Rochester Street Quality Meats, also in Homebush. “I will be the first to admit that it is extremely hard for me to give up meat,” she says. “I absolutely adore it. But the Indian cuisine has so many different alternatives to meat dishes. “Sriram Kammadhenu at Kammadhenu is famous for serving dosa and roti, which is Indian bread. It is served with vegetable curries or sauces. And because of all the spices used in Indian cooking, this is a delicious way to eat vegetables. “It’s something new and something exciting. So by showing people different alternatives to eating meat, it means that people will eat better quality meat, less often.” Wee Lynn says eating more vegetables is not just good for health reasons but also for the environment as it takes far more energy and resources to get a piece of meat onto our tables. “This is a great free tour that will show people places in the area which offer produce or dishes which are good for the environment,” she says. “Because in this day in age, the production of food takes a lot of resources and energy and it is ultimately destroying our environment. “ The thing that I’m going to try and encourage on this food tour is new ways to reduce the amount of meat eaten in people’s diets. But not only to help conserve energy and resources, but for health reasons as well.” Wee Lynn said butchers Jhi and David Cornell at Rochester Street Quality Meats only sell produce reared in an ethical and environmentally sustainable farm. The meat is bought from local producers and, Wee Lynn says, while it can be slightly more expensive it is not hosed down with nitrates and is completely organic. “My aim with this food tour is to encourage people to eat better quality meat, but less,” she says. “It takes a lot of energy to get a piece of pork, chicken, beef or lamb from the pasture to plate. “And after Australians saw the atrocities that happened in Indonesia, we are becoming more aware of where our produce comes from. “Jhi and David have been running their business since 1981 and are extremely conscious about where their meat comes from.” Tasty items to whet your appetite. On the menu this month Eat your greens WHAT TO EAT IN FEBRUARY Sydney Markets is one the best places in Strathfield to find the freshest produce.
