Pizz'stralia Day

On Sunday 25th of January, we once again took refuge in the garden to get away from the flag waving masses at our Pizz'stralia Day Pizza Feast. What a lovely way to spend this patriotic weekend, amongst our lush garden and and even lusher gardeners! Lots of people came along and brought all sorts of delicious ingredients with them including our ex-president Jonno, who brought some gorgeous fresh dough... 

There were sumptuous salads from the garden and pizzas smothered in forests of basil and tomatoes from the garden.

Happy Pizz'stralia Day!

This was our first big event for the year and it was delicious! The pizza oven is amazing and a great addition to the garden community.
