Matt Moran’s firing up his brand new retro Chiswick Veggie Van to deliver special complimentary veggie boxes to lucky Sydneysiders over the next few weeks, all containing seasonal produce hand-picked from his purpose-planted Chiswick gardens. Aimed at showcasing the new spring menus at his restaurants Chiswick Woollahra and Chiswick at the Gallery, the boxes highlight a selection of fruits, veggies and herbs picked by Moran and Head Chef (Chiswick Woollahra) Tom Haynes at optimum ripeness and condition.
“Spring is such a beautiful time at Chiswick. The garden is so vibrant and full of stunning produce like asparagus and globe artichokes”, said Moran. “We are really excited to be able to bring a selection of our favourite spring produce items to our customer’s door, so they can create their own dishes”.
Along with the likes of eggplants, blood oranges, radishes, kale, heirloom tomatoes and golden nugget pumpkin, these free boxes will include a guide of making the most of each ingredients. Moran and Haynes will even chuck in the recipe and ingredients necessary to make Chiswick’s fresh mint salsa, which is a favourite often served alongside Chiswick’s signature Moran Family Lamb Shoulder.
The van itself, a colourful vehicle covered in bright vegetable illustrations, has been designed as a moving representation of the spring garden and will be heading ’round Sydney on each remaining Friday of this month – 10th, 17th and 24th. Free Chiswick veggie boxes are limited so whoever wants one should register their interest HERE.
Chosen recipients will be provided with details on when they can expect a delivery from the Chiswick Veggie Van.
