Winter Warmers with The Wonky Loaf and Greensmith Grocers

Image source: Contributed

Winter calls for nurturing our health with nutrient-rich superfoods, sustainable and natural supplements and sweet comforts. Georgia Beard unearths the flavour hits.


Sink your teeth into The Wonky Loaf’s slow-fermented, organic and buttery pastry and discover the freshest ingredients that are as local, seasonal, sustainable and organic as you can get. 

The Wonky Loaf’s pork-and-fennel Sausage Rolls are perfect winter warmers; as are the range of individual or family pies. 

With flavours for every palette, mix traditional hits with flavourful combinations such as Beef Stroganoff, Chicken & Mushroom or Veggie Samosa. 

Grab your goodies fresh or frozen from The Wonky Loaf’s Kuluin café or explore the frozen range on offer at Greensmith Grocers.

Perfect winter warmers for the whole family that are easy to prepare and even easier to digest with the magic of a 36-hour-plus sourdough fermentation and organic ingredients! 


Sourced from Noosa’s pristine hinterland and handmade by local artisan foodies, Noosa Black Garlic ages Elephant Garlic to achieve its signature black colour and sweet umami flavour, improving digestibility, antioxidant activities and protective effects for the cardiovascular system.


Cold-pressed from Australian grown Frantoio olives, Mount Zero’s Organic Extra Virgin Olive Oil is a great all-rounder for liberal lashings on salads, meats and vegetables. Infuse your dishes with a herbaceous aroma, featuring notes of walnut and tomato leaf and a delicious lasting pepperiness.


Crunchy, whole-roasted hazelnuts coated in fair-trade, couverture chocolate – a heavenly combination of flavours. Dark Chocolate Hazelnuts from Organic Times may be irresistible, but try not to eat the entire box in one sitting!
