Roast chicken with pearl couscous and roast sweet potato salad

June 24, 2014

3

Unless you are vegetarian or vegan, roast chicken is one of those dishes everyone learns to cook and eventually develops their own way of doing. (Even if you are vegetarian/vegan, keep reading, the accompanying couscous and sweet potato salad is pretty good.) Certainly I’m aware I do a couple of things differently to my roast […]

Grain salad

May 19, 2014

4

This is another copy cat recipe, but I dare not call it by its restaurant given name because I’ve made a few alterations to the original recipe, and it’s such a famous recipe that it would misleading to pretend that it’s the same dish. Hence the slightly strange nondescript name of the dish… The dish […]

Eggplant, quinoa, barley and hazelnut salad

February 19, 2014

3

If you have been as indulgent as I have been over the first couple of weeks of February, you should be practicing some clean eating too. So here I am trying to be helpful to compensate  for the lack of posts this month. This is a seasonal, tasty and filling salad that features one of […]

Avocado, bacon and eggs smash

January 6, 2014

5

Smashed avocado alongside bacon and eggs has pretty much become ubiquitous on brunch menus across Melbourne. It’s not too hard to see why; we’re all trying to pack more greens into our meals and it’s helpful to start the day off on the right foot. But with popularity comes uniformity and we’ve become all too […]

Tuna patties recipe

September 12, 2013

5

This is going to be another quick fish and potato recipe to add to my collection (previous ones here and here) because I obviously love pairing these two things together. A friend and I use to regularly have ‘tuna patty lunches’ because we really liked the ones our local cafe made. She’s since relocated to […]

Coriander and cashew dip recipe

August 9, 2013

7

Just a quick and easy recipe for as we’re approaching the weekend (yay!). This dip/condiment is great to have around the house. You can call this a ‘coriander pesto’, but it feels a bit incorrect since pesto specifically refers to a basil based blend. It’s like calling a pear and chocolate cake a ‘pear jaffa […]

Easy fish pie recipe

June 19, 2013

2

Pies are such a comforting food to have in winter, unfortunately they’re not necessarily a simple dish to cook on a whim. Usually it involves some slow cooked stewed meat of some kind. Then I had an ‘ah-ha’ moment. What if it was a fish pie? I  could just take the type of ingredients I […]

Maple roasted ribs with apple, cucumber and orange salad recipe

Three things I like: the maple and bacon combo sweet and spicy meat on the bone easy ribs recipes Mash that all together and I give you maple roasted ribs served with a tangy apple, cucumber and orange salad. This creation was inspired by elements of the three recipes linked above. Maple, a bit of […]

Fig, prosciutto and hazelnut salad recipe

March 25, 2013

5

I’ve mentioned previously that I do not have a green thumb at all. It’s a slightly shameful thing to admit for a self claimed food lover I know. I’m hoping to change this at some stage and perhaps dabble in some gardening. But for now, I’ve still got my folks to rely on for the […]

Chicken and quinoa salad recipe

November 20, 2012

Eating well on weeknights can be hard, Monday nights are especially bad. You’ve hardly recovered from the weekend, it’s been a long day at work and by the time you make it home for dinner, all you want to do is lie on the couch and mentally prepare yourself for the next day. Who can […]

Coriander and chilli scrambled eggs recipe

August 8, 2012

1

It’s Sunday morning and you’re feeling super lazy. Getting dressed to go out feels like a daunting task, but the hunger pangs are getting worse. What to do? My solution is to whip up an easy eggy breakfast for munching on the couch. A friend of a friend grows beautiful coriander in their garden and […]

Abacus beads recipe

July 5, 2012

7

Since Poh first cooked abacus beads in her Masterchef audition back in 2009, I have been meaning to replicate the dish at home. It has become one of my favourite dishes to cook, even though it is quite process intensive whipping this up for a mid week dinner! Now, I daresay I’ve mastered the dish […]

Cantonese style steamed fish recipe

May 28, 2012

0

This is potentially a wildly inaccurate assumption, but I’m going to make it anyway. I’ll wager that most people wouldn’t consider steamed fish to be a particularly glamourous item on a restaurant’s menu. But it really isn’t as boring as it may sound. Well executed steamed fish can be so elegant. This gentle method of […]

Corn fritters recipe

March 5, 2012

1

Corn fritters are one of those things I happen to be highly drawn to. If it’s on a breakfast menu, it’s a fair bet that I’m going to order them. So it was only a matter of time before I would attempt to master this dish in my own kitchen. And what better time than […]
