It has been a long time but… I am finally back!
Do come and see me from 11am at Cherry Garden Farm Shop in Groombridge this coming Saturday September 21st 2019. I’ll have sourdough tray pizza and, if the weather is clement, my sourdough stone baked pizza. Updates on my website are imminent.
See you soon.
I am finally updating you after a little time of silence. I have stopped trading at Penshurst farmers’ market because the time has come for Maria Lara’s fresh pasta to have a base. I am looking to find a place possibly around Langton Green, Penshurst and Groombridge area. It is not turning to be an easy search but I am confident the right place will become available soon. I am very much looking forward to this opportunity to finally get to the next step of making my dream come true. Please do bear with me and, in the meantime, if you need anything please simply get in touch with me. My details are on this website.
Hi everyone. My belated thank you to my dear customers for coming to my last market of February 4th at Penshurst. My home commercial fridge has broken down and finding a specifically designed fresh egg pasta fridge here in UK is turning to be not very easy. I am getting there though but will not make it by this Saturday. I thought, for this time only, I could dedicate this market to plain pasta which I will make right before the market. I will also bring my ready made specialities I have occasionally offered to you during my past markets. This will include: savoury cakes, insalata russa, ham rolls in beef jelly, meat stuffed miniature vegetables and hopefully Panissa (chickpea polenta) and my Mum’s Tommaselle (meat rolls stuffed with ricotta and spinach) cooked in tomato sauce and vegetables. Lasagne will also be there with the Parmigiana.
I hope to see you there!
Saluti a tutti!
Maria Lara Monti
Hi all and my warmest good wishes for this new 2017!
I am very much looking forward to hopefully see you in big number on Saturday Feb.4th at Penshurst Farmer Market. I will soon update you on what I am planning to bring this time. I should still be able to make my organic pumpkin/ricotta ravioli in addition to my organic spinach Pansotti and so on. I have recently watched a program on Netflix regarding chef Massimo Bottura’s story. Just a confirmation on how rare and special is what I make in my kitchen.
See you soon – I hope!
I am very exited to be back at Penshurst Farmer Market this coming Saturday December 3rd. I have just made some small samples of Panettone Milanese for you to try and some Panettone Genovese. I will be taking orders for 1/5 kg panettoni Milanesi and panettoni genovesi to be collected on the week of the December 12th when I am planning to make my only batch for this Christmas. Below is the picture of one of mine 2.5kg giant panettone milanese I have made a few days ago. I am super proud of it .The pasta I am planning to make for this Saturday is: Pansotti with walnut sauce, pumpkin ravioli (hoping tomorrow to find the right pumpkin at Tablehurst) and hopefully some meat pasta as well. I will also bring lasagne and parmigiana. I expect this market to be very busy. I will try to make as much pasta as my hands will allow me to but please let me know in advance in case you want me to reserve some. As you know all my pasta is made the day before the market.
I hope to see you soon.
Thank you all once more for coming to my stall last Saturday. It was a rainy day but the wet weather did not stop you from coming to buy my pasta and I am very apreciative of that. I am not going to be present in November but I will be with you in December with my sourdough panettoni as well as the rest. Please do get in touch with me with orders if you don’t want to take the risk of finding an empty display. I wish you all the best and…see you soon!
Hi all. It was another very good market at Penshurst last Saturday September 3rd. Thank you to all my dear customers for patiently waiting for their turn. I was planning to be at Cherry Garden Farm shop this coming Saturday but unfortunately my husband will not be able to help me out setting up my stall. I am so very looking forward to find a permanent base where there will be no need for me to have to handle my heavy display fridge etc. Please be patient and keep your eye open for me. Any place around our area would be simply perfect. I am restlessly looking and strongly trust the opportunity will arise soon.
See you soon.
