1. About 85% of the grains that Baladin uses for its beers come from their own organic farms.

Baladin has about 450ha of land in Piemonte (near the brewery), Basilicata and Marche combined. They are one of only 7 brewers in the world who grow their own cereals and the first beer company that was associated with the Slow Food movement.

2. For Teo Musso, the founder of the Baladin Brewery, beer is passion, an intense love for taste and a form of personal expression.

Through his recipes, he has communicated special moments in his life, sides of his being and his constant search for the perfect sensory balance. Isaac and Wayan tell of the birth of his children, while Nazionale expresses the commitment to working in direct contact with the Earth and the desire to be Italian.

Punch Cocktail Party - Melbourne Food & Wine Festival 2017

A beautiful bowl of punch creates the mood for any celebration. Perhaps it is because punch remains the most democratic beverage of all, with everyone enjoying the same drink from the same source, and each return to the punch bowl offering the prospect of a new encounter.

It was the English and Dutch sailors in the early 1700s who took the idea of punch back to Europe from India. The word itself coming from the Sanskrit (pañc) meaning 'five', as the drink was originally concocted from five key elements – sweet, sour, alcohol, water and spice.

The '5 elements' idea remains a handy guide with the difference between a good and a great punch being in the balance of elements. Remember, a great punch should never be too alcoholic, but rather refreshing and approachable with an interesting flavour that keeps everyone coming back for more.

For the Melbourne Food and Wine Festival 2017 we asked cocktail consultant Shaun Byrne to create a selection of punch recipes using the range of high quality artisan liqueurs, spirits and amari imported by Enoteca Sileno. We think you'll be inspired by the results.

Lemon Laganelle are narrow ribbons of pasta made with free-range eggs and semolina to which the zest of fresh lemons has been added. When cooked, this egg pasta has a brilliant yellow colour and fresh, lemony aroma. The lemon flavour is distinct without being overwhelming and combines well with so many ingredients. Try them with fresh ricotta, and chopped fresh herbs, or with your favourite pesto.  They are particularly brilliant with seafood and shellfish. This summer recipes combines fresh prawns and peas.
