Coming events - 2015

Have you ever experienced a “food moment”........ of unexpected pleasure?

Before we started our food adventure as caper producers, we often enjoyed a pasta dish - Linguini with smoked salmon, peas and vodka - which I loved to prepare, partly because it was so easy, but mostly because it included capers. They were only a minor ingredient, but I elevated them to a major one - by just using more!

The only available capers were imported and preserved in vinegar or brine. WhiIe I found them quite addictive Barry would sideline his share or move them onto my plate. But it wasn’t until 2007 as we started to process our own, using a “dry salt” method that we discovered a very different and eminently more enticing ingredient right on our back doorstep.

        Picture a handful of lightly- rinsed, Kolophon capers pickled  

        in Murray River salt, sprinkled liberally over  pasta tossed in a

        creamy, garlicky sauce with diced smoked salmon, garden
        peas and a dash of vodka....

   (some moments later)

        In what can only be described as a sensory “hit” accompanied

        by an almost seismic shift in perception, there is an explosion

        of flavour - a revelation - of salty, floral, and fermented mustard

        notes. We  are hooked, there and then, .....

KOLOPHON capers are grown sustainably in the  RIVERLAND... clean and fresh, with real caper flavour.

Our caper patch is located 10 kms west of Berri in South Australia’s largest fruit-growing region.

Heston Blumenthal’s “pop-up” restaurant at the Crown Complex used our caper leaves during its six month stay in Australia and expressed interest in using  them in Britain too.

Melbourne’s “Hellenic Republic” continues to promote and use our ‘outstanding’ caper leaves in their  dishes.
