In cinnamon country

COUNTRY Road Café chef and owner Naomi Putland has released a cookbook featuring some well-loved contemporary dishes.

The Cinnamon Sage features favourites on the Country Road Café menu and should inspire many people to create their own food masterpieces at home.

Ms Putland has been a vegetarian for 19 years and said the book would entice meat eaters and vegetarians alike.

“I think many people eat at the cafe or will read this book and enjoy the food on offer without even realising that what they are eating is vegetarian,” she says.

“Cooking vegetarian food is often seen as a daunting and time-consuming affair, but it need not be. It’s all about choosing simple, delicious food that can be prepared with a minimum of fuss.”

Ms Putland has operated the Murray Street Country Road Café for three years.


Proprietor of Friendly Fish at Barrack Street Jetty, Bill Edgar, is pleading not guilty to charges brought against his business by the Department of Consumer and Employment Protection.

The department alleges that Friendly Fish sold fish labelled as barramundi when in fact it was a different species.

A hearing has been set down for April 16 and is the result of investigations made by the DoCEP last year into fish substitution, primarily of nile perch being sold as barramundi, by restaurants across the metropolitan area.
