Gourmet Breakfast in a park - yes please
Breakfast delicacies coming to an outdoor natural venue near you sounds too good to be true. Surely they'd need a fixed kitchen, or a food truck, to deliver a great breakfast. Surely they couldn't cook a delicious gourmet breakfast on a park BBQ ? Or could they ?

Little and Often is a mobile breakfast concept that brings a sustainable and ethical breakfast alternative to the Barossa Valley with loads of fun and joy. Little and Often is the brainchild of Pete and Beck, and they are all about wholesome, nourishing food and everything sustainable. Serving up single origin coffee, locally blended tea, kombucha, green juice and a bunch of other feel good food they "pop up" for a month of Summer Sundays in a row at a certain venue, and start serving up some great coffee and some special breakfast dishes.

During January and February, Little and Often were at Whistler Wines on Seppeltsfield Road, so I popped in there for breakfast. A nice sized crowd had gathered under the tall gum trees, and the Whistler Wines veranda, while the baristas and chefs had taken occupation of the BBQ on the lawns. With plenty of chairs, stools, boxes and mats, there was room for everyone, and also lots of room for the kids to play and explore the extensive grounds.

Starting off with a coffee from Barossa Coffee Roasters was a great idea as it gave us a chance to sample some of the interesting beans from Guatemala that Paul and Janelle had gathered in recent times. The intensity, character and flavour from these single origin beans was a perfect pick-me-up on this Sunday morning. And playing cards may well be a thing of the past, but they certainly make some very ingenuous table numbers.

The food menu had several interesting choices amongst some of the standard fare, so as we were treating ourselves why not have something special and unique in this outdoor environment. The almond meal waffles with caramelised pumpkin and cashew cream arrived, and I must say that these were simply astounding. The sweet pumpkin was absolutely delicious, and when combined with the cream and syrup, it became a delightful early morning treat.

Our other choice was the organic corn and zucchini fritter with sweet potato chips and vache curd. This was another dish made on the park BBQ in a manner that was a true compliment to the chef, and served on a gorgeous set of 1970's Johnsons of Australia crockery that Pete and Beck had been collecting for some years. It was hard to find fault with both dishes, and even harder to find issues with this venue chosen amongst the vines and under the shading gum trees.

Little and Often in conjunction with Barossa Coffee Roasters has been serving great breakfasts in several of the more natural settings in the Barossa Valley over the last Summer, and given the success of the pop-up idea, they intend to keep on doing this for some time to come. Popular demand may also see them extend the concept to more than the Summer months.
