Sylvia's Kitchen has two speciality artisan gourmet products, which have become popular amongst local good food shops and food lovers alike. Creatively and lovingly handmade in small batches using high quality produce, the recipes for these products have evolved over many years of trial, error and experimentation. All ingredients have a natural integrity and are mostly of local and Australian origin, preservative and chemical free. Included with each product is a leaflet with a story, history and recipe ideas. Please take a moment to read it, as it has a wealth of information. These products also make ideal gifts and are beautifully hand packaged and presented ready for giving and part proceeds of sales are donated to The Cancer Council Australia. We hope you Taste, Experiment and Enjoy these unique fine food products.
Sylvia’s Kitchen Tasmania - Moroccan-style Preserved Lemons in 150g and 340g jars are handmade in Northern Tasmania using Tasmanian grown chemical free lemons and selected freshly ground spices. They are matured and ready for use. The complex aroma and flavour of our preserved lemons improves and mellows over time; they will keep for well over a year and are a highly versatile aromatic flavouring. With our product, you can use the rind, pulp and preserving syrup in a variety of ways from marinades to casseroles, and in a wide range of dishes from seafood to lamb.
Although preserved lemons are indispensable in Moroccan cooking, their use should not be restricted to this style of cooking, as they provide a distinctive spicy fragrance and salty-sourness to almost any dish. Refer to the leaflet on the jar for some great recipe ideas or join in one of our Moroccan cooking classes!
Sylvia’s Kitchen Tasmania - Panforte is handmade in Northern Tasmania and is our own Australian version of the Italian specialty fruit, spice and nut cake, which dates back to medieval times. It is artisan made to our own special recipe using no less than 20 ingredients. We pride ourselves in using the finest quality dried fruits, freshly roasted nuts, cocoa, dark chocolate, fresh ground spices and pure Tasmanian honey. Serve thinly sliced with coffee, tea or dessert wine. Roughly chop and fold through vanilla ice cream for a delicious dessert with a difference.
Our Panforte is available in 100g gift wrapped bars ready for giving and makes an ideal gift for yourself and others! Many of our delighted customers have sent our unique sweet product overseas or interstate as gifts for family and friends. You can do the same, just wrap in a little bubble wrap and pop in the post.
