Yum. I love beetroot in all forms. I imagine this would be a lovely colour.
May all dairy items in your fridge be of questionable vintage.

yes,  I personally asked if I could post his recipes on both my Blog and the Forum.  I said i would direct people to his site for more recipes.  he said that if people signed up to his site,  which I have done,  they would be posted recipes as they became available.  This is a new venture for him and he is keen for people to know about it.  He said I could link directly to his site,  but I have had trouble doing this.  I am very new to linking so think I am doing something wrong.  I also asked if I might take photos and post these.   After recent difficulties, I was most particular in requesting permission and in how i have posted the recipes.

Yes, that was a lesson for everyone Chookie and good on you for getting it sorted out at the class there and then. Andrew must be a very reasonable person to do what he is doing.

Wonderful! Sorry if I had missed where you had posted that. Andrew is a generous person and very passionate about promoting native foods. I attended one of his classes in Adelaide and found it very inspiring.

Chookie, your link is working perfectly well for me today.  I couldn't find any of his recipes the first time I tried after you posted the first recipe but found them all today - couldn't see any of those you posted though, all different (I think  :P).  The site was a little slow downloading but that might just be my computer.
