Rhubarb Strawberry Balsamic Jam
Rhubarb Strawberry Balsamic Jam

A ruby red jam made by slow roasting rhubarb and strawberries with a dash of balsamic and vanilla in a heavy cast iron pan on the cooktop is ready in just under an hour and is delightfully tart and sweet. Makes an ideal Christmas present. I am a jam fiend. My mum made...

Blood Orange Granita
Blood Orange Granita

One of the hardest citrus trees to grow, blood oranges usually have a very short season and therefore very prized in the culinary circuit. In the past few years I have seen them in abundance and their supply seems to be growing. Yay for all those blood orange groves...

Bombay Potatoes
Bombay Potatoes

Anyone who grew up in Bombay (India) will tell you that these quick spice tossed crispy cooked potatoes were India's answer to the British Raj's Fish and Chips, minus the Fish of course. A staple in every home, these potatoes grace restaurant menus, tiny eateries,...

Trashy Chestnut Brownie Cake
Trashy Chestnut Brownie Cake

Having only used chestnut flour to make pancakes in the past, I really had a hankering to bake with it on Sunday to create a really naughty brownie that was gooey and chewy and had that more-ish flavour from the nutty chestnut flour. To make things exciting I added...

Red Hot Chicken And Fried Cheese Meatballs
Red Hot Chicken And Fried Cheese Meatballs

Most work days end at five in the evening with the realisation that there isn't anything for dinner while standing in front of an open fridge crammed to capacity (something that is next on my list of resolutions to address - a lighter fridge). On those couple of...

Super Green Falafel With Turmeric Tahini Sauce
Super Green Falafel With Turmeric Tahini Sauce

I have been baking falafels for a very long time. But every time I have a "real" falafel at a Middle Eastern eatery, you know the authentic fried version, I am overcome with an urge to try it at home. Frying is a fine art, just like baking. There are a lot of...

10-Minute Vegan Raw Broccoli Tabouli

Following on the heel of this cauliflower rice recipe, I would love to this share this broccoli recipe that involves processing a whole head of broccoli including the stalk into tiny couscous like consistency. Broccoli is an amazing vegetable and quite versatile when...

Cauliflower Rice Biryani Salad
Cauliflower Rice Biryani Salad

A few years ago when people discovered that they could do so much more with cauliflower other than bake or roast it, it was like a whole new genre of cooking opened up to discover. Cauliflower was pulsed and crumbed to mimic raw rice and form a pure veggie pizza base...

Mushroom Broth
Mushroom Broth

I have yet to try bone broth. I probably never will. I have never claimed to be a vegetarian. I do enjoy my occasional chicken, more frequent fish and the odd bowl of bolognese. But despite its professed health benefits, the idea of drinking very meaty concentrated...
