Caldermeade Farm, South Gippsland Highway


On our way to Phillip Island to see the penguin parade, we stopped by this Caldermeade farm on the South Gippsland highway to take a break and to explore and see what's in store for us. 





A wishing well next to the entrance of the farm and cafe and the weather was cold on that day, strong wintry winds.




From this barn, we can watch how the cows are being milked but being year end,  the place is closed for the festive season.


This is the machine that is being used to milk the cows.




This is some interesting information regarding the farm cow's circle of life. 




We enjoyed the cool fresh clean air, had some freshly made scones served with home made jam, cream,  hot coffee and tea before proceeding on with our journey.

  3. Phillip Island, how I miss the penguins. Went there last June, the little birds looked simply adorable... :) I am impressed with how they waited for their comrades to come onshore before heading home!! :) Hehe...

    Oh yes, they were so cute, but as it was dark it was quite difficult to spot them at the beginning.

Sticky rice cake with red bean paste ~ 芝麻豆沙饼

I love red bean, be it  in kuih, mooncakes, rice dumpling or other pastries with red bean paste filling.   This was my first attempt at making the red bean paste from scratch and had to admit that it was really very time consuming.  Nonetheless this sticky rice cake or glutinous rice cake with red bean paste, was indeed very delicious especially when taken fresh from the pan.  I like it that it was not deep-fried but pan-fried with very little oil when using a non-stick pan.  Great to snack on with a good old cup of hot Chinese tea!

Wife Biscuit (Lo Por Paeng) 老婆餅

Happy New Year, everyone!   My first post for 2015 is 'Wife Biscuit' aka 'Lo Por Paeng', a soft and flaky pastry with winter melon filling which is a very popular delicacy in Hong Kong.  The ones that I find here are not the same as their  flaky counterparts, instead they are crispy and thin.   I've been surfing the internet for a recipe and I was very happy when I stumbled upon a Youtube video from SiuKitchen.   The video is in Cantonese and she gives very detailed steps on how to make these flaky pastries.   The pastries were good and stayed flaky and soft for three days in an airtight container.  I needn't have to reheat them in the oven toaster.
