HAPPY EATING Another year has just flown by and this year we celebrated our 7th birthday. It really made us look back and appreciate our humble beginnings and the company we have grown into today. Wow what a ride! For me food is about the people we share it with. Sitting down to eat over a glass of wine, sharing stories over a simple meal made from fresh ingredients, has to be the highlight of my day and Christmas is certainly no exception. A time to reflect and enjoy the all good things that we have. At Farro Fresh, we are all about showcasing ‘food from people who love to cook’. In this magazine we hope to tempt and delight your tastebuds, and hope that you’ll be inspired to add something new to your repertoire. This year we have made a couple of new additions to our Christmas meat selection. The first is a wonderful stuffed free range turkey roulade, that you simply defrost, roast, rest, and then slice into lovely round portions. The second is our individually portioned turkey carvery legs, deliciously pre-stuffed with orange and cranberry, so you have more time to spend with your friends and family on Christmas Day. Take a look at my selection of Farro favourites in the coming pages - these are products that have all become essentials on my shopping list in 2013! On behalf of the team at Farro Fresh we wish you all a very Merry Christmas!

OUR GUIDE TO ALL THINGS DELICIOUS One of our favourite past times at Farro is chatting with shoppers about how much they enjoy sharing delicious artisan products with family and friends. I truly believe one of the greatest pleasures in life is being able to share great food with others, especially with a glass of good wine and music!

4 • FARRO FRESH • your EVERYDAY fresh market

In the following pages you will find a selection of our favourite products this Christmas at Farro... some are old favourites that have become entertaining must-haves and others are brand new to store. I’m sure you’re going to fall in love with them as much as we have.


WILD WHEAT Wild Wheat breads are renowned in local restaurants, cafés and good food stores. Andrew Fernside established Wild Wheat after a stint in the UK as a chef, and on returning to NZ he found a rather desolate bread offering! Created with free-captured yeasts Andrew’s sourdoughs are his most celebrated breads with their beautifully thick, crunchy crust and tart, chewy interior. Andrew has developed his original sourdough starter for over ten years to be deliciously matured and tasty. Delivered fresh daily and perfect for festive eating!

KAPITI ARTISAN BREAD There is a lot to be said for a hot loaf of bread straight from the oven and Kapiti Artisan Breads have worked hard to produce just thatthe perfect bread for you to heat and eat at a home. Parbake breads give you the freedom to choose when to eat your loaf by finishing the baking process at home. Great for keeping in the fridge for those bread emergencies. Kapiti Artisan Breads commitment to quality really shines though, and we are especially fond of their Garlic Ciabatta Fold for mopping up our plates after a BBQ feast!

58 BASE 58 Pizza Bases are the perfect summer option...gourmet pizza made in the Sicilian style with a long, cool fermentation and use extra virgin olive oil to keep the dough moist. Each pizza is triple-risen and hand-stretched to produce a tasty base with a delicious chewy texture. Try with 58 Pizza sauce, fresh mozzarella & ripped basil leaves for a Christmas coloured treat! Or if you’re feeling adventurous, pop one on the BBQ with the lid down for a backyard Italian feast.

PANETON Gone are the days of rushing to your bakery to pick up a hot loaf of fresh bread for entertaining! Auckland baking institution Paneton have been baking for almost twenty years and their parbake creations have certainly been a revolution. Paneton parbakes have the most amazing flavour, texture and aroma and taking just a few minutes in a hot oven to complete the baking process they are perfect for entertaining. We recommend these if you’re heading away this Summer!

RINGAWERA Ringawera produce these delicious lavash crackers on Waiheke Island. And like true artisans- their scrumptious lavash use local ingredients wherever possible and are all free of additives. Each of the five flavours is distinctly different making them perfect for enjoying with a summer platter. Try sea salt, sesame, spiced, herb, as well as the delicious Chilli and Olive. Perfect for topping with your favourite meats, spreads and salad ingredients for a light and delicious summer lunch.

5 • FARRO FRESH • your EVERYDAY fresh market

CULLEY’S This delicious range of multi-award winning hot sauces has been carefully crafted to achieve a balance of exquisite flavours with the heat of chilli sauce you would expect. The range caters for everyone, from mild to scorching hot – these flavoursome condiments are a must have on the bbq, at the bach or in your hampers this summer! We love the Culley’s range here at Farro because it is a delicious way to give your food an extra kick!

