Yesterday it was my husband's honour to provide lunch for Julian Burnside QC and his wife the artist Kate Durham. Today it is my hope that they return, so I can give them pro bono sausages, for all the work they do with asylum seekers and refugees. It may be a tiny gesture, but it would make us happy. My parents grew up in northern Ireland. We should all be so lucky to have a stable and peaceful homeland in which to live - it's a privilege not to be taken for granted.
It's a delightful feature of this small business that we have wonderful customers - like minded people with similar views about how food should be produced and mindful eating and living. Yesterday we had many comments, moreso that usual, about how delicious the sausages were. 'My wife said you just sold her the best sausage she's ever eaten!' said Christopher from Tasmania 40 Degrees South magazine. We promptly provided him with his own, so he could see what she meant.
