Festive Feasting - Roasted Milking Yard Chicken with Pete Baxter

We've enlisted the help of Pete Baxter from Hope St Radio to show us his favourite way of cooking the beautiful chickens of Milking Yard Farm! He's shared with us a guide, more than a recipe, wanting to accentuate the purity of this revered bird and found the best way to do it was with a treatment of salt and time. It resulted with the chicken having the most incredible & complex flavour, almost liked aged Parmesan - earthy and bright at the same time.

Who better to team up with other than the wonderful Julia Busuttil Nishimura to share her recipe for the perfect Christmas Porchetta! ​Julia served the juicy and incredibly flavourful porchetta sliced and stuffed into a panino. She's used a large piece of our Boneless Pork Shoulder and rolled it with a herby, garlicky salt and served it with a salsa verde.

There's not much better than a classic roast and this recipe is just that! It couldn't be easier to make and highlights the flavour of our Saltbush Bultarra Lamb perfectly. We've chosen to use kipfler potatoes here which hold their shape really well and have a nutty and buttery flavour with a beautiful creamy texture.
