When Di Wilson bakes a cake for her stall at the Mullumbimby Farmers Market, she doesn’t reach for any old packet of flour, she grinds the flour herself. “Everything I use is basically made from the grain up,” she said. “This is going to sound really hippy – but there’s are so many numbers in things.  If you just look at a jar of peanut butter, there’s a list of ingredients as long as my arm.” “We’re on chemical overload and our immune systems are struggling to deal with stuff you put in there that’s not actually food. “You have to ask yourself, why are we eating if it’s not really food?
“Even the flours you get from the supermarket, they’ll still have something like an anti-caking agent in them. At least I know what’s going in the stuff that I bake.”

Di’s commitment to cooking from scratch and using whole, unprocessed ingredients in her baking is one reason customers keep returning to her Pickles Chicks stall at the market each Friday.The other of course, is the amazing flavour of the sweet and savoury goodies she creates.

Her baking could be described as CWA style with a modern twist. With a big variety of gluten free and vegan options sit happily alongside more decadent traditional-style treats.

Her menu is always changing (she says she gets bored easily) and she continues to experiment (‘I have a lot of failures’ – she laughs), but there are a few mainstays, including her gluten free chocolate brownies, spinach and three-cheese pie and fresh apple cake (vegan). Other popular items on the menu are her salted caramel macaroons, hummingbird cake with a coconut cream icing, seasonal fruit shortcake, Caribbean carrot cake with lime cream cheese icing, roast vegetable tart with quinoa pastry and vegan donuts. Di also makes her own cashew cream, minted yoghurt and tahini dressing to serve with her food, and her own vegan parmesan cheese.
