Welcome to the Sixth Edition of the Hakubaku Newsletter
Hello to all of our registered members.
We have been enjoying a spell of beautiful weather at present. I look longingly out the window beside my desk and wish I was out there, but I know that once the wind, rain and grey days of winter arrive, I'll be more content to stay indoors.
Owing to the fact that there are four seasons but that this newsletter goes out every second month we are happy to announce the winner of our Autumn Seasonal competition. Hearty meals and warming soups were the order of the day. We encourage everyone to enter their favourite recipe using seasonally available produce. See our website for all competition details.
Our Autumn Seasonal Recipe Competition
Thank you to all who sent in entries. The variety was wonderful and all very tempting.
Our winner is Amanda Montague of Tasmania.
Amanda's recipe is our featured recipe for this month especially for our newsletter subscribers and will later be available for all on our website.
Our recipe competition continues on a seasonal basis and so we welcome more entries.
Start thinking of the great winter vegies available and let us know how best you like to eat them with Hakubaku Organic noodles.
Go to www.hakubaku.com for all terms and conditions.
Our Autumn Merit Prizes go out to the following: Emma Davidson of VIC, Brad G of Perth, WA, Lynne Anderson of WA and Vivian of QLD. We would like to thank all who have taken part in the Autumn competition.
Chilli, Beef & Coriander Udon
Dissolve sugar in vinegar in pan over heat. Allow to cool and add other sauce ingredients. Stir to combine.
An tasty little plant of which all parts are edible, from the tip of the leaves to the roots, with the dried seeds and fresh leaves being most regularly used.
Coriander, also know as cilantro, is commonly used in Asian cooking but can be found in Latin American, African and Middle Eastern cuisines, to name but a few.
Coriander should have no black or yellow patches when purchasing and it will keep best when stored upright, with the roots in water, so don't leave it in the bag when you get it home.
The Japan Festival in the Box Hill Town Hall and TAFE was a great success, especially for Hakubaku Australia. Every single case of noodles that we took was sold by 2.30pm so our sales team recommends that all who missed out get in early next time. I think we will need a bigger van next year.
As always, the regular markets are an enjoyable outing with plenty to see and buy. Other upcoming markets include:
