Third Generation Potter Sam Gordon's Off-Grid Studio, On The Edge Of A National Park

It was a big decision for Sam Gordon to leave the family business he grew up in, after many years working alongside his three siblings at Robert Gordon – the renowned pottery business his father started more than 40 years ago. But the hardest choices often turn out to be the most formative.

Harnessing the knowledge and experience accumulated over years spent in the family biz, Sam has recently started his own small scale ceramics practice, from a studio on his Gembrook property. Here, Sam has forged ahead, honing his own style of hand-thrown functional ceramics, created in small batches. Back to basics!

Lisa's Lunches · Roast Cauliflower Salad – The Design Files | Australia's most popular design blog.

A new month means a NEW Tasty Tuesday contributor, and today our very own Lisa Marie Corso steps into the kitchen!

LMC is a seriously multi-talented lass. She’s a hilarious writer and editor. She’s an excellent emailer, event planner and social butterfly. She’s a brilliantly bossy and endlessly efficient office manager. But above all, the girl can COOK. (She is Italian, after all.)

In the TDF offices, Lisa’s lunches have become legendary. This is a girl who ALWAYS has a plan for lunch. She never arrives at work without at least 3 Tupperware containers, from which she will carefully compile a delectable 3-part salad or Instagram-worthy open sandwich, or some other inspired lunchtime feast. She’s been known to eat lunch at 11.00am, and frankly, we can see why. Lisa is the queen of lunch.

Soba What?

A longtime staple in the Japanese diet, soba noodles refer to long, thin noodles made out of buckwheat. Give them a try tonight!

A longtime staple in the Japanese diet, soba noodles refer to long, thin noodles made out of buckwheat. Traditionally, soba noodles are served cold as much as they are served hot, and they may come with an accompanying dipping sauce or simmered in a hot broth.

In North America soba noodles can be found in Asian grocers as well as many natural health food stores, as they’ve become popular with folks who have cut gluten out of their diets.

However, soba noodles deserve more credit than just being gluten free: their smooth texture and nutty flavour pairs well with Asian-influenced dishes, especially soups, noodle bowls, and rice paper-wrapped spring rolls. But hey, don’t let that limit you—replace soba noodles for the typical durum wheat variety in your favourite Italian-inspired pasta dish.

Mind the label
When choosing soba noodles, pay close attention to the label. While conventional soba noodles are made with 100 percent buckwheat, many brands cut the buckwheat with regular wheat, which makes the product less expensive to consumers. If you have a gluten allergy or sensitivity, ensure the label says “100% buckwheat.”

If you’d like to give soba noodles a try, or if you’re just itching for a new, tasty soba noodle recipe, try out these alive favourites and discover a new kind of noodle!
