Elfreds of the Peninsula has been long renowned for its homemade recipes, which include a mild kasundi and Indian tomato relish, a spicy habanero chilli sauce, the popular mango, apple and onion Mumbai chutney, and the range of 10 spices and seasonings.
“Most of the produce, where possible, is bought on the Mornington Peninsula and cooked, bottled and labelled by myself,” business owner Fred Johnson said.
With more than a decade of experience in the kitchen, chef Simone Garusi has channelled his passion for cooking into his range of homemade frozen or cooked pastas.
He opened his Chapel St restaurant Italian Chef four years ago, but still enjoys the farmers’ market circuit, where he sells gnocchi, tortelli and a Wagyu ragu sauce.
His fusion of chocolate and slow-cooked duck has created a unique tortelli pasta – best paired with a creamy mushroom sauce – an inspired combination that has become much-loved.
Also on offer by the Cobram winery are its delicious Chardonnay, Shiraz, Cabernet Franc, Moscato and Trebbiano and their enticing ciders.
“We have an apple cider, straight pear cider, limoncello and a pear-wine cooler, which is a bit sweet,” owner Thomas Ley said.
The Seymour Alternative Farming Expo will be held from February 16-18, at Kings Park in Seymour.
