Food For Thought

Did you know?

When you cut out processed foods you reduce trans fatty acids, cholesterol and additives. Also, salt intake is almost eliminated. 

How do we do it?

Easy, cook just as our grandparents would have done! Using fresh produce that is in season. 


Grandma's Shortbread Treats


100g plain flour

50g cornflour

50g caster sugar

100g butter



1. Preheat oven to 160 degrees and grease baking tray.

2. Combine, plain flour, cornflour and sugar in a large bowl. Use your fingertips to rub in the butter until it resembles fine breadcrumbs. Turn onto a lightly floured surface and knead until smooth. 

3. Roll dough out until 1cm thick. Use a pastry cutter to cut shapes from dough or roll into balls and slightly flatten with a fork. Place on prepared trays. Bake in centre of oven for 45 minutes or until shortbreads start to change colour.
