Blackbean and barberry salad...We love having this with some cold cuts of turkey and ham from the deli. 

You will need:
 1 can La Morena black beans* drained and rinsed thoroughly
 1/3 cup Pariya barberries
 1 small red chili, deseeded and finely chopped
 1 cup parsley, roughly chopped
2 cups rocket leaves
 120g soft goats cheese , we use Yarra Valley Dairy “Gentle Goat” *

1 ½ Tbs. Joesph First Run extra virgin olive oil*
½ Tbs.  Simon Johnson white balsamic vinegar*
½ Tsp.  The Regimental Condiment Company seeded mustard*
Pinch of salt and cracked black pepper*

Combine the black beans, barberries, chili and parsley together in a bowl.

Mix together in a small jar the olive oil, vinegar, mustard and seasoning.

Pour over the salad and stir through.

Serve the salad over a bed of washed greens with goat’s cheese crumbled over the top.

Washed Rind Petit Pont Leveque
Pungent and creamy this cheese is perfect for a winter evening in front of the fire with a sweet pinot noir.
A luscious triple cream made even more delicious by warming it in the oven – just crack the seal, add a splash of white wine and bake in the oven for 10 mins on medium heat, dip bread in and enjoy the lusciousness of it all.
Banon – Le Vache de Chalais
A handmade cheese from Givors- France, delicately wrapped in a vine leaf , this traditional cheese made from cow or goat's milk aged a month. The one's in store now are cow's milk .Match it with champagne or sauvignon Blanc. This cheese is as BEAUTIFUL as it is DELICIOUS. 
Beautiful Banon
