“The episode we were in aired in November (last year), but we filmed in winter at the Melbourne Showgrounds in Flemington, next to the Flemington Racecourse. The day started at 8.30am in our own green room and being introduced to other farmers. It was great meeting producers from as far away as Mildura, but we also had the chance to meet other Mornington Peninsula locals like Gazzola Farms in Somerville and Hawkes Vegetable and Farm Gate in Boneo who we’d never met before. The theme for the episode was vegetarian and all the families were cooking (Greek, Italian, Turkish and Aussie). Filming started at around 10am and we were introduced to Matt Moran, who was very friendly. We went back to the green room where we chatted with other farmers, played cards, and sampled some home-grown wine until the families had finished their cooks. Then we got to eat and it was delicious! We had ricotta gnocchi, eggplant moussaka, brussels sprout salad and crispy kale chips, which were fantastic. The Italian ricotta cannelloni for dessert was sensational. The whole day was an adventure and it was nice to be recognised for all our hard work and to highlight where we get our food from. The Shahrouk family from NSW were the winners of the first season.”

So there you have it – three local ladies from Somerville Egg Farm having the time of their lives on a competitive cooking series where multi-generational families cook off until they can cook no more. And the ingredients? Supplied by our very own Somerville Egg Farm (among others) and served up on a dish of determination and home-grown fighting spirit.

Steph shows off the Peninsula lifestyle

Steph shows off the Peninsula lifestyle. Stephanie Leonard (née Bray) started her Instagram page @peninsula.lifestyle in 2015. It began as a marketing strategy for the real estate agency she was working for at the time. Now it’s transformed into a creative outlet for Steph to share her writing and photography while engaging her local community and prospective visitors. It was Steph’s stylish, engaging, and relatable content that saw her page quickly grow. Kate Sears speaks to Steph about how it’s grown to have an amazing community and highlight the paradise that is the Peninsula.
