When we discovered that a passionate foodie and self-confessed cookbook addict had decided to share her love for wholesome, sustainable and healthy food by opening a store in 'the village' down the road from Est HQ, of course we were down there in a flash to sample the fare. Tracy Sisson and daughter Georgie Smail are the mother and daughter duo behind Yardmill in Toorak, Melbourne. And responsible for our new roasted vegetable salad addiction that we just can't seem to shake.
Preparing ready made meals for the health conscious and the taste discerning, Yardmill is the perfect place to call in after work to pick up a meal for the family, drop in for a green juice 'pick me up' in the morning - or the ultimate excuse to leave the desktop at midday for some fresh salad sustenance for a long afternoon at the keyboard.
With a team of in house chefs and a nutritional consultant on hand, Yardmill offers a beautiful store front with food to match for the time poor who actually want to try and maintain some kind of semblance of a well balanced life - starting with diet.
