Get discounted tickets for Spring Flavour Exchange at Melbourne’s Federation Square
Come along to the Spring Flavour Exchange showcase to taste and purchase some of the finest, fresh produce from leading Victorian food and drink producers, where the spotlight is shining on the Yarra Valley.
To help raise the profile of the mighty Brussel Sprout, Lumo Energy staff went to Adams Farm to learn more about how this green leafy bulb is grown, farmed, packed and cooked to perfection. Lumo staff helped pick and pack this vitamin rich veggie.
Adams Farm is situated in the picturesque Coldstream, and it provides sprouts for supermarkets and grocers across Australia. The farm is a family run business which was founded in 1960, and it is championing this misunderstood veggie by creating some great initiatives to lifts its profile as highlighted in a recent story in The Age.
Brussels sprouts are not everyone’s favourite vegetable and Adams Farm are keen to break down the misconceptions relating to its taste in particular and the many ways it can be enjoyed, it’s all in the cooking says Bruce Adams, third generation farmer.
According to Bruce, many people over cook sprouts which creates a bitter taste, he went on to say it can be enjoyed in many ways from salads to stir fry to pasta and a good old roasting. Simply add your favourite herbs and spices and don’t over-cook them.