BLACK BARN SAUCES Hawkes Bay based Black Barn Vineyards’ delicious range of sauces have become a real favourite in Farro stores, because lets face it, who doesn’t adore a gourmet sauce that can transform just about any dish into something special. With flavours such as chunky tomato, spicy chilli, steak sauce, smoky BBQ and their divine salad splash which is great served over a bed of crisp salad greens.

THE VILLAGE PRESS A great way to raise the bar for salads and steamed, baked and boiled vegetables is with one of our newest favourites ‘Shake it Up’. Splash it over warm or cold seafood, chicken or other meat salads, or add a dash to mayonnaise and creamy dressings to really make them sing. Shake it Up is a blend of premium New Zealand grown olive oil from The Village Press, high quality red wine vinegar and seasonings put together by chef and Masterchef judge Ray McVinnie.

TAIHIKI ORCHARDS Grown just outside Glenbrook, Taihiki Orchards create one of the most delicious vinaigrettes from the figs they have been producing since 1985. A hard lot of hard work goes into growing these beauties, that Taihiki Orchards have left largely unadulterated, allowing the wonderful flavour of fig to shine! We love this just as it is on a salad, but don’t be shy in tossing this about on a good roast leg of lamb or chicken too. See page 10 for our Summer Fig Chicken recipe!

MARTIN BOSLEY Martin Bosley’s Palm Sugar dressing lends itself to almost anything you can think of. Not to be confused with palm oil, palm sugar comes from the crystallised nectar of date palms and coconut palm flowers. I use it in everything from a bowl of salad greens to something more complex like barbecued duck and rice. This dressing should come with a warning- it is that good! Watch out, it’s addictive!


BAGEL LOVE Bagel Love bagels have become a staple in our pantries and this summer they’ll be on high rotation at breakfast. Bagel Love follows a simple and traditional recipe to help them achieve the New York Style bagel they are famous for. The dough is boiled prior to baking giving them a distinctive shiny skin and chewy texture. And with no added preservatives these are perfect for the whole family to enjoy. They’re perfect topped with just about anything from sweet spreads to savoury salmon or bacon.

MOUTERE GOLD A long time classic at Farro Fresh Moutere Gold products are all about small batches and really intense quality. Their passionfruit curd is a summer must have. Made in batches of 12 at a time using locally grown fruit, the care and attention taken to produce Moutere Gold’s curd and jams is exceptional. Try is as a pavlova topping or simply pop into some sweet pastry cases!

CLEARWATER’S Heading away over summer? Clearwater’s delicious organic yoghurt is a great option for those who want a great tasting yoghurt for the festive season. It is especially good with chopped summer fruits. The yoghurt is a thick greek style, which lends itself well to cooking and eating, just make sure you mix in the delicious ‘cream top’ first! Available in 345g, 760g, or handy 2 KG pots. Also available in the range are yoghurts with Honey, Apple & Cinnamon, and Fat Free (Topless). Proudly distributed by Eco Foods.

SUNSET EGGS If you are anything like us, choosing free-range is very important when it comes to what our families are eating, which is why Sunset Free Range eggs are always on our shopping list! Not only are they delicious, but knowing that they are from a SPCA approved family farm just fifty minutes from Auckland is absolutely great! Use these eggs for tasty breakfasts and easy afternoon quiches and frittatas this summer.

ALLPRESS XMAS BLEND Sitting down to a great cup of coffee amongst the chaos of Christmas is a remarkable thing. The Allpress Christmas Blend is a special selection of coffees from Sumatra Aceh, Guatemala La Vega and Ethiopia Yirgacheffe. The taste has hints of berries and cinnamon with a cocoa finish. Hot air roasted and packed fresh daily, this coffee is uniquely packaged for its distinguished place and taste amongst great Christmas fare. Available from 18th November.

LEWIS ROAD MILK The team at Lewis Road Creamery set out to create dairy products the way they’re meant to be, starting with fresh butter that tastes like real butter should. Now they’ve added a delicious range of organic creams and milks that have us really excited about our cups of tea and muesli again! Sourced exclusively from jersey cows, Lewis Road milk comes in a variety of types - from trim all the way through to the utterly luxurious silver top.

