(paleo) Pork & eggplant curry

Hellllllloooooo!!!!! It is so long since I have posted on my website, looked at a new recipe or even spoken to you all that I feel like I almost need to reintroduce myself.

For those who are new to my blog, my sincere welcome, I hope you find it interesting. […]

(too easy) Carrot cake

Sharing recipes of any kind is a very special thing. Some of them involve family traditions and secret ingredients; many are not even written down and only learnt through teaching the next generation. This is something that I have always loved about cooking and one of the things that drives […]

Baklava spread

I may have mentioned before that making desserts is one of my favourite things to do in the kitchen and looking at my last few Newsletters I seem to do a lot of it :). Clients often ask me if I actually eat the food I create because they think […]

Red lentil, kumara and coconut soup

A little while ago I realised that my obsession for food magazines and cookbooks was completely out of control. My bookshelves were almost bursting out of the shelves, my spare room looked more like a library as each day passed and the spare piles of magazines were becoming high enough […]

Pumpkin scones

I’ve never considered myself a technical genius or one […]

Indian feast – 4 delicious dishes

I have mentioned my love for cooking with spices in many posts and have included both Thai and Indian categories in my list because they are two of the cuisines I cook whenever I have the opportunity. I sometimes find that making spice mixes and curry […]

There are times that I absolutely love to make things that I have made a hundred times before. There is something extremely comforting about knowing a recipe like the back of your hand and knowing the steps inside out. Most of these types of recipes come from my Nanna or my Mum. […]

Fuyu dessert cake

I love finding new produce or products that I have never used before. I’ve even been known to purchase items without really having any idea what they might taste like or how to use them and bringing them home just to experiment. For me, this is part of the joy […]

Aromatic chicken pilau

Seeing the final few leaves fall from the frangipani tree signified that winter is just around the corner. This makes me feel a little sad because I love the summer and autumn months in Perth. The heat can be exhausting when it is at its most […]

Thai pumpkin and fish curry

Continuing my journey into the unknown depths of my freezer has allowed me to discover certain items that I had completely forgotten about. I’m not sure that is a good thing or something that I should be admitting to but it is a fact. One of those items was a large fillet of […]

Chicken tortellini my way

I know this photo doesn’t look like tortellini but I encourage you read on to discover the whole story.

Sometimes disasters in the kitchen can be devastating. That is one of the reasons I test my recipes for my classes several times before teaching them. However, other times they […]

Lamb koftas

I generally have a few staple dinners that I cook during the week. You know what I mean, those dishes that you know take minimum time to prepare and taste great for what they are. Lately though, I have been trying to make sure that I cook a few different things. That, combined […]
