Manna From Heaven — 'Spring blossoms are everywhere'


So begins the latest update from Rachel Grisewood (above), founder of Manna From Heaven, a very popular Australian organic bakery considered Sydney's original Slowfood emporium.

The mild shock of visual dissonance, as I watch the leaves turning their sumptuous fall colors out the window here at bookofjoe World Headquarters, passed like one of those chilly frissons you get every now and then for no apparent reason.

Once I realized that Rachel is down under and that her Marrickville (an inner–west suburb of Sydney), NSW Australia bakery is therefore climatically the opposite of mine, it was all good.

I came across Manna From Heaven in The Blue Pollen Issue of Fourth Door Review (below),


a quirky small publication out of the U.K.

On page 75 of the latest issue — the seventh in Fourth Door Review's history — is a detailed recipe for one of Manna From Heaven's specialties.

Alas, the recipe — for Honey and Olive Oil Cake With Macerated Strawberries and Cream — is far too involved for microwave moi.

But wait — there's hope: Manna From Heaven's website states, "Manna is on track to sell biscuits into the USA, Japan and the UK."

In the meantime, all Australian joeheads are urged to stop by — it's located at 78 Livingstone Road, Marrickville NSW 2204 (tel. 61 2 9572 7177) and say hi.

Tell Rachel that Joe sent you.

As if.
