Crispy Cabbage Fritter With Chilli And Curry Leaf Oil

Eggless Fritters Make For Super Crispy Vegan Snacks Fritters make such excellent light meals. In the western world, there is a common misconception that fritters need eggs and or milk to bind. This is not true. Just flour and water is enough to make the perfect...

Strawberry Gin Fizz
Strawberry Gin Fizz

This strawberry gin cocktail recipe couldn't be simpler if it tried. It is essentially a gin and tonic without the tonic of course but with added fresh fruitiness of strawberry and lime. Gin is my favourite liqueur for mixing cocktails followed by rum and maybe...

Iced Spice Coconut Latte
Iced Spice Coconut Latte

A good iced coffee can be a revelation.  There are so many elements fighting for attention in an iced coffee glass. The coffee, the sweetness, the milk, the flavouring. If one is more overpowering than the others, the balance is thrown off. After experimenting for...

Grilled Cinnamon Pineapple

Last year for my birthday, we went to the snow at Thredbo. Ironically, my birthday dinner was at a Churrasco Brasserie. Me, the non meat-eater. The place looked fabulous. Smokey aromas wafted out every time the door opened and closed as we stood in the little village...

Instant Vegan Mango Ice Cream

The Secret Ingredient To Amplify The Flavour Of Mango Do you often wonder why when you make mango ice cream or smoothies at home, do they taste like bland sweetness whereas that mango ice cream from that gelato place tastes like sheer pleasure in a cone? There are two...

I work from mornings until about 3pm. Then I stop and whip up something quick and fresh for the boys knowing that they are on their way back from school, hungry and tired. It is a part of my day that I enjoy the most. That half an hour slot to create something...

Raw Kiwi Fruit Nachos

Kiwi fruit is a very underrated fruit. I don't say that lightly because I have often passed it on for flashier fruits like watermelon and mango or routine staples like bananas and apples. It was only when I had to create a recipe  and research the health benefits of...

Ginger Chia Pudding With Papaya And Lime
Ginger Chia Pudding With Papaya And Lime

I have been making this chia pudding a lot. That's because when we are on the couch at night watching Netflix, I am trying to avoid reaching for those tubs of Connoisseur ice cream that invariably end up in my shopping trolley during my supermarket dash. I have a...
