresh produce.
Fountain’s great new website shares with us these hints, tips and cheats – a few of which I had the pleasure of tasting:
