Posted by lesslieReport
I would love to know how/where I can purchase some of the wonderful native Australian ingredients used in Mark Olive's (and others) recipes. I live in Sydney's lower north shore and have a number of great deli's/gourmet food shops nearby but cannot find ingredients such as wattleseed, mountain pepper, quandongs (which I love) bush tomatoes, salt bush, desert raisins, etc.
Can anyone help?
