Ever meet a food producer that you just fall in love with? It seems to happen to me all the time. Recently I met the owner of Sticky Beak Foods at the Big Pineapple and couldn’t resist buying some of her Mango chutney. I loved it!
The recipes for the homemade relishes and chutneys have been in the Place family for four generations. What did your ancestors do when they had an overabundance of tomatoes and mangoes? They preserved them and then passed the knowledge on to the next generation.
This generation of the Place family has decided to share their wonderful recipes. I didn’t get much time to talk with Mrs. Place because it was really busy at her stall, so I don’t know if they sell at other markets. I’ll try to find out.
What impressed me is the way she talked about her products. She makes them the old fashioned way, not like the huge multinational corporations – no preservatives, nothing artificial and all are gluten free.
If you see her stall anywhere, be sure to try one. I don’t think you’ll regret it!
