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.

Yoghurt Fruitcake

T is the festive season again and the all-time favourite for X'mas is undoubtedly the ubiquitous fruit cake.  This Yoghurt Fruitcake caught my eye when I was browsing through a Food and Travel magazine.  As I've never baked a fruit cake with yoghurt before, I was very eager to try. 

Tau Yu Bak ~ Braised Pork Belly in Soy Sauce ( 豆油肉 )

  'Tau you bak' in Hokkien or 'Braised Pork Belly in Soy Sauce' in Cantonese is a very homey dish.  The main sauces are light and dark soy sauce with the addition of some spices like cinnamon, pepper and star anise and in this recipe I also added some oyster sauce, which is optional.  The addition of hard boiled eggs infused with the intense gravy makes this a very delicious and tasty dish.  Pair it with some sambal belacan to make it more appetising and appealing. Tau Yu Bak  ~   Braised Pork Belly in Soy Sauce ( 豆油肉 ) Ingredients 700 gm pork belly cut into 1.1/2 inch 1 Tbsp oyster sauce 1 Tbsp light soy sauce 1.1/2 Tbsp dark soy sauce 8 cloves garlic 1 cinnamon stick 2 star anise some pepper rock sugar to taste Hard boiled eggs Method Marinate the pork belly with oyster and light soy sauce for a few hours or preferably overnight. Saute the garlic with cinnamon stick and star anise with some oil in a wok. Toss in the marinated pork.  Stir-fry, add in the some hot water

Sunflower Oatmeal Cookies ~ 向日葵麦片曲奇饼

  These cookies are crunchy on the outside and a bit soft and chewy on the inside.  They are healthy cookies with sunflower seeds and whole grains giving a unique and delicious flavour.  I used instant oats in this recipe and they tend to soften the cookies somewhat but if you prefer them to be more crunchy when you consume the next day, just pop them into the oven toaster for a minute or two. You may like to add this onto your CNY to-do list of cookies. Sunflower Oatmeal Cookies    ~   向日葵麦片曲奇饼   Ingredients 60 gm butter 80 gm brown sugar 20 gm caster sugar 120 gm plain flour 1 egg 1 tsp vanilla 1/4 tsp cinnamon 1/2 tsp bicarbonate of soda 1/4 tsp salt 100 gm raw sunflower seeds 80 gm oats (instant or rolled oats) I used instant oats Method With a hand mixer beat butter with brown and caster sugar till well combined.  Add in egg and vanilla. Sift in the flour, bicarbonate of soda, cinnamon and salt.  Mix well. Fold in the sunflower seeds followed by the oats.  Mix till well combined.
