Driving through Orange NSW last month I got a behind-the-scenes peek at the Fresh Fodder factory. Max Schofield showed me through his rapidly expanding small business, and explained firsthand why his taramosalata is known as ‘the gangster dip’. All I’ll say is his father’s act of kindness clearly paid off. While I was there, I got to sample their new White Taramosalata [RRP $4.99], which I predict could be your gateway to getting to love this traditional dip. Spicy Semi Dried Tomato and Feta [RRP $5.99] was another strong favourite.
Max has also added salads to the range – great for work lunches. Freekah, Lentil and Kale with Spinach Felafel [RRP $6.99] won me by nailing healthy without being boring.
I also got my hands on some Kikkoman Inspir-Asian microwavable rice products. While I’m generally not a fan of pre-flavoured rice products, my partner did find the Rice Inspir-Asian Korean Bibimbap [RRP $3.79] and the Rice Inspir-Asian Teriyaki [RRP $3.79] convenient lunch-sized companions to complement homemade curries. What’s even better is they only take 45 seconds to make in the work microwave – perfect for those days you’re so busy it’s lunch al-desko.
