Tomato and watermelon gazpacho

I’m one of those food bloggers who snaps a shot of a dish right before I eat it. I work full time, I have two kids and I’m always out and about. I don’t have the time nor the inclination to make food for the blog that I’m not going […]

Scallops with chipotle cauliflower cream

This is one of my cheat dishes. You know those ones that look really amazing but take 5 minutes to make and absolutely no technique? It’s inspired by a pintxo I tried in San Sebastian over the summer (Scallop with roasted nori and almond cream from Casa Urola), but it’s […]

Beer-bum chicken

Beer-bum chicken

Oops – did I just say that? Yes, I did, and I’m certainly not the first. This recipe has been handed down from father to son in many an Australian household, at least since the 1980s. Somehow I got let in on the secret, and I have to tell you, […]

Monochrome Chocolate Cake with Hamsa motif

Monochrome Chocolate Cake with Hamsa motif

This is a real chocolate cake, made with good quality dark chocolate, and you can really taste the difference. The fudge frosting can be made with any form of chocolate (here’s a similar version) but here I’ve mixed it up a bit and used white. This way, I could decorate […]

Zucchini Carpaccio

Zucchini Carpaccio

Taking a lesson from my previous post, I’m showing you a dish that’s all in the presentation. Let’s not tell anyone that your main ingredient comes directly out of a packet. Nor that your gourmet dribbles either come out of a bottle you bought in the supermarket, or are a […]

Simple Tuna Pasta

Simple Tuna Pasta

My husband’s been away, and the first thing my kids did was ask me “Mama, can we PLEASE have REAL pasta before Daddy get’s home?” I’ll let you into a secret. It doesn’t matter how often I tell you that there is nothing wrong with gluten free pasta, I’m lying. […]

Fenugreek and feta salad

Fenugreek and feta salad

In the UAE I have learned to work with a variety of fresh ingredients I had never even seen before whilst living back home in Australia. Herbs are one of the big ones. Each supermarket in Dubai has a fresh greens stand, piled high with scented bunches contained by elastic […]

Christmas Sorted

Christmas Sorted

I started to write a book nearly 2 years ago. It was stolen halfway through, and so the content already complete went to the great hard-drive in the sky.  The other half went to the place that all pipe dreams go – somewhere I can see it when I squint, […]

Dairy Free, Gluten Free Pain d’Epices

Dairy Free, Gluten Free Pain d’Epices

I’m still working towards a love of Christmas cake. To me, it’s just a pile of boozy dried fruit – something to make you regular and drunk at the same time. Just like medicine. It’s a bit unfortunate really, because it’s actually a great recipe to make gluten-free. All that […]
