There’s something really honest about eating food that’s grown locally. Tomatoes taste like tomatoes, the silk of extra virgin olive oil adds that special zing to home-cooked food and apples carry the crisp scent and flavour of autumn’s crispy chill with them.
Ask at the café or restaurant where you stop for a bite. Check out roadside signs for farm-gate sales, or head for the myriad of markets that specialise in fresh Sapphire Coast produce.
