Raw Zucchini ‘Noodles’ & Thai Coriander Pesto

I’ve already written about the Raw Food Revolution in a previous blog post and it looks like it’s here to stay! I think that can only be a good thing, especially for those who don’t like to cook. Think about it, raw food involves no cooking so for those who don’t have time to cook or don’t […]

Oh So Sticky Pork Ribs and Wombok Peanut Salad

Let’s be honest, I’m happy when there is pork on my fork. Any kinda pork gets me going, a chunk of gelatinous belly, a sliver of grilled sweetly marinated cheek, and don’t even get me started about crispy salty skin. I’m literally drooling on my keyboard imagining all these morsels of deliciousness hitting my palate […]

Coconut Milk & Quinoa Porridge

It’s come to that time of the year where I wake up and never want to get out of bed, it’s just too cold! Unfortunately for me I live in a house where my bedroom may as well be made out of cardboard as there is absolutely no insulation and some days it’s even warmer […]

Indian Butter Chicken

There are no words adequate to describe India. India is a sensory experience that must be felt. It’s the perfumed air of incense burning, it’s the medley of spices on your tongue, it’s the beauty of women draped in brilliant pink saris, it’s the incessant sound of blaring horns, it’s dodging mud, cow dung and […]

Peanut Butter Sundae of Love

American food is so hot right now. Sweet bun burgers are the new Vegemite sandwich, Cal-Mex tacos are popping up like a teenagers pimples, hell there is even a Gumbo Kitchen cruising the streets of Melbourne. I’m not saying I’m not loving it. It’s food that is generally jam-packed full of fat, salt and sugar – what’s […]

Farewell Fig Tart

As some of you already know, I made the conscious decision (yes, I was sober) to move to the country recently. This was partly due to housing unaffordability in inner city Melbourne, partly because I like to do things differently, partly because Food Inc scared the living daylights out of me but mostly because my […]

Banana & Walnut Cake with Sweet Sour Cream

I have an obsession with baking lately and I’m not sure what has caused this? Perhaps it’s because I’m breaking in my KitchenAid, maybe it’s my new house in the sticks which now qualifies me to become a member of the Country Women’s Association, or it could be that there’s nothing quite like a slice […]

The Frozen Baklava

If I was stuck on a desert island and I was allowed to take a never-ending supply of one thing, I would take ice cream. Hopefully it would be a never-ending supply of constantly changing flavoured ice cream because I honestly love it all! When creating this dish I originally thought to make an ice […]
