Spaghetti and zucchini strips in sichuan pepper oil

September 2, 2014

6

Officially in spring now guys! Yay for more sun but boo for the onset of hayfever season. I’m really lovin’ the longer hours of daylight. Being able to go home when there it’s still light outside is putting a little spring back in my step so with some luck, this should mean I can get […]

Olinda Cafe and Produce store

July 21, 2014

I have a love hate relationship with winter. I hate catching a cold/flu. I hate the need to wear multiple pieces of clothing out only to shed it all off and lug it around as soon as you step inside anywhere. I hate waking up and going home in the dark and feeling like there […]

Cauliflower mac and cheese

June 17, 2014

5

When it’s wet and cold outside, don’t you just want to dig into a bowl of something warm and comforting? For me, this comes in the form of gooey mac and cheese. Creamy moreish goodness to satisfy the child in you. This version includes a couple of spices to add a bit of warmth and […]

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 […]

Halloumi and caramelised figs salad

February 22, 2014

3

As promised, here is the salad recipe I previewed in the last post. This time though, the recipe hasn’t been inspired from any recent meals, it was just borne from the fact that my parent’s fig tree has started to fruit. So again, I’ve been spoilt with a nice supply of plump figs. Previous experience […]

Eggplant, quinoa, barley and hazelnut salad

February 19, 2014

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 […]

Cobb Lane

January 18, 2014

0

Here I am reviewing a bakery/cafe just after saying I rarely take photos when eating out nowadays…well I do like to contradict myself every so often. Keeps life interesting ;). Anyhow Cobb Lane (13 Anderson Street, Yarraville VIC) has been on my radar for a while so I felt like I needed to write this […]

Cauliflower popcorn

I hope you had a fantastic close to 2013 and a wonderful start to the new year. Mine was surrounded by good friends and good food. It is incredibly self indulgent to praise my own food, but you’ll just have to trust me when I tell you that my guests gobbled these up with glee. […]

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 […]

Cooking as therapy and Chinese spring onion pancake recipe

April 8, 2013

I don’t really want to over share details of my personal life on my blog, but anyway…I’ve sustained a leg injury and as such, I’m currently hobbling around on crutches. If you’re lucky enough to have never needed crutches in your life, you might not understand exactly how annoying they are. They are SO annoying […]

Dry fried spicy beans recipe

January 8, 2013

0

I know it’s been hot outside and you don’t really want to turn on the stove, least of all firing up a wok. But beans are currently in season. Sweet sweet green beans that I so adore, and dry fried beans is the absolute house favourite. In fact, it’s pretty much the only way I […]

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 […]

Eggplant in a spicy coconut gravy recipe

January 9, 2012

You could be easily mistaken into thinking that I’m one of those bloggers who love to eat out, but shies away from the kitchen. I haven’t exactly posted up many recipes, and those I did post were all sweets anyway. In my defense, I do love to cook, I just find it so hard to […]

Lupino

August 11, 2011

3

There aren’t many reviews out there on Lupino (41 Little Collins Street, Melbourne VIC) just yet because it’s still pretty much brand spankin’ new! Prior to visiting, all I was told was that it’s an Italian bistro. I can now confirm that it is indeed Italian and further, it hosts a small menu of pizza, pasta […]

Warung Agus

February 6, 2011

1

Warung Agus (305 Victoria Street, West Melbourne VIC – some sites list it as North Melbourne) has got to be one of the most unassuming and lovely places I’ve had the pleasure of dining in.  In fact, I’ve driven past it a number of times, not knowing of the treasures within. But it just so happened that […]
