raw chocolate mousse

2020-01-12T04:20:26+00:00

  Chocolate mousse has long been one of my favourite desserts - because it's rich & chocolatey, yet smooth and light. At first I was a little disheartened to realise that it's classically full of sugar and dairy and generally [...]

2020-01-12T04:21:40+00:00

  There's no real story to this recipe... I was given some French du puy lentils (green lentils) in a hamper for Xmas and needed a bed for a couple of lovely plump snapper fillets left over from cooking snapper [...]

cauliflower ‘rice’

2020-01-12T04:23:57+00:00

  My favourite veges are those I like the taste of raw. Cauliflower isn't one of my favourite vegetables. But due to its mind 'nothingy' taste, it's great to carry other flavours, and in this recipe, for its 'rice-like' texture [...]

Riins’ paella

2020-01-12T04:24:51+00:00

  I'm sure there are many theories about the origins of Paella but I recently watched a TV show that explained Paella's humble beginnings in the Valencia region in Eastern Spain. Originally a farmers' food, it was cooked by the field [...]

pulled pork with spicy coleslaw

2020-01-12T04:25:55+00:00

  One of my earliest memories of family dinners is of pork chops with mustard and veges. I think we used to have chops quite regularly (thanks Mum!) and I remember I loved them - perhaps it was because it [...]

2020-01-12T04:28:41+00:00

  One of the things I'm most interested to explore when I'm visiting rural areas is the local produce. Lately I stayed in Orange (in South-Western NSW) and learnt that Orange/Bathurst is Australia's main hazelnut production region. So whilst at [...]

ajvar – roast capsicum relish

2020-01-12T04:35:35+00:00

  I'm a pretty big fan of condiments. Having a bit of a restricted diet means I need to be creative with making healthy food packed with flavour. This classic Serbian dish (pronounced 'ay-va') is known as 'Serbian vegetable caviar'. [...]

quick & easy (no-whisk) mayor

2020-01-12T04:37:08+00:00

  The formula for making mayonnaise sounds quite easy: "slowly beat oil into egg until an emulsion forms...", until you get to the desired outcome: "...where the oil molecules are uniformly dispersed in the egg and suspend there". Hmmm. I've [...]
