Moroccan Spice Chickpea And Spinach
Moroccan Spice Chickpea And Spinach

As a child, I lived in a tiny bustling suburb of Bombay. It was called Thane. We had a market. The market was an all encompassing term for a massive area that housed row after row of fresh fruits, vegetables and flowers under a tin shed. There was a fish market in a...

Think Red Juice
Think Red Juice

When I did the green juice last week, I had no idea how amazed many of you would be that I used a blender and not a juicer. I have a juicing station that I rarely use (because I am lazy!) and have almost always used my blender for juicing/extracting (because I am...

Mushroom Zucchini Cream Spaghettini

Zucchinis can grow in abundance like a weed if you are privvy to the fact that you may have to umm ... facilitate zucchini sex. Sydney blogger Mel talks about this delicate topic at much length and with much hilarity on her blog. Being a novice gardener, I was...

Roasted Cauliflower Soup With Crispy Parmesan Fries
Roasted Cauliflower Soup With Crispy Parmesan Fries

  On a recent trip to the Barossa valley crammed in a car with four other foodies and food writers, I asked everyone what their favourite vegetable was. I resort to questions like that when I spot a lull in conversation and because I am a mum and it is the most...

Caramel Espresso Lassi
Caramel Espresso Lassi

  The smell of coffee is just one of those little things in life that consumes you and gets entwined in your soul. It fills you up with a slow warmth even before your first sip. The anticipation that charges through your conscious state as it registers that dark,...

Crunchy Top Coconut Banana Muffins
Crunchy Top Coconut Banana Muffins

  Muffins are not the prettiest to look at. Especially if they are homemade. And especially if they are baked by me. For a very long time, I was disillusioned. I would put the batter in the prettiest paper cases, make sure I filled the cases right and chided...

Grilled Halloumi On Kale And White Beans
Grilled Halloumi On Kale And White Beans

  This is the last thing I cooked on Friday before I went off on an adventure to the Barossa valley for the very first time (and I will talk about that in length very soon). Last week I found some fresh white beans (cannelini beans) at Thomas Dux. I had never...

Lunchbox Colour Salad
Lunchbox Colour Salad

    One of the downfalls of running a small test kitchen and recipe development is the easy access to massive amounts of food lying around at all times. Thankfully for me, it is usually light, healthy and almost always savoury. But still. How many times in a...
