Annie Smithers is back behind the stove, doing what she loves best. When Du Fermier’s doors fly open at 10am, out fly fragrant wafts of just-baked bread. Eat it slathered with seasonal preserves and lashings of French butter from the tub on the front counter. Du Fermier will remind you, regularly, of how simple is often best. Excellent coffee and luxurious Parisian hot chocolate awaken sleepy eyes, and perfectly poached eggs (from Smithers’ own chooks) paired with tasty pea fritters provide ultimate satisfaction. The seasonal produce comes from Smithers’ Malmsbury garden and shiny shovels are for sale in case you’re inspired.