MAHI FARMS BACON There is something comforting about knowing you have bacon on hand over the festive season - it is so easy to turn into a number of dishes from breakfast right through to dinner! Since arriving on our shelves, Mahi Farms bacon has been a huge hit with customers and staff alike. We particularly like how it doesn’t shrink like other bacon can, meaning more bacon for your buck!

ARANO JUICES Arano, New Zealand’s oldest chilled juice brand, was born in 1982. They are absolutely obsessed with perfection and bringing you New Zealand’s best chilled juice. Their recipe is simple; they only use all New Zealand grown premium fruit, their orange juice is 100% pure with no preservatives. It really does taste like you’ve squeezed it yourself, that’s because it isn’t ultra-heat treated like many other juices. Perfect for lazy summer breakfasts.

TE ATATU TOASTED Locally made, Te Atatu Toasted Original Blend is a delicious muesli that is sweetened with only apple puree and honey, so it is free of refined sugar, preservatives, sulphites, and emulsifiers. With loads of whole oats, almonds and seeds – this muesli will give you a deliciously good start to your day, and help you recover from any seasonal over-indulgence! Be sure to try the Health and Gluten Free Blends too.


CURIOUS CROPPERS Curious Croppers tomatoes are always a hit at Farro over summer. And these little gems come in a variety of sizes and curious colours that look as good as they taste - amazing! Grown in Clevedon, Auckland the Curious Croppers are true artisan producers, producing arguably the best tomatoes around. See our recipe on page 10 for a simple and delicious salad where these gorgeous tomatoes are truly the star.

DIVINA MOZZERELLA Carefully crafted from the milk of buffalo - the richest milk in the cheesemaking arsenal, buffalo mozzarella is a gorgeous contradiction: feather-light and unmistakably rich, delicate and full flavored. Divina buffalo mozzarella, imported direct from Italy, lends itself to a huge number of dishes like crispy Italian pizza and fresh salads of tomato, basil and mozzarella. Add some to your summer shopping list and you won’t be disappointed.

SALUMERIA FONTANA Awarded many times for his gorgeous traditional Italian sausages Greg at Salumeria Fontana is a master in his field. We love these just as they are, cooked with the care and attention they deserve or squeezed out of their skins and added to pastas and pizzas. Beautiful quality, beautiful taste- a true artisan product.

PROPER CRISPS Proper Crisps have been a favourite of ours for a long while, as we had been searching for a chip that wasn’t full of nasties but also one that tasted great. This Nelson based business has created what we think are the most delicious chips we have tried. They start with South Island potatoes then cook them in small batches and flavour using only natural ingredients. A definite entertaining staple over the festive season.

SUNTORY PREMIUM BEER Ten years of development was undertaken by Suntory Japan to create a pilsner style beer with a delicate hoppy aroma, firm body and a deep rich flavour. Taking from the beer making traditions of the Czech republic and Germany and adding a Japanese twist, Suntory Malt is a true Japanese beer ideal to match with food and a great new addition to the imported beer seection at Farro Fresh.

FIRSTLIGHT MEATS Wagu has taken it’s place in the restaurants of Auckland being a much celebrated and eventful dining experience but at Farro we have been enjoying Wagu at home for some years courtesy of Firstlight. Grass-fed beef is not only better for the cow but also creates a more delicious meat, higher in Omega 3 than grain-fed meats. As the only commercially sized producer of Wagu beef we are proud to have them as part of the Farro family. Firstlight also raise ethical venison- another aspect we are very proud to support.

SIX BARREL SODA CO Six Barrel Soda Co. grew from a love of classic sodas and soda fountain culture. Their syrups are made from all natural ingredients and from hand juicing lemons to bottling and stamping labels, every step of their production process is designed to make each of their syrups unique. Try them at home, mixed with one part syrup to five parts soda, or sparkling water. This summer we will be enjoying their delicious new celery tonic over ice for a refreshing cocktail!

