Barossa Valley Food Heritage – Making Butter, Quark & Kochkase!

We are so blessed here in the Barossa Valley with not only a combination of wonderful, passionate food producers, talented chefs and an amazing food history, but also people who have spent many hours of time and energy ensuring Barossa food traditions are preserved and shared.

A recent initiative of the Barons of the Barossa was to fund a project where six videos were made featuring early settler foods. Local chef Mark McNamara and Barossa Masterchef finalist Callum Hann visit the cooks in their own kitchens preparing the food. The aim is to promote and preserve the Barossa’s unique food culture.

I hope you enjoy this video, I’m sure if you’re under 60 years of age you will be stunned at how easy butter is to make!

If you would like to see the whole series of videos, they can be found  on Mark McNamara’s Food Luddite website.

After working as a Registered Nurse and Midwife for over 30 years, I now have the luxury of looking after my amazing guests in our Cottage. With my husband, Peter Milhinch we also own artisan wine label Seize the Day Wines. We grow shiraz and cabernet sauvignon grapes in our small vineyard adjacent to the Cottage and working closely with our winemaker, produce limited, small batches of our premium Barossa Seize the Day Shiraz.
