Cauliflower, watercress and blue cheese soup

When you are passionate about cooking, read as many recipes as I do and cook as often as I cook you tend to learn rather quickly there are certain ingredients that just seem to belong together. I associate it with any other relationship. Sometimes, two people […]

Sautéed brussels sprouts with bacon and almonds

When I was a child I was considered one of the ‘weird kids’ for many reasons. I was always on time, I liked my teachers, I loved sports and I ate things that other kids wouldn’t even look at. Things like lambs fry, cabbage and brussels […]

Potato crusted silverbeet and feta tart

Being a self confessed food and cooking addict means that I have several vices such as most pieces of obscure kitchen equipment known to man; too many cookbooks to fit on any bookshelves in existence and a substantial collection of food pornography in the form of several magazine collections.

Red lentil, kumara and coconut soup

Fettuccini with four P’s (prawns, pancetta, peas and parsley)

In my previous few posts about pasta I mentioned that it is something that G and I don’t normally eat a lot of but it seems that in the past few weeks we have been devouring it a little more regularly. This is possibly due to a couple of reasons. […]

Pumpkin scones

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

Make your own – Lamb stock

In cooking, there are certain things that are just better made at home, even if they are a little time consuming. Stock is one of those things that, whenever I have the time, I like to make myself. There are some very good chicken and beef stocks on the market so I […]