EDEN FARMS EXCLUSIVE Eden Farms raise free-roaming and well cared for chickens and this is evident in the superb quality of the meat they produce. The farms are subject to auditing by SPCA inspectors who ensure farmers meet the highest welfare standards. Located locally, Eden Farms’ chickens are free to roam during the day, before returning to their coops at night to rest. Available as thighs, breasts, drums and whole birds, this is the chicken we reach for first in our fridges! Found exclusively at Farro Fresh.

O’NUTS O’Nuts are a delicious hand crafted nut snack from Alexandra’s that is batch roasted right here in Auckland. They are the perfect snack for enjoying with a few drinks on a summers day. Their premium mix of specially coated peanuts, crunchy almonds and pumpkin seeds, dusted with a little Marlborough sea salt adds something special to your Christmas celebrations, and don’t forget their ‘Raving Roast’ and ‘Raving Cajun’ (with a little chilli for those who like things spicy.)

PINOLI PINENUTS Finally a delicious pinenut grown right here in New Zealand. Pinoli Pinenuts have been flying off our shelves and for good reason... they taste fantastic!

In Italy, Christmas wouldn’t be complete without a round of the traditional spiced cake typical of Siena – Panforte. And here in New Zealand we are lucky enough to have our own handcrafted Panforte, made fresh in Christchurch. Our pick of the four flavours is Panforte Fichi – roasted hazelnuts, fig and glace peel combined with spiced honey and topped with icing sugar and cinnamon.. Christmas at Farro wouldn’t taste quite the same if we didn’t have this delicious panforte. It certainly does taste like Christmas!

These delicious puddings come in two sizes and are handmade with time and care by Bill and Judith Hanrahan. One secret they did give away is that that the delicious taste comes from the fruit which is soaked in a mixture of spices, spirits and stout! Delicious on its own or dressed up with a vanilla custard.

Remove from heat and allow to infuse for 10 mins. Lay the side of salmon (cut into portions if needed) into a large oven tray and pour over the hot marinade.

In a saucepan heat all the ingredients to a simmer. Allow to cool and infuse overnight. To glaze your ham, preheat oven to 180oC and and line an oven tray with baking paper.

Cover with cling film and refrigerate overnight.

Carefully remove the skin of the ham by easing your fingers between the skin and meat, working gently to keep the fat layer intact.

Bring the salmon back to room temperature prior to serving with a big salad of blood orange segments, shaved fennel, Italian parsley, sliced radish and blanched green beans.

At the hock end, make a cut around the top of the hock so the skin can be removed. Score the fat evenly across the whole ham making sure you don’t cut too deep into the body of the meat.

Place in oven for 15-20 mins, remove and baste again with half the mix again and return to oven for a further 15 mins. Remove for a final basting and cook for a last 15 mins.

We firmly believe that there’s lots to be gained by interacting with a specialist. It brings the food loving community together, creates buzz, vitality, adds colour, and offers the opportunity for social interaction with like-minded food lovers. The talent of our producers is exceptional, and we are constantly surprised by their amazing innovations. Whenever you visit your local Farro Fresh store you can expect the very finest seasonal farm produce, artisan foods & delicatessen, hand produced and sourced by people who are passionate about what they do, and this passion is infectious!

Along with their artisan growers and farmers, they use organic and biological methods constantly striving to achieve optimum food compositional profiles with low residues of the undesirables. They combine that with traditional and natural methods of creating small goods both themselves and in partnership with the deep European traditional approaches of Otellos and Salash and their wonderful varieties of flavors and products. The Farm Butchery is a great fit for us here at Farro Fresh because of the ethical and sustainable approach to producing the food that ends up on our plates.

CULLEY’S Culley’s; named after owner and founder Chris Cullen, is a playful nickname now crafting its way as a household brand. Culley’s unwavering passion for chilli combined with over a decade as a Chef in New Zealand and Melbourne set him on a quest to explore the far reaches of over 25 countries tasting the worlds’ finest produce and most exotic flavours. Upon his return [and with much encouragement and goading from his mates] he set about crafting a range of multi-award winning sauces. “I wanted to create a variety of sauces that were not only hot, but also flavoursome and something extraordinary”. The Culley’s range is produced in New Zealand with the finest quality spray free Chilli’s and the majority of the range is gluten & preservative free.
